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.

Oh my goodness. This is just as delicious as everyone says. I had to alter it slightly, as I was lower on powdered sugar than I thought. I used a bit of brown sugar and white sugar to substitute, and it was incredible!

I loved the recipe!!! I made the chocolate cake part with a triple chocolate brownie walnut mix and used extra chunky peanut butter, OMG it was awesome!!! I agree the next day when it was cooled, it was so much better!

I think this is better than the original Gooey Butter Cake I have been making for years. Definately not a diet food, but worth the calories. My co-workers loved it.

The cake turned out rich and delicious. I used P. B. Loco's peanut butter with caramel and that turned out wonderfully. Kat is going to love this one! :D Thanks Barb.
