Peanut Butter Bundt Cake with Chocolate Cheesecake Filling
Recipe type: Dessert
  • Filling:
  • 8ounces cream cheese
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 T cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons flour
  • Batter:
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 Tablespoon oil
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 325. Grease a bundt pan very well with floured baking spray and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together all of the filling ingredients until smooth. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer on medium speed, beat together the peanut butter, sugar, vanilla extract and eggs and baking powder until smooth and creamy.
  4. Turn the mixer to low, and add half the flour, followed by the milk, and then the remaining flour. Beat until just combined.
  5. Pour about ⅔rds of the batter into the prepared bundt pan. Pour the chocolate filling into the center of the batter. Try not to let it touch the edge. Pour the remaining batter over the chocolate filling.
  6. Bake at 325 for 60-70 minutes, until a cake tester comes out clean.
  7. Leave the cake to cool in the pan for at least a half hour before un-molding it.
  8. Once cake is fully cooled, prepare the glaze.
  9. Combine all ingredients for the glaze together in a small bowl until smooth. Drizzle over cooled cake.

  2. Shushy says

    Reese’s peanut butter cups is not only my favorite peanut butter-chocolate treat but probably one of my top five treats period!

  3. Estee Lavitt says

    Confession: I don’s like Peanut butter. My husband misses PB desserts! But I love chocolate, OXO, and King Arthur’s Flour :)

  4. Rochel says

    I loove peanut butter and anything baked with it! This is really up my alley!
    Thanks you for all your amazing recipes!

  5. Freidi says

    I don’t think I’ve ever met a chocolate peanut butter combo I didn’t love! Can’t pin it down to one….

  6. Angela Y says

    I love making my own peanut butter chocolate cups. Also, peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are amazing!

  7. says

    Thanks SO much for hosting this amazing event! I’m drooling over all the chocolate-peanut butter treats! And your cheesecake filled cake is especially enticing! YUM.

  8. deb says

    Reeces Peanut Butter Cups, everything else is just imitation :) (though I haven’t had them in almost 20 years-since I got married and started being makpid on Cholov Yisrael)

  9. says

    I love the way your mind works, Miriam. First of all, yay to you and Carla for coming up with the bestest day ever! Second, dang, this cake is all kinds of ridiculous amazingness. You came up with the list of all MY favourite things to eat and put them together into this glorious bundt. I’m in love with that tunnel of cheesecake running through the cake. Beautiful photos too!

  10. Rochel says

    I enjoy most anything with peanut butter and chocolate; peanutbutter cups, peanutbutter chocolate cookies, peanutbutter and chocolate spread sandwich…. I could go on and on, its such a good combo!

  11. Alana says

    I love making chocolate peanut butter haystacks. It is a great combination of salty and sweet. When I feel lazy and don’t want to melt the chocolate and peanut butter, I’ll take a (big) spoonful of peanut butter, lots of chocolate chips and pretzels and munch away!

  12. nechama says

    peanut butter cups/balls! yum! i also made this really delicious peanut butter choc chip pound cake. oh so yummy!

  13. says

    you got me with the chocolate cheesecake filling .. damn!!! Love this! I already love bundt cakes so much and this one is just superior awesomeness in a bundt pan. . love this! Thanks so much for organizing everything with Carla. . so much fun! can’t wait for next year! :)

  14. Rena says

    I wish it could be this cake, as soon as someone makes it for me! My husband doesn’t like peanut butter (gasp!) so this is totally not happening just for me :)

  15. says

    This is the best bundt cake I have ever seen! (And the perfect example of what a cake with a hole in the middle and icing is! 😉 ) Thank you for coordinating Chocolate Peanut Butter Day! This is one of the best food holidays I have celebrated yet!

  16. says

    I’ve always wondered how these “tunnel of whatever” cakes are made… mystery solved! I love that it’s something super-easy, too, because now I have a super-impressive dessert I can add to my arsenal.
    I mean, who wouldn’t be totally impressed when you slice into what looks like an ordinary bundt cake and then POW, hidden chocolate cheesecakey awesomeness suddenly appears? Too cool.

  17. says

    Thank you so much for putting this wonderful day together with Chocolate Moosey’s help. And this recipe? When the chocolate inside………….good grief, I’m starving now!

  18. Miri says

    This looks really good.
    Has anyone tried it with crunchy peanut butter? (It’s all I have in the house) I wonder if the texture would work..

  19. Devorie says

    I guess I’m a bit if a snob. It’s handmade truffles that I love. My favorite flavor (at the moment) is bittersweet chipolte. Heaven!

  20. says

    Miriam! We finally did it! We finally got our event together 😀 Thank you for all of your hard work. Shall we do it again next year? :) Love how you also did cheesecake for this event.
