I usually do brownies in those situations.

Do let us know what you end up choosing!

Pb Cake:



You will need a  9x13 pan, greased


in a sauce pan heat

1C. water

4 T (heaping) Peanut Butter

1 1/2 t salt

1 c marg.


once melted slowly incorporate

2 eggs

1/2 c sour milk

1 t vanilla


being careful not to cook your eggs in the mix (you can let it cool slightly first, or just blend your eggs and warm it up slowly by adding some of the warm mixture to the eggs, than mixing it all together)


mix in


2 c. flour

2 c. sugar

1 t. soda


Bake in 375 oven for 20 min. Do not over bake it. It will be soft and spongy..

While it's baking, make the frosting using the previous saucepan


melt together

1/2 c marg

1/3 c milk

4 T peanut butter (heaping)

1 t. vanilla

1 lb powdered sugar


Pour over the cake while they are BOTH still hot. TIP: use a spatula to loosen the cake from the edges of the pan first, so the frosting goes down the sides rather than outside the pan. It will be runny.


than let it cool as long as you can stand to wait and try some!!! 



I know the recipe sounds complicated, but really it isn't. The basic idea is to melt the PB and marg so it mixes in better. Besides once you try it once, you find it VERY worth it..
