Grab your Bottom--& HOLD ON! Peanut Butter Texas Sheetcake!


Your bottom will be as big as Texas when you're done eating a few pieces of this delectable sheet cake. But, if you're nice and share a lot of it with friends or take it to a picnic or potluck...you should be okay. (I made it last week for a funeral dinner, at the church and like a fool, decided to make one for our family. NOT A SMART DECISION!)

One or two pieces is okay, but please DO NOT allow yourself to be left alone in the house with this whole cake. I'm warning you, it's REALLY DANGEROUS. If you're due for a yearly physical, please do not make this cake until you've already had all your blood tests, otherwise, you'll be getting a call from the doctor's office to please report and pick up your cholesterol prescription!

Only having access to a COUPLE pieces of this deadly sin should be plenty. SO USE THIS RECIPE WITH CAUTION. Please. Thank You.

ON THE SUNNY SIDE .... anyone you share this with will love it and it will remind them of a less-rich form of peanut butter fudge. It goes very well with a cold glass of milk, or a nice hot cup of coffee or tea!

(*Of course, it's always helpful if you have a spare pound of butter or margarine and a large supply of peanut butter in the house before you start this recipe.)

Texas Peanut Butter Cake: (preheat oven to 350 degrees)

CAKE:

First, boil these ingredients, stirring often to prevent sticking to pan:

1/2 c. peanut butter

1 c. water

2 sticks margarine

Meanwhile, sift these ingredients:

2 c. flour

2 c. sugar

1 t. soda

1 t. salt

Have ready these items:

2 eggs

1/2 c. buttermilk or soured milk

Bring the first three ingredients to a rapid boil. The pour the hot mixture over your sifted ingredients. Stir well, then add eggs & milk and mix. Pour into a large, greased sheet cake pan. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean.

FROSTING:

Bring to a boil:

1 stick margarine

1/2 cup peanut butter

2 T. buttermilk our soured milk

1 t. vanilla

when it has boiled, remove it from heat, then add up to 3-4 cups of powdered sugar and mix well. Frost cake with warm frosting after cake is cool.

TOO GOOD FOR WORDS! SLICE THINLY...enjoy the resulting love handles!

Oh, my! Look-a-here what I found! I'm a native Texan and never heard of this delicious-sounding cake before! I make Texas Sheet Cake all the time, but I'll have to try this one this coming weekend. As for the warnings, it may be too late for me already. My bottom is already there!
