Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake for #ChocPBDay

Christmas. Birthdays. Valentines Day (because of the chocolates, of course). Now I’ve added March 25 as one of the best days of the year because it’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Day!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Day is the delicious brainchild of our fabulous hostesses, Carla of Chocolate Moosey and Miriam of Overtime Cook. This is our second year of celebrating and it’s even bigger and better than the last, with 27 incredible bloggers offering up their most tantalizing peanut butter ‘n chocolate treats.

I’ve had quite a few busts in the kitchen lately. I’m talking huge, humiliating, super epic fails. The worst was this past weekend, when I was baking for the baby shower of one of my bestest friends. We’ve known each other for 22 years (longer than the lives of some of her guests!) and I was determined to make her something glorious. I made chocolate sour cream cupcakes, which went off without a hitch. Then I made a coconut layer cake, one that I’ve made a zillion times with great success. I don’t know what the hell happened – all four of my layers were thin and rubbery. They didn’t rise, they weren’t fluffy ‘n moist – they tasted gummy and the texture was gag inducing. Sigh. Into the compost they went!

Thankfully, this bundt cake turned out beautifully! If it didn’t, I’d be crying in the corner right now, drowning my sorrows in a giant tub of peanut butter.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake (adapted from Bake or Break)

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temp
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 large eggs, room temp
1 cup buttermilk (I made mine with the juice of half a lemon and milk) or milk
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter chips (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350°. Butter/grease the heck out of a 10-cup bundt pan.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set the bowl aside.

In the bowl of your stand mixer or using a large bowl with an electric hand mixer, beat together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add the peanut butter and vanilla, beat until thoroughly combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Reduce the mixer speed to low. Add the flour mixture in three additions, alternating with two additions of milk. Mix until just combined. Add the chocolate and peanut butter chips and mix to distribute evenly.

Transfer the cake batter to the prepared pan. The batter will be thick so use the back of a spoon or a rubber spatula to smooth the top.

Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour. Start checking the bundt at 50 minutes to ensure it doesn’t over-bake. The bundt will be done when a cake tester inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Cool the bundt in pan for 15 minutes. Then, invert the pan and remove the cake from the pan to continue cooling on a wire rack.

This is one of the best cakes I’ve made in a long time. The peanut butter flavour is there but it’s not overwhelming. Personally, I love the combination of cinnamon and peanut butter – I think they compliment each other beautifully. This cake is super moist with a tight, tender crumb.

So. freaking. good.

I ate two slices then gave the rest away because if it stayed in my house, it’d be sitting on my waistline right now.

  1. One year, I had to make my mother’s birthday cake THREE TIMES. The first two efforts were a cake offering from a very famous and truly reliable blogger – one of her most famous cakes. I don’t know what happened, but it wasn’t good. Flopped in the middle, tasted of corn bread, texture that was odd and confusing. Twice. Two batches of ingredients, two rounds of baking – into the green bin. The third effort was a one bowl ditty from 1950. It was glorious. Here we are, a few years later, and I still can’t stop thinking about the cake that failed twice. WHY? WHY?!

    This isn’t really related to your post. I just needed to talk it out.

  2. Nancy, well, looks like one epic fail turns into one giant big peanut-butter-chocolate-chip-bundt-cake WIN. Damn, this thing is glorious!!! WOW!!! Wish I could have joined this year .. too much going on. . will have to live vicariously through you and this gorgeous bundt!!!

  12. There are worst things than crying in the corner with a tub of peanut butter. At least you would be with a loved one. And I’m not even going to add a smiley face because I’m not kidding.
    What a beautiful Bundt, Nancy! I’ll bet there was much oooohing and aaaahing over it at the shower! And probably some drooling. That’s why I always volunteer to cut the cake and serve.

  17. Sorry to hear about your coconut cake flop! So strange that that happened! At least this one turned out perfectly and looks delicious! Will definitely be trying this recipe😀.

  19. Kitchen woes happen to the best of us (especially when it comes to baking for me). Cheer up; this bundt certainly makes up for it, delicious:-)

  21. Busts can be such a bummer! You should see me in the kitchen trying vainly to salvage some of my messes: one of the awesome things about not having a kitchen companion is nobody can see how often I have to do all sorts of weird things (crumbling cakes, rebaking, shaping things ahem with my hands) to get my fails to work–or, more often, not work. Chin up, because this cake looks GREAT, girl! Props to you for persevering!

  23. Well if this is the result after your coconut cake fail, then I’d say you came out like a shining star!! This cake looks heavenly and stunning and I love the way you sliced it! I really didn’t know it was Chocolate Peanut Butter’s Day and wow did you deliver! Is there really anything better than peanut butter and chocolate? I have been a serious, ahem dangerous, peanut butter kick lately! I just keep making so many recipes with them and I can’t stop, haha!

  24. I think that this cake would make any baker forget about any baking fail (although coconut cake is an all-time fave of mine, so I would be crying…until I got a slice of this!!). I just love this Bundt pan and I’ve been waiting to see this cake a little closer since you posted on FB… Knowing how much everyone loves PB and choc, I bet this cake was a huge hit with your friends. I think I would be over the moon if you baked me one!! Send you hugs and hope you have a splendid weekend, sweets xx

  25. Toss up between PB and chocolate and almond butter and chocolate. But, there is no quibbling I am quite certain about the scrumptiouness of your bundt! Wish I could reach into this computer screen and take a BIG bite! Sigh. Guess I’ll just have to march myself into the kitchen =) Happy Belated PB and Chocolate Day!

  26. I’ve had some of those hard to figure out fails, many times with a lemon loaf cake that, after years and dozens of bakes, it started to sink in the middle…??!! I blamed it on the lemons, jaja
    PB and chocolate never ever fails. This cake is gorgeous Nance!

  27. LOVE that first photo of the bundt cake Nancy! It is gorgeous! There’s nothing like a truly epic bundt cake to ease the pain of an epic fail. I recently tried to make pineapple bread and it gushed over the sides of the pan, dripped giant globs of batter all over the bottom of the oven, and made the house smell like burnt fruit for daaaays. Needless to say, it’s going to be awhile before I revisit that one.
