Let’s start the week out with something extra delectable, shall we? A real diet breaker. A get your mind out of the Monday-gutter type of recipe.

I love bundt cakes. They are usually quite quick and easy to make. They look pretty. They feed a crowd. This cake was baked over the weekend to satisfy the cravings of a pregnant friend. Originally, I had planned to make this amazing cake found over at smitten kitchen, but time crept up on me and in a pinch, I turned to the bundt again.

As you will see, this recipes starts with a Duncan Hines Devil’s Food cake mix. Coupled with a heap of sour cream and some eggs, it is hard to screw this one up. The recipe I used called for a different kind of glaze that didn’t work out so I improvised with this thick peanut butter concoction. And, I have altered the recipe to include a lot more peanut butter cups inside. To be completely honest, I will admit that this does not rate up there with the best of the best of the best cakes in my repertoire but the ratio of ease to taste is high, which makes it a great last-minute crowd pleaser.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake
1 box Duncan Hines Devil’s Food Cake mix
16 oz. sour cream
3 large eggs
20 mini peanut butter cups

For the glaze:
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
2 Tablespoons powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the cake mix, sour cream and eggs in a bowl and beat with electric mixer on medium until fully combined, about 3-4 minutes. Grease and flour a bundt pan. Put half the batter in the pan. Cut peanut butter cups in quarters and sprinkle them over the batter. Top with remaining batter. Cook at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cake stand in pan for 10 minutes. Turn it out on a rack to cool.

For the glaze: Heat milk in a sauce pan. Whisk peanut butter in to hot milk. Whisk in powdered sugar. Put cake on rack over a sheet pan (to catch extra glaze) Drizzle the glaze over the cake and serve right after glazing.

    [...] And what does every Birthday party need? Birthday Cake of course! I scoured the internet, and out various cookbooks at home, looking for a cake to make for the day. I didn’t want anything to “party cake” looking, as neither of the Birthdayers are particularly “sweets” people. But I still wanted something delectable! Finally I came across this ‘Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake‘ over at Whipped. It looks like the perfect blend of naughtiness and simplicity that I was searching for. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    Okay, Chocolate Lovers out there; listen up! Do I have a recipe for you! This great old recipe is from the folks at Hershey’s Chocolate. Chocolate and cherries just seem to go together and this recipe is more proof of that. When you serve these tasty squares to your friends, be sure to have a copy of the recipe handy. They are sure to ask for it. Or you can be secretive, if you want, and tell them it’s one of your vintage recipes that you just don’t share. But be warned, they will be expecting you to make them anytime you get together.

    [...] A quick short post before I go off to begin and finish an assignment for Uni that is due tomorrow. I just had to let you know how well my Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake turned out. I made it yesterday for my sister and hubby’s joint birthday dinner. After some intense searching for mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups around Melbourne, note; they don’t exist, some grumpy sooking ensued, then I decided to replace the cups with peanut butter and choc bits. The result … maybe the best / most successful cake I have ever made! [...]

    Thanks for the recipe. I just made this for my husband for his bday. It looks great! Worked great in my silicon bundt pan! Glaze was not as thick as in the picture but still looks and taste great! I found the little reeses in the candy isle at my local grocery store. They were in a bag. One bag full is plenty! I had some left over to decorate around the sides of the cake! Thanks again!

  19. Tammy Says:

    Hi there… we just made this cake and it is awesome, super moist! but you mentioned you thickened up the glaze, but for some reason ours was super runny. What did you thicken it with… are the 1/2 c Milk 1/4 c Peanut butter and 2 TBLS of powdered sugar the right amounts??? ours was super thin. thanks for your response!
