Maybe you remember Texas sheet cakes brought to picnics? I have always had white or chocolate, you may have seen my post of those in the past. Since our family is a huge peanut butter lover, I decided to attempt this one I found in our Blessed Sacrament Church cookbook from the 1970's. It was pretty darn tasty, can't believe I never tried it before. Peanut butter cake tends to be a little dry, so be sure and watch you don't over bake this one and follow the package instructions.
(psst no one will know you used a cake mix, I just love easy recipes.)

Peanut Butter Frosting
