Why I Love This Recipe

If you have been following my son Dan's blog Urban Veggie Garden you will know he is making hard cider. He found Hergott's Cider Mill in Waterloo that does not pasteurize the cider. They are selling the cider part of the business and keeping the honey which they will be selling at their new location. They have a store as well and I bought this cookbook "Mennonite Country Style Recipes". In browsing through the book I saw this cake and it sounded like it would be very good. It is really good, moist, tender the frosting is not to sweet.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/4 cup soft butter
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup warm water
1 cup thick sour milk (add 2 tbsp. vinegar, let stand a couple minutes to thicken)
2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda


Preheat oven to 350º.

In small bowl combine flour salt and baking soda with whisk. In mixer bowl combine butter and peanut butter until smooth. Add brown sugar and mix until smooth, add eggs, one at at time. Add warm water and sour milk and mix until smooth and silky. Add flour a little at a time. Combine until just mixed.

Pour mixture into prepared baking pans. Either 2 9" baking pans or a 9 X 13" pan. Grease and flour pans.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes for the 9" pans and 30 to 40 minutes for the 9 X 13" pan.
