AUNT JUDY'S PEANUT BUTTER CAKE: Man, I have no idea who Aunt Judy is,but she may have rocketed to the top of my "favorite people list." It has to do with my weakness for all things peanut butter. I love French toast, but this simply breakfast dish is made amazingly better by spreading peanut butter on top before slathering with syrup. I love s'mores, but why relegate yourself to the lowly Hershey bar, it is so much better with a Reese's Cup. And so it goes with cake. I love cake, but where cake and peanut butter meet, I'm in heaven. Enter peanut butter cake. We had some yesterday on Monday....it was called "Aunt Judy's Peanut Butter" cake and it is sold at Zink's Meat Market in Franklin, Ohio. Wow, oh wow, this cake was amazing with a thick layer of peanutty peanut butter frosty smothering a moist, peanutty cake. It had a label on it that said it was a home-baked product and that Aunt Judy is in Germantown, Ohio. Aunt Judy, if you are out there somewhere, you can be my honorary aunt! What amazing cake, I ate way, way too much of it and may have to swing by Zink's sometime soon again. While I don't have Aunt Judy's recipe, I do have an Amish recipe for what I'm thinking has to be a very similar cake. In looking at Aunt Judy's ingredient label, the ingredients are essentially the same.

Kevin, once more you delivered a recipe that scored a touchdown! The cake was a tremendous success at work and I want to thank you. Hope you have a great week!
When you say "sour milk" do you mean like buttermilk or what, please let me know cause I would love to try this. Thanks so much 🙂
Buttermilk or a cup of milk with a tablespoon of vinegar added to it! Enjoy the cake!
The recipe for your aunt Judy's peanut butter cake calls for thick sour milk. What is sour milk? Is it buttermilk? PLEASE HELP!
Yes, Ken, Buttermilk is a perfectly fine substitute for sour milk, you'll get the same flavor
Half of the directions are missing from your "Aunt Judy's Peanut Cake." You told us how to mix the frosting and add it to the cool cake, however, you failed to tell us at which temperature and time to bake the cake. Of course I've baked cakes before and can figure it out, but prefer having the author give specific instructions. Can you add that paragraph to this recipe?
Thanks a bunch.
Thanks for catching that, Vicki, I added the missing instructions!
