Texas Sheet Cake

the word cake is deceiving this is more like a brownie, no fudge well it is great. Good to make for parties because it is made in a large sheet cake pan. Be ready to wash dishes with this one. The peanut butter is optional (not in my house) and you can make with walnuts, peanuts or any kind you like.

Mix together and set aside:

2 cups of each, flour and sugar
