Wow, make sure you have a big glass of milk to wash down this delicious treat! It tastes exactly like the Tastycake original, if not better. And it's very easy to make. I did have to increase the baking time to about 25-30 minutes. I also found that adding "dollups" of peanut butter on the cake and letting it sit a few minutes to get warm and gooey made it easier when it came time to spread the peanut butter. Thanks, Manda!

This is an easy to make cake with ingredients that you are likely to have on hand. I completely agree with the previous reviewer: the baking time is closer to 25 minutes and adding dollups of peanut butter on the warm cake made it easier to spread.

I used Splenda instead of the sugar in the cake recipe. It turned out well. I would use less cocoa powder in the icing though.

Instead of making the icing, melt milk chocolate candy bars to spread over the top (about 8 to 12 oz). Just be sure to chill the cake well after spreading with peanut butter and spread the chocolate quickly because it hardens fast.

This tastes better than Taskeycakes! I might try warming the peanut butter to make it easier to spread before I put it on next time.
