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.

I made this cake with chocolate frosting and it turned out great. Very moist and flavorful and quite easy to make. It was a hit!

I think I did something wrong. My cake baked for forty minutes and I had to take it out because I was afraid it was going to start burning. The batter tasted yummy though. The frosting did not spread well, even on a cake right out of the oven. It set like fudge, but way to quick to spread right. Still, I got it done.

And hubby's huge tub of peanut butter he brought when we were married is almost gone. Yay! I think I'll have to buy more though, because I'm having a huge peanut butter craving lately.

Still with all these problems, it's a yummy cake. Thanks!

I give this 5 stars just for the pb fudge icing! The cake flavor wasn't very distinctive...but it held the yummy icing. Great with vanilla ice cream. Had to add lil' extra milk when making the frosting to make it pour-able. My MIL raised her eyebrows when she saw me making the batter with the boiled ingredients...(this was for the grownups to eat at my DDs 2nd bday party). It was so delish that everyone took home the recipe! Thanks for a keeper!

Fantastic! My inlaws had been wanting a peanut butter cake like one that a long ago relative made. I made this cake this morning and carried it to a family gathering and it was a huge hit. I followed your ingredient list and instructions with the following changes: I no buttermilk so I used milk and lemon juice; I beat the frosting for a good deal of time with an electric mixer to get the desired consistency. My husband has already requested another peanut butter cake. Thanks for posting this recipe.
