5 stars! It came out beautifully! :) Also gets 5 stars because I replaced with all whole-wheat flour and it still turned out great (few recipes do that as well as this one did!) So, here's what I did: Used whole wheat flour instead of white flour. Doubled the peanut butter to 2/3 cup. And about halved the brown sugar (1/2 cup or less) plus 1/4 cup honey. I didn't have any buttermilk, so I used regular milk. Even with all those subs, it turned out AMAZING. I know some people don't like ratings with substitutions, but I love them because it helps me alter recipes to fit my whole-wheat-only diet. :-) I found other reviewer's information very helpful and am so excited about this recipe!!! Thank you for posting it here!!! It came out moist & delicious! :-)

My peanut butter loving family is in heaven! I followed other reviews and used 2/3c peanut butter and made them into muffins. They are so moist and full of peanut butter flavor! I will be making these often, thanks!

This recipe is awesome. I took the advice of others and added another 1/3 cup of peanut butter (2/3 cup total). and only used 1/2 cup brown sugar. I didn't have any buttermilk, but just used normal milk with great results. I made it into muffins so reduced the time baking to 15 minutes at 350. Delicious!

Made this recipe yesterday EXACTLY AS WRITTEN and if I had rated it yesterday I would have given it two or three stars - edible but not great. However today the texture has improved and the flavor is better so it deserves four stars. I might rate it five stars with double the peanut butter - but since that isn't how the recipe is written I won't rate it on that.

excellent. i did put 2/3 cup of pb as suggested by others. I cooked in a 9x5 glass pan and it cooked in a little less than 1 hour. I like to slice it, heat it up and spread a little pb on top. super good and hard to resist. I only give it 4 stars because I had to change the original recipe to add more pb.

Really odd and not tasty at all. It sounded like a good idea for something different. Even slathered with jelly and pretending it was a PB and J it was, well, odd.......
