Chocolate. Peanut Butter. Mmmm… goooooooood. Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake … beyond words.
We make the cake part of this all the time. We even make this cake with the wonderful chocolate ganache in the middle, but what I have never done before, was add the peanut butter, and I really wanted the peanut butter.
Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake is honestly to die for!
Now before you sit there thinking, where’s the icing or the topping or the glaze, there is a reason I didn’t add it with this particular cake.
The chocolate cake is extremely rich and moist all on it’s own – then you have the bites full of peanut butter and the chocolate ganache. It needs no help from any glaze or icing or frosting or ANYTHING. It’s the perfect Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake.
I’ve been eating much healthier lately, so this cake was a nice little treat to end my week and I enjoyed it with a big mug of hot steaming coffee and some TV time with my girls. (and my boy but he wasn’t watching, he was Facebooking). Oh, and in case you were wondering – there is NOTHING healthy about this cake, but one bite and I’m pretty sure it won’t matter.
Hey, I went over my calorie limit for this piece of cake. You would too.
Also, I used Reese’s peanut butter and reese’s peanut butter chips but you can use whatever you want. I basically used them because I had originally planned to crumble reese’s peanut butter cups across the top held firmly in place by chocolate ganache. I decided not to do that at the last minute, so it’s up to you whether you want to do that.
This week our Sunday Supper theme is Cheese, Cakes & Cheesecakes and is hosted by my awesome friend Angie from Big Bear’s Wife. Thank you so much Angie for organizing such a fun theme and for all the work you did!
Enjoy the cake and make sure you check out the wonderful recipes everyone else contributed this week.
Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake
For Ganache Filling
- 3oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1 tbsp powdered sugar
- 2 c. sugar
- 1 3/4 c. cake flour
- 3/4 c. dark cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 c. milk
- 1/2 c. applesauce
- 1 1/2 tsp. almond extract (we also sometimes use rum extract or other flavors - its very mild)
- 1 c. boiling water
- 1 1/2 cups Reese's Peanut Butter Chips
- 1 c. Reese's Peanut Butter (you can use any kind, really)
- Make sure all ingredients are brought to room temperature.
- In a microwave safe bowl, put all the ingredients for the ganache filling. Heat on high for 20 to 30 seconds. Whisk until melted and smooth. Refrigerate while you are working on the rest of the cake.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Grease your bundt pan and then dust with cocoa powder. Tap out any excess.
- In a large bowl, mix the sugar, cake flour, dark cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- Add the eggs, milk, applesauce and almond extract; beat on medium for 2 minutes.
- Next, stir in the boiling water. Stir until moistened.
- Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the Reese's Peanut Butter Chips.
- Pour the batter into your prepared pan.
- Begin by dropping spoonfulls of the chocolate ganache filling into the batter in the bundt pan all around. Next, repeat the same thing with the cup of peanut butter. Gently take a knife and swirl it through the cake batter swirling the peanut butter and ganache. Try to cover and visible ganache or peanut butter with the batter.
- Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out with only a few moist crumbs attached to it, about 30-35 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let the cake cool upright in the pan for 15 minutes. Invert the pan onto the rack and lift off the pan. Allow to cool about 15-20 minutes longer before slicing and devouring. So good!
