    1Steve's Note:

    This is a real peanut lovers treat. Lots of peanut flavor abounds everywhere. Be warned though this recipe is for those with a sweet tooth as well. It's very sweet and the Kids will love it. For the adults it's a decadent treat that goes well with a hot cup of coffee.

      I fixed the cake part of this recipe and iced it with a cream cheese peanut butter frosting. The cake seemed really dense to me. It was more like a hearty bread than the light fluffy cake that I was expecting. I followed the recipe exactly, but I might have made a mistake somewhere.

      If you love peanut butter, here is the cake for you! Mine turned out perfect in every way and we didn't find it too sweet. I added finely chopped peanuts to the frosting for a little added flavor and it was so yummy! My DD and her friends loved it for her birthday party! I served with vanilla ice cream and the kids inhaled it and asked for seconds!

      THis cake definitely was amazing! It should be made and left to sit overnight as the flavors meld and taste so much better the next day. The only thing I did different was to use cake flour in place of the all purpose flour. Also the 9in pans did not seem to be big enough, as this left a huge mess in the bottom of the oven. I'd use either 3 10in pans or maybe 4 9in pans next time but the mess was worth the taste in the end!
