Oh wow! A major diet breaker and worth every bite! I used creamy peanut butter, and then upped crushed peanuts to 1/2 a cup! This makes a dense cake, very rich, and a little piece goes a long, long way! Even better the next day with some Nutella spread on it! Thanks meow!, this was worth falling of the wagon!

this was great! I used half white sugar, half Splenda and 3/4 cup peanut butter and glazed with Goody Glaze. Wonderfully perfect peanut butter flavor!

This was pretty good... the kids gobbled it down. Candy's the peanut-butter-aholic and she found it wasn't as "peanut buttery" as she would have liked. Perhaps we can come up with some sort of peanut butter glaze or something ;) Tom thought it was very good. We had leftovers smeared with Nutella... yummy!
