I found this in an old Better Homes and Garden cookbook. It has proven to be a family favorite.
We eat it when it first comes out of the oven with milk. The perfect after school snack. It also makes a great dinner dessert or bunch type coffee cake. It is a full flavored peanut butter cake without the extra frosting, (just a crumble topping). My kids love it. It doesn't last long plus it's a breeze to make. I think it will become a favorite at your house as well.

So I wanted to make sure I had the ingredients right and I pulled up Better Homes and Gardens site and was going to google to see if they had the cake and they actually have pulled this cake up to the present again as one of their front runner cakes and the ingredients are right so it is accurate. I think it once again that you baked it as cupcakes.

I might also add thinking about it again.... since it is supposed to be a coffee cake... making it as a cupcake would really make it on the drier side. I'm very sorry you didn't like it. It has been a staple in our home for years with all of my kids eating it after school with milk. It's the perfect snack but I don't think I would ever try it as a cupcake. It would ruin it.

Or perhaps you just didn't like it. I have never had anyone not like it. Even Candy loved it. It is meant to be eaten as a coffee cake not as a cake cake. It is a drier sort of cake if you will so if you made it as a cupcake, you really screwed up.
