This is a very unique, delicious cake. The cake itself is not peanut butter flavored, but Reese's Cups crumbled on top of the batter before baking add a delicious layer between the cake and chocolate frosting. Enjoy!

It's good, but not amazing. The recipe says to use 6 peanut butter cups. I used 8, and I still couldn't tell they were there. This mostly just tastes like an oatmeal cake, which is good, but I guess I just wanted more peanut butter and chocolate flavor
