I made this fun and flavorful treat for my son's first birthday. He just turned 33, and he still has to have his favorite cake. Kids of any age have a hard time turning down peanut butter and jelly-especially when it comes tucked into cake and frosting!
This cake is so rich, you'd never guess it was lower in fat and sugar than other desserts. The smooth peanut butter layers and fudgy topping make it a hit with my family. —Crystal Christopher of Hustonville, Kentucky
This dessert has long been a favorite with my family. I especially like the fact that it requires no baking—and who doesn’t melt for the combination of peanut butter and chocolate? —Ruth Blair, Waukesha, Wisconsin
PERCH this home "tweet" home on a party table, and your event will get off to a flying start! The cute cottage from CT's cooks is a white chocolate cake with a luscious raspberry-jam layer. For extra fun, our kitchen staff added a cookie entryway, marshmallow chick and candy nest.
No one will guess that this tall, tiered cake isn't completely homemade. Chunky peanut butter is stirred into both the cake batter and the decadent chocolate ganache, giving each layer a rich, from-scratch taste. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
A year-round family favorite, the recipe for this moist layer cake was passed on to me by my mother. My grandchildren can't keep their fingers out of the icing, which tastes just like peanut butter fudge.
Meet the Cook: In our chocolate-loving house, this cake disappears very quickly! My husband and I have a 6-month-old son. We enjoy the peacefulness of country living.

When her mom was told to avoid sugar and fats, Annette Abbott got busy in Charlotte, North Carolina and whipped up this light, delectable dessert. “Mom loves indulging her sweet tooth while following doctor’s orders,” she laughs.
