Got this from the internet somewhere for someone -- haven't made it myself, but updated the ingredients list based on feedback 10/07


  1. Mix sugar and self-rising flour; set aside.
  2. Bring to a rapid boil 2 sticks of butter, 1 cup of peanut butter, and 1 cup of water.
  3. Pour over dry ingredients.
  4. Add to that 1/2 cup buttermilk, eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla and then mix with mixer.
  5. Pour into greased 18" x 12" pan and bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees.
  6. To make icing, bring to a boil 1 stick of remaining butter, 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1/3 cup buttermilk, 1 teaspoon vanilla; boil, add powdered sugar, mix well, and pour over hot cake.

Made this for 'Zaar day, we were in the middle of moving house and I thought this a good idea to make for our friends who helped move the numerous boxes. Lovely flavour went down well with a pot of coffee, the icing was a new way of making icing for me, but topped the cake lovely.

Very moist and peanut-buttery! My family loved it. Remember to add about a teaspoon of both baking powder and soda, or the consistiency is a bit off. I frosted it with a different frosting recipe, because I made a layer cake out of it instead of a sheet cake. I'll definately make this again!

Yes!! The cake is moist and easy. I had to make a lot of substitutions because I didn't have everything. I used 1c milk + 1tbs lemon juice for buttermilk. 1/2c egg beaters for eggs for self-rising flour I used 2c (minus 4tbs) all-purpose flour + 1/2tsp baking powder + 1 tsp salt. Wonderful, wonderful cake.
