I made the cake exactly as the recipe was written, with the exception of using milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet chips. The baking time was exactly 55 minutes. I did not do the thin "glaze" frosting, but rather a thicker one and using a whole can of frosting, 3/4 c. creamy peanut butter, 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract and only 2 Tbs. milk. This made more than enough frosting to do the cake (how we like it), and I garnished it with chopped Reese's peanut butter cups. Delicious but extremely rich, the cake yields more than 10 servings, especially after a heavy roast beef dinner. I made this cake specifically for my niece, who now, after having a nut allergy for most of her life, can now, amazingly, eat most nuts, including peanuts, and she mentioned to me that she had been craving something peanut butter and chocolate. She appreciated my effort, and devoured the cake with a tall glass of ice cold milk. She even asked me for the recipe and I gladly obliged, hoping that she will make it herself at some point. Thanks for a winning recipe.
