Peanut Butter Cake Dessert Recipe

If you need a quick, easy homemade dessert this is it! My teen made this Peanut Butter Pan Cake from the Meals in Minutes Gooseberry Patch Cookbook. Most of the ingredients you will have on hand if not all of them. Some people think that a box mix is quick, which it is, but if you are wanting something just as quick that is homemade this is the cake. I really only takes a few minutes to add the ingredients together and bake. Give this dessert recipe a try!

Peanut Butter Pan Cake


3 c. all purpose flour
2 c. sugar
2 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1/4 c. baking cocoa
2 t. vanilla extract
3/4 c. oil
2 T. vinegar
2 c. water


Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and baking cocoa in a large bowl; mix well. Add vanilla, oil and vinegar; stir in water, mixing well. Spread into a lightly greased 13"x9" baking pan; bake at 350 degrees for 35 min. Spread Peanut Butter Frosting on cake when cool. Makes 15.
