Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Sheet Cake

Chocolate Peanut Butter Sheet CakeI want to make nearly everything on easy.everyday.eats. When I saw the Cookie Sheet Cake, I was certain I had to make it straight away. And send the majority of it with C to work, or else I would have eaten the entire cake. When I started making this, C asked "What is that awful smell?" I told him I was heating up chocolate. And he replied that he hated the smell of chocolate. Add it to the list of smells he doesn't not like: bread baking, garlic sauteing and chocolate. He cannot be serious. This cake comes together so quickly. In the time it takes to mix it up, the oven preheats and you are set to bake it. In the time it takes to bake, you can make the frosting and clean up the dishes from the cake making. And then you have cake~ warm, gooey, chocolate peanut butter cake.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Sheet Cake and Frosting

1 stick butter
3 ½ tablespoons cocoa
½ cup oil
1 cup water
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
½ cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda

Melt the butter and cocoa in a pan. Add oil and water. Bring it to a boil. Pour it over flour and sugar and mix until blended. Add the eggs, milk, and baking soda. Pour batter into a greased cookie sheet pan and bake for 19 to 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

1/3 cup milk
1 stick butter
3 ½ tablespoons cocoa
1/3 cup peanut butter
3 ½ cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Bring the milk, butter and cocoa to a boil. Remove from heat. Add in the peanut butter and stir until melted. With an electric mixer add the powdered sugar and vanilla; beat until creamy, do not overbeat. Spread on warm cake.
