I love sheet cake recipes. Really, any thing that uses those big 15×10 jelly roll pans are wonderful for me. Every couple of weeks, I bring in treats for my co-workers and, of course, my husband wants to bring some for his co-workers too. Making one recipe that makes so many servings is a time-saver!

This is a peanut butter sheet cake that, like most sheet cakes, is super simple. Most people do a homemade peanut butter frosting with a peanut butter sheet cake, but I like chocolate. And I like the taste (and ease!) of canned frosting, so that’s what I use! Plus peanut butter and chocolate are a fabulous combination! If you want to do a homemade frosting, I’ve included it here.


Peanut Butter Sheet Cake
Cake Ingredients:

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1/2 cup skim milk
1 tsp vanilla

Peanut Butter Frosting:
(or use a can of chocolate frosting!)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
4 cups powdered sugar (confectioners’ sugar)
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cake Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. In a medium to large pot add the peanut butter, water, and butter and bring to a boil. Remove from heat.
3. Mix together the sugar, brown sugar, flour, salt, and baking soda. Add to the peanut butter mixture.
4. Add the eggs, milk, and vanilla to the pan and mix well.
5. Pour into greased jelly roll pan.
6. Bake for 15 minutes at 375 degrees.

For the Frosting:
1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.
2. Add the peanut butter and mix until smooth.
3. Remove from the heat. Add milk, powdered sugar and vanilla and stir very well.
4. Frost the cake while the cake is still warm. If using the homemade frosting, the frosting should be warm too.

Have you and your kids read the popular series Ivy+Bean by author Annie Barrows? Then you know Ivy+Bean The Musical at the Rose this month will have vibrant characters and lots of humor! My three kids are so super excited to see the wild antics and unusual friendship of Ivy+Bean.

ivy and bean

Show Description:

“Bean has a big personality and big ambitions to make her mark on the world (or at least her neighborhood). And her plans certainly don’t include her bossy big sister, Nancy, or Ivy, the strange (and boring) girl next door. But when Bean discovers that Ivy might be a witch, the two embark on a unique friendship. After Bean and her friends struggle to set a world record and Nancy is left in charge to make life miserable, Ivy’s talents might be exactly what Bean needs to succeed. Based on the popular books, this musical will make you believe in magic!”
