Loved the Crumble topping

I loved the topping. However, the cake itself didn't have too much of a peanut butter flavoring. I think it would be better with more pb. Very good overall. Beware of the cake sinking in the middle however.

Great cake!!

My sixteen year old son loves Butterfingers. When I saw this recipe last year I knew he would like it for his birthday. It was such a hit that he asked for it again this year! The cake is moist and who doesn't like peanut butter and chocolate??

I had to bring a cake for work and I am usually not a huge chocolate cake fan but this cake is awesome! It did cave in at first and than it kinda puffed back out and thats when I figured it was done! This was a huge hit at work and very very moist!! love it!

Crumble-Topped Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

If you like peanut butter and chocolate, this cake is for you!! I was afraid that the cake would be dry, but it was surprisingly moist and the butterfinger topping was the best part. Very easy to make.
