  1. This was great , I did expect it to be a little sweeter but definetly good for breasfast with a cup of coffee . I did use 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1 cup of white flour . Worked great ! Thank you .
  2. THis is an eccelent cake that *I* think has enough peanut butter taste but i would say if your want a little more of a definite topping double it and keep the cake recipe the same this will give u big peanutbutter balls on top instead of realy little ones. overal its a sweet peanutbutter cake that is DEFINITLY worth a try!
  3. I love peanut butter but this didnt come out as well as I'd thought. It didnt quite have as much of a peanut buttery taste to me as I expected. It also was a bit on the dry side. I did follow the recipe exactly and it was easy to make. It was good with chocolate ice cream and not bad with coffee in the morning. I think the suggestion of a chocolate glaze would have made it a bit better. Not a bad cake, but just a little "blah".
