Assembly Directions: 
Cake: Combine all ingredients for cake mix; beat together until smooth, about 2-3 minutes. Spray a 9×13 inch pan with oil and pour in cake mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Cake should be done when the center springs back to the touch and the sides are just starting to pull away from the pan.
Frosting: Blend peanut butter and butter with an electric mixer. Add in milk and vanilla; mix together. Add in the powder sugar and beat until frosting is fluffy. This is a thick frosting, but if it seems too thick add in another tablespoon of milk.

Freezing and Cooking Directions: 
To Freeze: Allow cake to cool completely then spread frosting on top. This is a sheet cake so frosting is only applied to the top. Frosting should be spread on thickly, about an inch deep. Flash freeze to set frosting then cover with foil, label and freeze. Thaw completely to serve.

Budget Tips: 
By using the cake mix you are saving lots of time in the kitchen and they are great loss leader sale bargains. I always stock up if I have coupons and hit a great sale. You could substitute devil’s food cake mix or any of the chocolate cake mix flavors on the market.
