Bundt cakes are seriously my favorite type of cake to bake and I’ve made tons of them over the years. There are a lot of bundt cake recipes here on my blog. I like big bundts and I cannot lie. Sorry, that was a terrible joke, but I couldn’t help myself. They are a more dense cake so they tend to not dry out so easily. You also don’t have to mess with all the layers!

Peanut Butter Bundt Cake is THE cake for peanut butter lovers like you and me. Would you believe my mother-in-law doesn’t like peanut butter? She says it gives her heartburn. I would say – bring on the heartburn! Just like anything dairy bothers my stomach, I still choose to eat it because it’s worth it.

It’s ALL about the peanut butter here when it comes to the glaze. It complements the chocolate chip bundt cake so well. As a lifelong peanut butter fan, that gets me pretty excited about holiday dessert! I mean, what is better to top a chocolate chip bundt cake than a peanut butter glaze? It’s seriously quick and easy to make but looks so impressive.

In this recipe, the cake is topped with an amazing peanut butter ganache that is to die for. The ganache uses peanut butter chips, heavy whipping  cream, and good-quality peanut butter. The good-quality peanut butter gives the ganache that perfect peanut butter taste.

This Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake is really the ideal recipe for the holidays, Valentine’s, Mother’s day, baby and bridal showers or just because! Bundt cake recipes are some of my favorites, they always seem to come out more moist, and are certainly easier than a layered cake!

Tip: For optimal results, use a regular peanut butter like Jif, Peanut Pan or Skippy and NOT a natural peanut butter which tends to be oily and can effect the texture. The texture and composition usually don’t perform quite the same way in most recipes when using natural peanut butter. You’ll definitely have more success using regular peanut butter.

How to easily get a cake to come out of the bundt pan:

Greasing the pan appropriately with shortening AND flour. I have found this help so much of all methods I have tried.
Start by spreading a very thin layer of shortening all over the pan. Make sure the layer is thin. Make sure the entire pan is covered evenly, in a thin layer, and my hands stay clean.

Next, grab a pinch of flour and dust it over the pan over the shortening layer. Hold the pan over the sink and tap it hard, in a circular motion, all around the edges so that the flour evenly lightly covers the pan.
The cake will come out of the pan without sticking every single time!
