Swirled Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake Recipe

Since chocolate and peanut butter are two of my granddaughters' favorite flavors, I fix this cake often. It's moist and scrumptious.—Elaine Medeiros, Wamego, Kansas

MY REVIEW

I baked this cake the same way as jbab, 1/2 the cake part in an 8X8 inch pan, original recipe proportions for the filling. It was great, very easy too! If I bake the cake with the full recipe (for a 13 X9 inch pan) I will double the filling recipe

Great cake! I made in an 8x8 pan, cutting the cake ingredients in half and making the filling as stated because I wanted to try it out and there's only 2 of us. Came out great! Will definitely make again using the entire recipe.

MY REVIEW

Very good! This is a super simple and moist cake. I love the fact that you don't have to frost it because peanut butter filling is baked in the cake. The only problem I had was that the peanut butter mixture sort-of slid to the middle of the cake and the edge pieces ended up not having much of the filling. I don't know if this can be prevented, but let me know if anyone has a suggestion to correct this problem. When mixing up the peanut butter filling, I just stirred it all together with a rubber spatula in a bowl, no mixer is needed; just be sure to have your cream cheese pretty soft. Overall, very moist and delicious, quick and easy, I will make again.
