    Hi Amber, I found your blog through the peanut butter boy 🙂 I just made your cake and have it in the oven! Instead of choc. chips though, I used peanut butter chips…talk about overload! Can’t wait to try it!

    Just made (and ate!) the cake…loved it!!! All my guests loved it too. Plus, my dad who has diabetes could also eat some. Thanks for the recipe!

    Oh holy moly, can I can cancel my Europe trip and go home to my oven to make this instead? 😛

    Daahhhling, I just made this cake and even made it gluten free, baking it in 3 mini fluted tube pans (becuz ya know I love bundts!). I turned out very, very well. I think this would be better with an egg (or maybe just some extra liquid to loosen the batter a bit and some extra baking powder, maybe 2 tsp??) for the gluten free version however as it didn’t rise much and was pretty dense, but most folks probably aren’t going to complain about that! 😉 I’m going to make a wheat version tomorrow and see how the two compare. My GF mix had a little sorghum flour in it, so that flavor comes through a bit. I’m even wondering how they would turn out if I subbed in a Tbsp. of almond flour for the other flours as it is like a dream in G-free baking. I love how they aren’t overly sweet, either. I even made a ganache with chocolate chips and coconut milk. Now if only I could extract the fat out of the peanut butter…
    This will be showing up on my blog in a few days for sure, so keep an eye out for the trackback!

    Hey Amber ~ This is a really lamo Q but I’m curious (now don’t laugh). Do you use roasted/salted peanuts or unsalted that aren’t roasted? I right away assumed to go for the un-roasted/unsalted but it seems to be a flippin’ scarce thing (weird, no?). Seriously, I can’t for the life of me find what I THOUGHT would be a simple thing, un-roasted/unsalted peanuts. Do these not exist? What the? I’m afraid to go with the roasted/salted…and I’m also wondering, does it reeeeally matter? 😮 Oy veeey. Just humor me and tell me, what do YOU use (?). lol
