Another Recipe

Hello my crafty friends, I hope you are enjoying a pleasant Sunday with your father's. We had a lovely day with the kids and grand-kids stopping by for the ones that live around us. The other's called to wish their Dad a happy day except for our son who is deployed. He doesn't always have access to contact us, but I hope he was able to call home to his children so they could tell him Happy Father's Day. So on our married guys I usually make them a yummy and give them a card for Father's Day. So for my #2 son I gave him one of his favorite desserts and that is tandy cake. He loves peanut butter and chocolate together. Who doesn't right?! lol So one of the things I used to make all the boys when they were home was tandy cakes. Just like the hostess cakes-remember their tandy cakes?? Well mine are along the same lines of them.  Here's a picture of them after I spread the chocolate on top:

And here is my my son digging in to them (see the cutie beside him, yep that's my grand-daughter):

And here is my DIL and my other cutie grand-daughter getting fed ice cream by her Pap-paw, she is a bird I tell you:

Sorry I didn't get a picture of the cake after it was taken out of the pan, we all were to busy eating it. lol  But here is the recipe if you want to try it for yourself.

Tandy Cake

You will want to bake this in a jelly roll pan at 350 degrees for 25 minutes

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. oil
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup milk
2 cups flour
peanut better
melting chocolate

Mix all ingredients together and place in a greased jelly roll pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25  minutes. Take from oven and immediately spread peanut butter on top of the hot cake. I don't have a measurement for this, I just plop it on there and spread it around.  

Let the cake and peanut butter cool completely. Then once cooled melt chocolate and spread over the top of the peanut butter. Once again I don't measure, I just plop it on and spread it around.

After the chocolate has set up you can slice into bars and enjoy. Very simple and easy recipe to make.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you for the lovely comments!  Come back tomorrow for a sweet post for BBTB2! Until then....crafty hugs!

Thanks so much for sharing this with us Brenda... this sounds delicious!!! I do have a few questions... first.. what is a jelly roll pan? second.... once you add the chocolate... does it automatically get hard after time or does it stay melty?

A jelly roll pan is like a cookie sheet only more heavier and won't twist in the oven like a thin cookie sheet, make sense?? Yes, the chocolate will set up hard again. Sometimes to speed the process I will set the pan in the fridge to get the chocolate hard faster. Great questions Jo!
