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. :)

The cake turned out just a little bit dry, but the icing more than made up for it. I made it as a layer cake with chocolate filling and the peanut butter icing. Very delicious.

Well, it is possible that I did something wrong, but I followed the recipe to a T, and the cake came out dry. The frosting was fantastic, though. Sadley, nobody at the picnic touched the cake, except for one girl who I think just felt bad that nobody would eat it! I had some, and it just wasn't right. I may try this again, just to make sure I did everything right. Thank you anyway for the recipe.
