Recipe by Irmgard

I got this recipe years ago from an advertisement for Kraft Peanut Butter. I've made it several times to bring along on picnics, as per its name, and it's always been a big hit.

Very moist and delicious. Have made it with the frosting and also used the frosting on a chocolate cake. Thanks for the contribution. :)
