This coffee cake was so moist and packed with flavor and goodness. Peanut butter was certainly the major ingredient to make the cake moist yet tasty. Chocolate chips and dried fruits added extra yumminess into every bite. I had two pieces for breakfast this morning with some coffee, it was so good.
