This is a great peanut butter cake with peanut butter icing. Ideal for the true peanut butter fan.
Although the peanut butter taste was exceptional, the cake was not ... way too dry. If I were to try it again I would try adding salad oil or yogurt to give it some moisture. - 04 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
1 cup of milk to 1 lb confectionery sugar is too much. Use about 1/4 cup of milk to get a creamy spreadable frosting. Mix peanut butter with confectionery sugar than add as much milk to make creamy instead of alternating - 07 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I followed the recipe exactly. The cake was extremely dense, thick and somewhat dry tasting. It was tolerable but I would not make it again. My whole family loves peanut butter so I assumed this would be a real winner but it was not. - 21 May 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
