The Reverse Peanut Butter Cake

My dad’s favourite sandwich is one of his own invention: the reverse peanut butter sandwich.  A reverse peanut butter sandwich consists of:

  • one slice of white bread
  • about 1/2 inch of Kraft (i.e., full of salt and sugar and shortening) peanut butter
  • about 1/2 inch of Imperial (i.e., hydrogenated!) margarine, on top of the peanut butter
  • cardiologist not included

A sandwich to make a daughter with a PhD in nutrition proud.

So when my sister had a birthday party for my dad, she she invented the “reverse peanut butter cake”:reverse peanut butter cake

The reverse peanut butter cake, which consists of:

  • vanilla cake (to represent the white bread)
  • peanut butter frosting
  • decorated with buttercream frosting

And apparently it was very delicious!

  1. Wow, and I thought it was only my mother who was crazy that way: she used to put butter on peanut butter and jam sandwiches, and on sandwiches that had mayo on them. And I”m not talking about just a bit of butter, either.

    Of course, we never had that crappy goop that masquerades for “peanut butter” growing up. Just the all natural kind–I think the only added ingredient was salt. Nowadays I just go for the ones without anything but peanuts.

  2. Me too. That goop that masquerades as “peanut butter” is disgusting – it tastes like salt, sugar and shortening – I can’t taste peanuts at all! I’m all about the nothing-but-squished-up-peanut kind – I once mistakenly got one that was squished up peanuts and salt and it tasted so salty! Ick!
