Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Cake

It's a's a cake! After receiving my latest issue of Food Network magazine I had to make this easy, fun cake for our neighbor's boys.
Of course every adult in the room wanted a piece also.-including me!

*easy version
mix a white cake mix according to package directions
Bake in an 8X8 or 9X9 pan lined and buttered with parchment paper. You will have cake left over.
Remove from pan, cool completely

When cool, slice off the top of cake to even and create a bread appearance. Slice remaining cake in half so it looks like two pieces of bread.

Peanut butter frosting
    Mix 1/2 c creamy peanut butter
     1/2 c softened butter
     3-4 Tbs milk
     powdered sugar- enough to make a spreadable consistency.
Cover bottom layer of cake with peanut butter frosting, letting it gently slide off the edges for effect, top with jelly and place remaining cake on top. Slice into two triangles.

Option 2
Homemade White Cake- Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book
Preheat oven to 350
2 1/2 c all purpose flour
2 c sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/3 c buttermilk or sour milk
1/2 c softened butter or shortening-( note using butter will slightly yellow the cake as will vanilla that is not clear. This cake was made with butter and it still looked like bread. For pure white use regular shortening such as Crisco and clear vanilla which can be purchased anywhere cake making supplies are sold.)
1 tsp vanilla
4 egg whites

Butter and line 8x8 or 9x9 pan with parchment and butter again.
Combine flour, sugar, soda, powder, and salt. Add vanilla and milk and shortening, mix on low for 30 seconds, then increase to medium and beat for 2 minutes, scraping bowl.
Pour into pan- again you will have extra
Bake until center tests clean, about25-30 minutes.
continue as directed above.
