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.
