This famously delicious pair does it again in our recipe for Peanut Butter Cup Cake. We've filled this impressive bundt cake with chunks of chocolate, peanut butter candy for extra-yummy bites!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (15.25-ounce) package devil's food cake mix
  • 1 (4-serving) package instant chocolate pudding and pie filling
  • 1 cup (1/2 pint) sour cream
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 30 miniature milk chocolate peanut butter cup candies, chopped

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease a 10-inch Bundt pan.
  2. In a large bowl, with an electric beater, combine all ingredients except the crushed candies; mix well then stir in the crushed candies and mix well.
  3. Pour into prepared Bundt pan and bake 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. Cool cake slightly, about 15 minutes. Remove cake from pan and continue to cool thoroughly on a wire cooling rack.

Nest cake I have eaten in forever! It was nicely moist and chocolatey. I made it for my daughter's birthday on Valentine's day so added mini chocolate peanut butter cups shaped like hearts on top of the drizzle. The drizzle was a little thick so will add more evaporated milk next time. I will definitely make this again. So Good

I love Peanut butter cups and cakes. I am so goimg to make this.

I'm not sure I want to waste so many reeses peanut butter cups and not Like It So I just don't know about this one 3 O) 3

Great texture,taste is not exceptional. When the effort and expense of the ingredients are factored in,I rate this as somewhat of a disapointment not likely to be repeated.

One more dumb question/comment. I can not find an 18.25 oz. Devils Food cake mix. They range from 15.25--16.50.

Hi there! We've gone ahead and updated the recipe to include the new cake mix box sizes. Enjoy!

Are the peanut butter cups chopped or crushed? Also,a full cup of oil?

Hi there Hewett! The peanut butter cups should be chopped, and you should use a full cup of oil. Enjoy!

I've made this a few times now. Love it ! Have even switched the peanut butter cups to Rollos. I don't do a drizzle ....I make ganache' to top it. Wonderful !

Super moist cake. I did not use the peanut butter glaze, but a powdered sugar milk glaze. Everyone loved it!

Is it possible to substitute a cup of yogurt for the sour cream in any of these pound cakes? I just never developed a taste for sour cream.

I think Greek yogurt is a good substitute for sour cream.

Made this for Mother's Day this past Sunday. I used 1/2 of a container of Dark Chocolate Frosting, softened in the microwave for 30 seconds, with 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter for the frosting. It's more susbtantial than a "drizzle" and was just yummy good!

I'm trying it today for my grandson's birthday......sounds like it will be a favorite....WITH EVERYONE!!!

Bacon Corn Bread

When you make this, you can tell the family you're bakin' bacon corn bread. They're gonna think you're repeating yourself and that you're makin' Bacon Bacon Corn Bread...but that's okay. One slice and they'll agree that it's doubly good!
