Peanut Butter Bundt Cake

This peanut butter bundt cake with frosting is heavenly to me. I use smooth peanut butter, but crunchy would work, too. —Karen Holt, Rock Hill, South Carolina

    This cake rose beautifully! Next time, I think I'll make it in the tube pan, not the bundt pan. I used a natural peanut butter, guessed at the 1/2 cup, decided I'd put too much, so I added 1/4 cup more sugar. I also folded in 1 cup chocolate chips. I added about 3 oz cream cheese and a splash of vanilla to the frosting, then I sprinkled it with chocolate chips. It was delicious!

    Cake was great, I added chocolate chips in the cake, and also shaved some chocolate on top of the cake. Nothing is better the peanut butter and chocolate...

    This is a very good cake. I felt that it needed a bit more flavor and texture contrast, so I used chunky peanut butter instead of creamy in the cake and frosting and also sprinkled the top of the frosted cake with some mini chocolate chips and chopped peanuts. With these changes, it was perfect for my taste. This is an excellent cake for anybody who (like me) is a big-time peanut butter fan.
