Peanut butter lovers unite! This cake is so moist, and the frosting so creamy. The crunch of the peanuts on top just makes it so, so good! It's a hit at pot lucks, and I never have any left overs to bring home. Okay, I swipe a couple of pieces and hide them away for myself before I leave the house. Got to make sure the cook gets some for later. :o)
