Once I find a recipe that I want to try I look for any reason to make it! So when my bosses 25th Anniversary with the company came up I knew that I needed to make this Coffee Cake! It was a must! It was a wonderfully moist coffee cake, but I wish that the peanut butter flavor had come out just a little more. Everyone in the office LOVED it and I had no complaints from them! I will try this again - I think I want to try a Nutella version!
