"Made this for a luncheon on Monday. Yellow cake part Ok but not the best a little dense. Watched closely while baking. Also found the peanut butter dominated could hardly taste any chocolate. So all in all just average wouldn't make on a regular basis."

"Easy and delicious. I dropped spoonful peanut butter on warm cake as others had suggested and used dark chocolate candy. It turned out beautifully. I will be making this again."

"This recipes sounds great - has anyone tried it as a jelly roll? If not feasible I'll certainly make it as shown, can't wait! (PS there should really be a place we can ask questions without having to rate the recipe we haven't made yet because doing so simply skews the rating. Just a suggestion!)"
