    I used strawberry jam and we enjoyed this recipe. It does taste like a PB & J sandwich. Thanks for sharing! ***Made for PRMR***

    I'm a big fan of peanut butter and jelly and I can tell I liked this because I had to keep "tasting" it to decide on my review! I served it as a dessert last night and my son - also a big PB&J fan, said it was "perfect." My husband approved of it as a "not too sweet" dessert (a plus for him) - he said it was better than he expected. I found it more dessert cakelike than coffee-cakelike, if you know what I mean. It's nice and moist and peanut buttery. Another reviewer mentioned drizzling preserves on top, and I'm sure that would be quite good. Thanks for posting!

    This was delicious and easy to make. I made these over the weekend and my family raved about them! I used strawberry preserves that I had just made and as you can see I even drizzled some on top.. YUM! I made this for spring photo tag 08. Thanks for posting CaliforniaJan!
