I chose this particular recipe because of the added oil. I know that peanut butter cake has a tendency to be dry. The oil did produce a moist cake however, this recipe has some problems. First of all, this is a recipe that produces TWO 9 inch round pans. If I had used all that batter for an 8 inch pan I would have had a major mess. Secondly, I added 2 additional tablespoons of peanut butter for more peanut flavor. I also decreased the vanilla and only used 2 teaspoons. The batter was incredibly thin so I also added another 1/2 cup flour. I was pleased with the final product but it certainly took innovation.

I found this cake to be very bland. It was nothing special to say the least. I doubled the peanut butter in the cake, however, I could still just barely taste it! Perhaps it was so bland because I didn't make the glaze. In general, my family finds that frosting or glaze overwhelms a dessert and makes it too sweet, but perhaps with this cake, the glaze is just what it needs.

With many modifications, it turned out fabulously. but it would have been horrible if I hadn't changed so much.

This cake was very good. I was impressed with the outcome, a moist and delicious sweet cake. I thought that with the amount of sugar, it would be too sweet, but it proved me wrong. Although I doubled the amount of peanut butter, the recipe worked perfectly for me.

Ok so I'm not sure if I did something wrong or what. I followed the recipe abd the cake has been in the oven for almost 45 minutes and it's not cooking the whole way through....any ideas?
