My Aunt introduced this cake to my family, and it became a favorite. It was simple enough to make for dorm study breaks in college and was the most requested snack.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 17, 2011

I'm not sure, is the filling supposed to be non-cake or cooky-like? I wonder if my batter mixed correctly. My filling is similar to the texture of a lemon bar. The snack cakes are very tasty, with the chocolate and peanut butter. I like keeping them and eating them frozen.
