Beat in melted morsels. Gradually beat in flour mixture alternately with water until smooth. Spread into prepared pan.

  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately sprinkle remaining peanut butter and milk chocolate morsels. Let stand 5 minutes or until morsels are shiny; spread evenly. Sprinkle with BUTTERFINGER® pieces. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.

I made this cake for a birthday this week and it was ok as is but I think a couple of changes would make it better. Next time I will use all peanut butter chips in the cake and spread on too but swap out some of the flour with unsweetened cocoa. In my opinion it needed a bigger peanut butter flavor but the base recipe was very moist and a good starting place. Thank you for posting!! Read More
