Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bundt

I love a good list. Hubby always teases me for my list making and says I should put “make list” first on the list. Sometimes he’ll steal my list and add it himself then mark it off just to mess with me.

I keep tons of lists (you guys know this from my 30-by-30 and 30-while-30 lists). Thanks to Google Drive, I can get to my lists from anywhere that I have an internet connection. One list that just keeps growing is my must-bake list. A couple years ago, I participated in a challenge to make a list of your ten top must-bake recipes. And then actually go make one. Since then, I have gone back and updated the post when I marked things off the list. So far I’ve made 7 of those 10 things that I said I wanted to make all those years ago. Not bad.

So when I read Aimee’s post about some lists of her own that she wrote, I was instantly drawn in. At the end of her post, she listed some baked goods on her must-bake list. This Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bundt caught my eye instantly. I tucked the recipe away on my list of recipes to make where it sat for a few months.

Then, I was in the mood to bake a bundt cake, so I hit up my list for some bundt recipes. I decided on this cake and wish I hadn’t let it sit on that list so long! If you like peanut butter and chocolate you’re going to love this. I especially loved that the peanut butter was the prominate flavor. Usually the peanut butter plays more of a supporting role to the chocolate in baked goods.

This bundt cake is rich and dense, like any good bundt cake should be. If you have a list of recipes you want to make, I recommend adding this one. You won’t regret it.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bundt

Ingredients:

For the Cake
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
3 cups sugar
6 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips

For the Glaze
1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Directions:

For the Cake
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray 10-cup bundt pan generously with nonstick spray.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to cream together peanut butter and butter. Add sugar and beat an additional 5 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until well combined. Add dry ingredients a little at a time, beating just until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips. Scrape batter into prepared bundt pan. Tap it a couple of times on the counter to shake out any hidden air pockets.

Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes, or until a skewer, sharp knife, or toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Check on the cake at 1 hour to make sure it's not browning too quickly on top. If it is, just place a piece of foil loosely over the top of the pan. Let the cake cool for 20 minutes, then flip it onto a rack or platter and let it cool completely.

For the Glaze
In a medium bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, milk, peanut butter and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle glaze over the top of the cooled cake, letting it drizzle down the sides. Sprinkle mini chocolate chips on top.

    What an awesome way to feature goat cheese in a dessert! I never thought of turning it into a chocolate mousse – sounds like I need to try this soon. 🙂

      You definitely should. I know goat cheese isn’t for everyone, but we really enjoyed the subtle flavor in the mousse.

    Love the idea of incorporating goat cheese in a dessert- I have never seen it down with chocolate before. I will definitely be trying this soon as I have some goat cheese in my fridge waiting to be used 🙂

      Definitely do! And you could top it with any fruit you like. I think raspberries would be good too.

    Holy yumminess. I never thought of putting goat cheese in. My mouth is watering at the thought. Strawberries are my absolute favorite berry of all time. I will have to for sure try this recipe, Got it saved to my personal file. thank you.

    I love chocolate mousse and I love goat cheese, so clearly I need to make this!

    Also, there is strawberry picking (not sure it is organic though if that matters) up here near Oxford. I can get you the info for next year if driving up here is not a problem (I imagine it depends on what side of Cinci you live 🙂 ).

    • beantownbaker — August 4th, 2013 @ 6:44 pm

      I definitely don’t mind driving for freshly picked strawberries!!

    I love absolutely EVERYTHING about this recipe! It’s hard to beat mixing tangy goat cheese with chocolate and berries. What a unique recipe!

    • beantownbaker — September 25th, 2013 @ 4:11 pm

      It tastes as good as it sounds! I hope you try it.
