Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake

Made this cake for Pap’s birthday last week. Bundt cakes are his favorite because that’s what kind my mom always used to make for him, so I did my best to do the same and I think it was delicious. There’s a few steps involved, but it’s not too complicated. The peanut butter filling layer is my favorite part!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake


  • 1 standard size chocolate cake mix  
  • 1 package (3.9 oz. – 4 Serving Size) chocolate pudding – DRY MIX  
  • 1 cup sour cream  
  • 1 cup vegetable oil  
  • 4 eggs  
  • 1/2 cup warm water  
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips (optional)  


  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter 
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar 
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt 

GLAZE (you can make chocolate, peanut butter or both) 

For Chocolate Glaze: 

  • 2/3 cup chopped chocolate (semi-sweet or milk chocolate work well)  
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream  

For Peanut Butter Glaze: 

  • 2/3 cup peanut butter chips 
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream  

For cake:  
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  

2. Combine all of the cake ingredients and mix with a mixer until combined. Do not over mix, but make sure all dry ingredients and wet ingredients are well combined. Set aside. 

3. In a separate bowl, combine peanut butter, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and salt and mix well with a mixer.  

4. Spoon half of cake batter into a bundt cake pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Spoon peanut butter filling on top of the cake batter. Top with remaining cake batter.  

5. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack. Remove from bundt pan and top with powdered sugar or chocolate and peanut butter glaze if desired.   

For glaze(s):  
In a large microwave safe bowl (glass works best) combine chopped chocolate (or peanut butter chips) and heavy cream. Microwave for 30 seconds, remove from microwave and stir well. Return to microwave for another 15 seconds. Remove from microwave and whisk together until smooth (stirring will help melt chocolate). If needed, heat for an additional 15 seconds, then whisk until smooth. Spoon or pour over cake.
