    I’m surprised and sad to say that peanut butter in a flourless cake was not my favorite. It may have been because it was over cooked- it ended up being too dry. After reading so many reviews about it not being done enough, I over baked. I love PB and chocolate- it’s a magical combo but with a flourless cake, it didn’t speak to me.

    A ma zing I underbaked my cake just a little, but it was still very good. I do not have a springform pan and I was not worried about the presentation (made it for me - wasn’t worried about impressing anyone else😬), so I lined a round ceramic baking dish with wax paper and carefully extracted the cake when done. If I had a springform, I think it would have baked more evenly throughout. The edge of the cake was perfectly done, with a light, fluffy texture. The middle is a little more gooey, but like a lovely thick chocolate sauce, not like an underbaked dough. I have been expecting a sugar coma to set in, but it hasn’t - leading me to wonder if it is the flour or other refined carbs in baked goods that always makes me so sleepy! Small slices of this cake are all it takes to satisfy - no need to overdo at all. Will make again. Ten out of ten recommend

    It is a good recipe. It is not too sweet. I put it in 10 more minutes as 30 mins isn’t enough.

    Beautiful and delicious! Takes more than an hour with cooling time before topping with the ganache, but hands on time is really straightforward.

    Perfect made it for girlfriends birthday. Only thing I changed was made it larger to fit in my springform pan

    It was so good! Very rich so my little guy didn't really like it but everybody else did. I only had a round cake pan so I was worried it wouldn't cook right. I cooked it for 30 minutes with no problems. I thought the middle would be gooey but once it was completely cooled it set nicely.

    Awesome. I made it for my 34-year-old daughter’s birthday cake. Really rich, and really decadent. Chocolate peanut butter or two of her favourite things, and she took the leftover cake home. Don’t forget to add the water to the oven, as it really did prevent keep from cracking. Turned out lovely!!!

    What attracted me to this was that it was gluten free. What has me writing a review was that it was so decadent and creamy and wonderful that I want to keep making it again and again!

    Very good, relatively easy, seemed like a lot of steps though. The only thing I would suggest is giving it extra time to chill in the fridge with the ganache. The ganache recipe called for quit a bit more peanut butter than needed. Turned out excellent.
