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
This cake was yummy......my sista just HAD to have me make it. It was especially nice when you bite into it and there was a peanut butter surprise there! It had a different texture than normal cakes but I liked it...and that's saying alot 'cuz I usually dont like cake!!! Thanks!
