Weekly Pinterest Project: Week 52-Peanut Butter Sheet Cake

20140629-153854-56334072.jpg

Today’s post marks the 52nd Pinterest project I’ve completed! Yahoo! I made it a whole year posting a new Pinterest craft or food item I’ve made on a weekly basis! Today’s post is two in one. I kept seeing a peanut butter sheet cake all over Pinterest and Facebook and wanted to try it. I have made a Texas sheet cake before (chocolate cake with delicious chocolate icing) but hadn’t made a peanut butter cake before now. However, all the recipes I found called for buttermilk and I wasn’t going to get a quart of buttermilk just to use a small amount of it. I googled how to make buttermilk and came up with all sorts of ways to make it, including adding vinegar, lemon juice, or cream of tarter to milk. I happened to have some sour cream that needed used up, so I mixed together sour cream and milk to make buttermilk. It seemed to work well-it was super easy and I loved that I didn’t have to go to the store, ha!IMG_6814I just mixed the milk right into the sour cream container.

For the peanut butter sheet cake, I used this recipe. I highly recommend making this cake for a large gathering-it makes a huge amount (you bake it in a 10×15 jelly roll pan)!

IMG_6822I thought the cake was good (I prefer chocolate though) but the peanut butter icing was really good! I made the icing on the stove by boiling butter, peanut butter, and milk and added powdered sugar and vanilla to the mixture. It was almost like eating peanut butter fudge!

Yum!
