Peanut Butter Cake


The twelfth of April is Milton & I's wedding anniversary.  This year we celebrated 11 years of being married.  He spent his morning planting corn and working on equipment, while PV and I ran errands.  Then we began painting and redoing our daughters bedroom!

My husband enjoys cakes and cookies.  So in honor of our anniversary I decided to make a new recipe.  This recipe came from a friend at church.  Well, actually it  came from a relative of Milton's, almost everyone is related in one way or another in our congregation it seems! :)   It's a delicious cake and I have been wanting to make it myself.  

So here you go!  I hope you enjoy!
