What a treat! Could hardly wait for it to cool down before tasting. Mmmmm. Used a round pan (without the "whole"in the middle) and needed the full hour for it to bake. The last ten minutes I put a piece of parchment paper over the cake, to prevent it from browning too much. Did not have any problem with the jam being exposed, maybe cause I did not have to turn the cake, just eased it out with the help of two "handles" made of parchment paper which I had put cris-cross on the bottom of the pan (after greasing and flouring). This time I used blueberry jam and will also try it adding chocolate chips as you suggested. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

I was not a fan of this cake. It smelled like absolute heaven when I was cooking it, and fresh from the oven it was a peanut butter lovers dream wafting out on the heat. However after cutting into it, I was disappointed. I upped the amount of peanut butter and it still didn't taste like anything but dried yellow cake. <br/><br/>I'm not sure why this happened, all the instructions were followed but it was not to my taste at all. I found it boring and lifeless.

Easy, quick chaneable by changing the jam. The batter, without the jam was fantastic off the spoon. I used homemade peanut butter and melted it in the microwave before putting it in the batter. It was subtil;, but there. An inexpensive winner. Also, no sour cream in France, I used plain yogurt with no problem.
