Disappointed. After all the great reviews, I can't say this was a hit. Peanut Butter topping was nothing special. The cake itself was very good and quite moist. By the way 10 tablespoons of butt...

Very good once I followed the recipe in full. I tried to get off easy by not broiling but the icing was much too grainy that way. I also stirred chocolate and peanut butter chips into the cake...

I just made a Devil's Food cake from a mix, and then spread on the peanut butter icing, and sprinkled with mini-chocolate chips. Sooo yummy! My family of 8 gobbled it up in one sitting.

Thank you! This is exactly what I was looking for. The Amish make a cake very similar to this and its impossible to find a peanut butter ICING. All you can find is frosting, which I didn't want....
