Reviews for Fudgy Peanut Butter Cake
"absolutely horrible. It smelled & tasted very odd."
"Very good recipe, it worked well and the kids loved it. I would have liked a stronger peanut butter taste but that's me, maybe I will add some more PB next time. Whipped cream because we didn't have icecream, very good!"
"This was a delicious cake and so easy. Never made any cakes in a crock pot but this was very good."
"I made 1-1/2 recipe because my crock pot is larger than 1-1/2 qts. I used more peanut butter, but it still did not have a strong enough peanut butter taste. We all agreed that this was just okay. I will not make it again."
"This is fantastic! I followed the recipe, and it was a big hit. I'll definitely be making this again; it's the perfect dessert size for two adults and a kiddo on a busy week night!"
"I just LOVED this but it just made a tiny, tiny bit. I think it is made in a little bitty crock pot. Is that correct? What do I need to do to increase the recipe?"
"This makes a great dessert warm with ice cream yummyyy"
"I must have done something wrong....It smelled really good and toothpick came out clean, however when I went to cut into it; it was all soupy on the bottom...is that the way it's supposed to be? I cooked it in my mini (1qt) crock and it only has 1 setting for 2 hours....maybe that was the problem. I will have to try it again because what we did it was nummy!"
"So easy and so yummy! I love that I can put the kids to bed and my husband and I can enjoy this together. I have a larger crock pot (5 or 6 qts?). I 1 and 1/2 the recipe and it worked great. I also added a small handful of chocolate chips and added them between the two layers. There was a lot of melty chocolate, but that is the point, right? This is definitely on my do-again list :)"
"Could this be baked in an oven?"
"I've made this recipe since it came out in the mag . . . absolutely easy and delicious. Makes just enough for my family of four."
"This is nice !!"
"Very tasty! Peanut butter flavor is mild but it's a warm, gooey cake. Who can resist? I realized my crock pot was going to be too large for the recipe so I made it in the oven set at 200-225 degrees for about 2 hours. Topped with whipped cream, it was delicious! Next time, I would add more peanut butter to increase the PB flavor."
