The first time I had this cake, I was at my parent’s “block” party.  I use that term loosely, because, we live in the country.  In a place where blocks are measured by acres.

Their annual Memorial Day neighborhood block party consists of all the neighbors gathering where their property lines meet and having a gigantic pot luck picnic.  Although, I call it a pig-nic because my brother’s contribution is a full roasted pig.

Any who, back to the cake.  As awesome as this Peanut Butter Tandy Cake recipe is, I cannot take credit for it.

My lovely friend, Olivia, whipped this baby up for the last block party. It was like a beacon on the dessert table.  Just glistening with peanut buttery chocolately goodness.  One bite of the pillowy soft cake and I was hooked.  It tastes exactly like Tastykake Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes.  Remember them from back in the day?

By the way, did I mention that Olivia is 10?  Yep, 10 years old and already she’s a whiz in the kitchen!  I know I’m impressed!

One afternoon, Olivia came over and showed me just how easy this recipe is.   You can check out the video here!

I strongly encourage you to give Olivia’s easy Peanut Butter Tandy Cake recipe a try.  I hope she’s making it for this year’s party!

  1. Stopping by from Mouthwatering Mondays. This looks great and I need to come to your block party! Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow

  2. My hubby is a confirmed peanut butter/chocoholic. The kids & I will be making this surprise cake for his birthday on Sunday. Maddie loved watching Olivia make it. I may have to use half size jelly roll pans so each kid can make their own. Thanks for the great idea!
