Line the bottom of each ramekin with a parchment paper round, and spray again.
Divide chocolate-pecan streusel among the ramekins.
Top each with approximately 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons peanut butter filling.
Fill ramekins three-quarters full with batter.
Place ramekins on 2 sheet pans.
Bake, switching position of pans halfway through, until cakes begin to pull away from sides of ramekins, 20 to 25 minutes.
Cool cakes on pans for 20 minutes.
Carefully invert ramekins onto each serving plate.
Serve with vanilla ice cream.
