Peanut Butter Pie Sheet Cake

I made this to take to our first two Dave Ramsey FPU classes.  It is WELL worth the steps to make this!  I liked that it makes a jelly roll pan and could feed many!
Peanut Butter Pie Sheet Cake

1 (15.25 ounce) package devil’s food cake mix
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
3/4 cup sour cream
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon instant espresso granules dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water(can use water only)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a half sheet pan well.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, or with a hand mixer in a large bowl, beat together the cake and pudding mixes, sour cream, oil, eggs, vanilla and espresso water mixture. Beat for about two minutes on medium speed until well combined. Spread into greased half sheet pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs when inserted. Cool to room temperature.
Peanut Butter Filling

1 cup heavy cream
8 ounces cream cheese
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

Beat cream until stiff and fluffy. Set aside. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream the cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in the peanut butter, and then slowly add in powdered sugar until incorporated. Mix in sweetened condensed milk, vanilla and lemon juice. Fold in 1/3 of the whipped cream and then mix in the remaining. Pour the peanut butter filling over the cooled cake and refrigerate.

2 cups whipped cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
chocolate syrup {optional garnish}
chopped peanuts {optional garnish}

Whip cream with powdered sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Spread over top peanut butter pie filling. Top with chocolate syrup and chopped peanuts. Refrigerate 1-2 hours or until filling is set. Cut into squares and serve.


  1. What size is a half sheet pan? I have a 10 x 15 will that work?

  2. That will work just fine. That was what I used.
