Peanut Butter Texas Sheet Cake

If you're a regular reader of The Budget Diet, you know that when it comes to dessert, I believe you should "bake it, not buy it." Texas Sheet Cakes are BIG, YUMMY and FASTER thank making a cake from a box mix because there's no cooling time required. I first introduced you to Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake (click on recipe tab above), and then White Texas Sheet Cake. My latest addition is Peanut Butter Texas Sheet Cake. Of course, you could go CRAZY and make the Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake with the Peanut Butter Frosting or the White Texas Sheet Cake with the Chocolate Frosting...have fun! The results will always be a super-moist, super-easy and super-delicious cake.
