Do I have a dessert for you today!!

 

Do you like Chocolate? How about Peanut Butter? How about together in a CAKE?

I can’t take full credit for this cake, I adapted it from the King Arthur blog.

In all it’s glory, it’s made from scratch and is 4 layers high!

But I like easy.

Just because it’s easy, doesn’t mean this cake won’t knock your socks off!

Grab your aprons, and let’s get started

Buckeye Peanut Butter-Fudge Cake

Buckeye Peanut Butter-Fudge Cake

Ingredients

    Cake
  • Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
  • Peanut Butter Filling:
  • 4 cups (1-lb. box) confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • Chocolate Ganache (icing)
  • 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 6 Tbsp butter

Instructions

    Cake
  1. Mix and bake cake according to the box in 2 round cake pans. Let cool.
  2. Peanut Butter Filling
  3. Mix first 3 ingredients until well combined. Gradually add milk. It will taste as good as it sounds!
  4. Chocolate Ganache (icing)
  5. In a small saucepan, heat cream and butter until just before the boiling stage.
  6. Pour over the chocolate morsels.
  7. Stir until smooth.
  8. Put it all together
  9. I only made 2 layers, mainly because a 4 layer cake will not fit under my cake saver. But if you’d like, you can slice your 2 layers into 4 layers.
  10. Top your layer(s) with peanut butter filling.
  11. Pour warm ganache over top of cake, spread it and encourage it to dribble over the sides!

Notes

Don’t use just any chocolate cake mix, use Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix. This is THE BEST! I promise!

    So you put the peanut butter filling only in between the two layers or do you put some on the top too?

    Can't wait to try it.

    I get it know. LOL

    I would only have to put it on top of layer(s) if you have more than two layers.

    It takes me a little while, but I eventually get it. : )

    Thanks

    I made this earlier in the week, and oh my goodness. Yes, it tastes as good as it looks. Mine did not turn out looking as beautiful as Tidymom's, but wow. Really one of the easiest and best tasting cakes I've ever made. We had a few slices at home and I took the rest of the cake into work the next day. It was devoured in about 15 minutes.

    You say this is from scratch – but then have a box mix… I got all excited, but living overseas I can't get boxed mixes. Any idea how to make this without a pre-made cake mix?
    That would be great!!
