I used strawberry jam and we enjoyed this recipe. It does taste like a PB & J sandwich. Thanks for sharing! ***Made for PRMR***

I'm a big fan of peanut butter and jelly and I can tell I liked this because I had to keep "tasting" it to decide on my review! I served it as a dessert last night and my son - also a big PB&J fan, said it was "perfect." My husband approved of it as a "not too sweet" dessert (a plus for him) - he said it was better than he expected. I found it more dessert cakelike than coffee-cakelike, if you know what I mean. It's nice and moist and peanut buttery. Another reviewer mentioned drizzling preserves on top, and I'm sure that would be quite good. Thanks for posting!
