  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10x15 inch pan. Sift together the flour and baking powder; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine eggs, sugar and vanilla. Beat on high speed of an electric mixer until light and lemon-colored. Beat in the flour mixture. Microwave milk and margarine about 2 minutes, or until it begins to bubble. Stir into batter.
  3. Pour batter into 10x15 inch pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  4. When cake is cool, plop peanut butter all over and spread evenly to the edges. Refrigerate to set, about 1 hour.
  5. In a microwave safe dish, melt chocolate and spread evenly over peanut butter layer. Refrigerate to allow chocolate to harden.

I was initially leary of this recipe because I don't feel that the picture makes it look very appetizing, but then I notices a better pic under the 'related photos' and decided to give it a try ...

If you love those little snack cakes that come in a package, you'll love this big cake as well. I made this for my daughters' birthday and it was a huge hit with the gang. Definitely spread the ...

Delicious! I made it with 2 tsp vanilla and 2 tsp of butter, but the same otherwise. For the topping, I used one regular size jar of PB and one regular sized bag of milk chocolate chips mixed ...

This photo doesn't look like the recipe. I've made this cake for years and have rave reviews every time I serve it. I started using a box yellow cake mix and bake in a cookie sheet at 350 for ...

Mixed feelings about this one. Loved the flavor, but the texture left something to be desired. Now mind you, I never grew up with tandy cakes, and had never heard of them before finding this rec...
