Attention Peanut Butter Lovers: Peanut Butter Coffee Cake!

Peanut butter is my favorite.  Reeses, peanut butter cookies, peanut butter and jelly, peanut butter and peanut butter.  You get the idea.  So what could be better in the morning than a slice of peanut butter coffee cake?  It's not too sweet so it's perfect in the morning along side a cup of coffee.  Or in my case a Diet Coke!
