i use this recipe at home except i only use 1 3/4 cup sugar 1 cup pb and melted hershey bars (about 1 lb) i also melt the pb because if you put it on and try to spread it on the hot cake sometimes it will tear the cake. 30 seconds in the microwave and a stir and it goes on fast and easy. you will NOT be disappointed with these--better than the tastycake brand!

I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed in this cake. I love peanut butter and chocolate but this cake didn't cut it. The cake had an odd texture really chewy almost like rubber. I agree with the user who said that the peanut butter needed to be sweetened. Plus 2 cups of peanut butter was way too much. I heated it to help it spread and it oozed over the sides of my pan. Even though I greased and floured my pan the cake still stuck. Sadly this isn't a keeper for me. Read More

Not a bad treat. Everyone seemed to like it although my son thought it was a white cake! It is more a pale yellow. In consideration of the reviews I only put in 12 oz chocolate (2 bags of Christmas bells melted down) and added about 1TB of peanut butter. This made the chocolate topping less hard and easier to cut. Read More

This is an absolute hit everywhere I take it!! It is enjoyed by both adults and children. It is the homemade version of Peanutbutter Tastycake (even better). And it's a large tray so there is plenty to go around. Read More

This was very good and very easy to make. It really did taste like a Tastycake! I do not have a jelly roll pan but I made it on a stonewar "bar" pan which is about the size of a cookie sheet. Because it is stoneware it took about 5 -10 minutes longer to cook than the recipe directed but still turned out very well. I will definitely be making this again. Read More

Good flavor but didn't care for the texture of the cake...a little on the tough side. Read More

This tastes just something I used to buy in Philadelphia. I have made these numerous times and always get raves for them. I gave one to my grouchy UPS man and he is now unbelievably friendly. A real hit! Read More
