Ingredients for Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake with Peanut Butter Glaze

If you are someone who bakes regularly, there’s a really good chance you have all of the ingredients on hand.

  • Sugar
  • Butter
  • Eggs
  • Flour
  • Buttermilk
  • Peanut Butter Chips
  • Cocoa
  • Baking Powder 
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Confectioners’ Sugar
  • Creamy Peanut Butter
  • Milk

What can I substitute for buttermilk?

There really is no substitute but you can easily make it. Combine milk and either white vinegar OR lemon juice. 

To save yourself a trip to the store, put 1 Tablespoon of the white vinegar OR lemon juice in a measuring cup. Using the milk fill to the one cup line. Gently stir the mixture and let it sit for 5 minutes…use a timer! This will allow the milk to curdle slightly, giving it a buttermilk texture and taste.

Even though my family does not have the same affection for peanut butter, they like it but don’t love it, I do make recipes using the two ingredients often.

Mini peanut butter filled cupcakes and peanut butter truffle cookies, which are gluten-free, are favorites. This chocolate peanut butter Bundt cake with peanut butter glaze is a peanut butter lover’s dream dessert.

The cake is made from scratch and has peanut butter chips in the batter. I found the recipe in my Mom’s recipe box but I added the peanut butter glaze.

Tips and Substitutions

  • Don’t skip greasing the Bundt pan. This step is a necessity if you want it to come out in one piece.
  • If you’re short on time you can skip the glaze and finish the cake with a simple dusting of powdered sugar.
  • No peanut butter chips? You can certainly substitute chocoalte chips. I would suggest semi-sweet.

Chocolate peanut butter Bundt cake with peanut butter glaze is a rich chocolate cake studded with peanut butter chips and topped with an amazing glaze. It’s sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.

The glaze would also be delicious on cupcakes or drizzled over a chocolate or peanut butter cookie. I’ve even used it on homemade donuts and topping homemade cinnamon rolls with it would be delicious too.

I love recipes that come together as easy as this one does. It’s perfect for a weeknight dessert, for a potluck or tailgate party on game day and impressive enough for a dinner party.

My family loves chocolate and peanut butter and they will love this. I believe I'm going to need to start a new board on Pinterest for your recipes so I can find them easily. I look forward to those breakfast recipes you mentioned too!
