2 cups all purpose flour

2 cups sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 stick ( 8 Tablespoons) unsalted butter

1/2 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter 

1/3 vegetable oil 

1 cup cold coffee 

2 large eggs, beaten 

1/2 cup half in half 

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp butter flavoring, optional 


1/2 cup unsalted butter

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

6 Tablespoons milk

1 tsp vanilla

3 cups powdered sugar 

1/3 cup crushed dry roasted peanuts 

Lets Make It-

   Preheat oven to 350.  Spray a 12x17 inch sheet pan with non stick spray.  Set aside.

   In a large bowl add the flour, sugar, soda and salt.  Whisk to combine.  

   Add butter to a small dish and melt in the microwave, add peanut butter and vegetable oil.  Blend till smooth.  Add to the dry ingredients along with the coffee, eggs, half n half, vanilla and butter flavoring.  Combine with a spoon till smooth and transfer to the prepared sheet pan.  

   Bake for 20 minutes.  Remove from oven and make the frosting.

   To a small saucepan, add the butter and peanut butter, bring to a boil, remove from heat and add the milk, vanilla and powdered sugar.  Beat till smooth.  If too thick to pour, add a bit more milk to thin out.  Pour over the warm cake and sprinkle with the crushed peanuts and let completely cool to room temp.  Cut into pieces and serve.  This cake also freezes well.   Remember is for sharing...give a few to your neighbor! 😉
