Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Glazed Bundt Cake – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Remember when Bundt Cakes were all the rage?  I think it was in the 80’s where every household had a bundt cake on the kitchen counter.  Nowadays, I see a few bakeries that are trying to revive the Bundt Cake and I say, “Bravo to you.”

I love the shape of a Bundt Cake and that they are a little easier to prepare than a layer cake.  You don’t need a filling to go between the layers of cake, but with a Bundt you get just as much flavor from the intense moisture and rich taste.  I’m sure you will love this recipe because of the chocolate peanut butter combination and you can reminisce Bundt Cakes!

3/4 cup cocoa powder, I prefer Valrhona

9.  Place the cake into the oven to bake for 1 hour and 10-20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Remove the cake from the oven and let cool for 30 minutes. Loosen the cake with a butter knife around the perimeter and inside cone area to release and turn upside down onto your favorite cake stand or plate.

11.  Whisk in the vanilla extract, then slowly drizzle in the buttermilk until you have an easy to pour glaze.  Do not add too much buttermilk, because you can’t take it out!  If by chance the consistency is a little thin, add another tablespoon of confectioners sugar.
