CAFE SPECIAL: Peanut Butter Sheet Cake

Fall is in the air - along with cooler temps, a bit of rain . . . and Football! My friend Martha Grunau shared this recipe - says it's delicious. She was making it for their OU Tailgate party last weekend. Works for me! Whether you have it for a tailgate or just watching your favorite team on the TV at home, this is sure to please the sweet lovers in your family.

Thanks, Martha! Go Sooners!


1/2 cup peanut butter
1 stick butter
1/2 cup oil
1 cup water

Boil above ingredients together just until bubbly. Remove from heat.

2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix well and pour into 9 x 13 cookie sheet pan with sides. Batter will be very thin. Bake at 375 for 20 - 25 minutes. Cool slightly, then top with icing.

1/2 cup peanut butter
1 stick butter
1/3 cup milk

Bring above ingredients to a boil. Remove from heat and add:

1 box confectioners' (powdered sugar)
1 tsp. vanilla

Beat until smooth, then spread over slightly cooled cake. 

Sounds delish! Any other tailgaters out there? How do you celebrate game day?

Patti! Laughing because we've had so many of those football days in front of our TV. Hubby is fixin' to turn on the game now.

Thanks, Heather, for coming by. My friend Martha is a wonderful cook, so if she says it's good, I believe her. And I'll try it the next time we have a crowd. A little too much for just my hubby and me.

We don't really have the "tailgate" thing in the UK, but this sounds delicious for any gathering of friends :)

Hi Rachel! What do you do for snacks for sporting events in UK? I visited once years ago, but the only sporting event we saw was a local cricket match somewhere in N. Yorkshire. Interesting, but we had no idea what was going on.

Still, the recipe would work for anytime you got a group together. Thanks for stopping by.
