Pretty good. A little too sweet, but nice texture. Easy to make.

I made this for a family gathering and it was a big hit and was gone in a second. The kids liked it and also parents did too.

I baked this cake last weekend. It was delicious and moist. Since it was very easy to make,I made two cakes - one to share with my husbands co-workers and one for a veterinarian hospital as a thank you for taking good care of our dog while he was ill. I'll be making this cake again very soon. Thanks for all the great recipes.

Office loved it!

I made this recipe last night and brought it into the office. Everyone raved about it. It was pretty easy to make and didnt take much time.

Judges love it, too!

Last month, my daughter made this cake for a local festival contest; it won First Place in its class, plus Reserve Champion in her age division. The judges commented on the fantastic taste, plus the "luxury" of having chocolate-covered peanuts in it! Yesterday, she made the same cake again (It turned out even better this time!) for the Peanut Festival and won First Place. Everyone who has tasted it bragged about it being so good!

I read the other reviews and took the tip about putting strawberry jam between two layers of cake. My family like it very well and the jam helped offset the dryness of the cake.

This cake was very moist. I used applesauce instead of the vegetable oil and a lower fat peanut butter. I would suggest checking the cake on occasion if you don't want the cake to dry out. I will definitely make this cake again.
