I was looking for a peanut butter bread/cake recipe that reminded me of the same cake I used to eat as a good at my elementary school in L.A. back in the 80s. I was sooo pleased with this recipe. It was not as great as the one at my school but it was pretty darn close. The one I was looking for did bot have a topping but this topping was extremely good. I would recommend this recipe and I plan on making it again. Also, I preferred it cold rather than straight out of the oven. Happy baking!!


Funny story, my friend and I were looking for a recipe that was reminiscent of the peanut butter cake they used to serve in the LA school district in the 80s. I come across this one, read the first review and breakfastbelle also tried this recipe for the same reason! I agree with her that it is not exactly the same, but it is delicious in its own way. I halved the recipe (baked for 20 min in a 9x9 pan) not knowing if I would like it and I wished I would have just made the whole recipe. It is sooo good, moist and just perfectly flavored. The only thing I changed was added a handful of crushed peanuts to the topping just like they did in the elementary school cafeteria.


Fantastic! I used creamy peanut butter in the cake, and also added four bananas, then used crunch peanut butter for the topping. YUM!
