- Spread peanut butter mixture over cake batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes; MAKE SURE NOT TO OVERBAKE, the center will be a little GOOEY.
- Serve with whipped cream or ice cream, ENJOY.
Very good but very, very rich. This recipe is a really high fat & high calorie recipe, so I cut it down a little by using-- light Country Crock, reduced fat peanut butter, reduced fat/light cream cheese. And it tastes amazing! Adding the fat-free whip cream or light ice cream adds some calories back in but its needed to cut the richness. Four stars due to the high fat/cals. Also, very easy to make.
Super yummy cake that was easy to make. The bottom layer tasted a lot like a brownie. I will definitely make it again.
