Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake with Sweet Peanut Butter Icing

This is such a fun cake to whip up for so many occasions. It’s perfect for summer picnics, family gatherings, birthday parties, you name it! NO one will ever guess it starts with a cake mix. Trust me. If you plan on taking this cake to a party, take the icing packaged separately and drizzle in front of your guests, more dramatic that way ๐Ÿ™‚

You’ll love this one, enjoy!! xoxo


Here’s your line up. Nice and easy for ya!

Let’s start with the cake batter shall we?

1 box of chocolate pudding mix.

4 large beautiful eggs.

Heavy cream or milk will do ๐Ÿ™‚

A little oil and sour cream.

Peanut Butter! Now…please note, you can leave the peanut butter out if you’d like just a fabulous chocolate bundt. You can even add some chocolate chips that would be delish.

Do not be alarmed, your batter will be very thick.

Place it right into your bundt pan.

Spread it nice and even, then time to bake!

Ahhhh, there it is, baked and perfect! Let this baby cool.

This icing is completely deadly. I wanted to swim in the darn stuff ๐Ÿ™‚

Shortly before serving, drizzle that perfect icing right on top.

It will drip down the sides, but no worries, more to dip your cake slices into.

Bundt cake perfect-0!

I may have gotten carried away with the photos here, lol!

Well, more to drool at right? Enjoy!

    Ok, this is in my oven baking as I type. It smells heavenly!! I’m bringing it to a family gathering tomorrow. I have a question. How is the icing the 2nd day? Can I make up the icing today and just pour it on at the party or should I make it tomorrow when I’m at the party? Thanks for your help.

    What a huge disappointment!!! Looks so good tastes like… Well nothing. This is the most flavorless cake I’ve ever made/eaten. I made it as she suggested even added the chocolate chips and I am shocked how something with so many tasty components can turn out to have no flavor. I love to bake and do it all the time so am stunned how tasteless this is. I keep taking bites hoping for flavor but still nothing. I would have been better off making the cake according to its directions and putting some canned frosting on top. Which to me is a no no. I’m embarrassed to take this any where. HUGE WAST OF TIME CALORIES AND MONEY!!!!

    recipe for chocolate peanut butter bundt cake calls for a small can of condensed milk for the frosting. How many ounces is this? What is a small can? Sorry.

    I’ve made this recipe multiple times and I get the highest praises each time I make it. In fact, friends and family request this cake all the time ๐Ÿ™‚ The key to the icing is making sure you use enough peanut butter to make the icing thicker to drizzle. I also top the icing with chocolate chips…can’t have enough chocolate.
    Also – do not substitute regular peanut butter for chunky – chunky changes the consistency and it does NOT work!
    Enjoy – this is one of our favorites!
