Semi Homemade Bundt Cake

We call this cake semi-homemade. We love taking versatile box cake mixes and turning them into something a little special. Something that no one would believe had its origins in a box.

The recipe starts with a box yellow cake mix with extra pudding added for the ultimate in softness. Sour cream helps to keep the texture moist and rich.

Yellow cake mix adds to the buttery flavor of the cake. But want extra chocolate flavor? Use a chocolate cake mix. Double chocolate goodness!

How to Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Prepare bundt pan by greasing with shortening and dust with flour. Or use our cake release recipe.

  • Make the glaze. In a medium bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons of milk, peanut butter and vanilla. Add another tablespoon or two of milk if needed to get the glaze to a drizzling consistency.
  • Drizzle glaze over top of the cake. Finish by sprinkling ¼ cup mini chocolate chips over the glaze.
  • Store in an airtight container.

Peanut Butter Glaze

And to top this bundt cake recipe off? A drizzle of peanut butter powdered sugar glaze. It’s super simple to make. Simply whisk together powdered sugar, milk, peanut butter and vanilla. Add as much milk as you’d like for the consistency of glaze you’d like.

Top off with a sprinkling of mini chocolate chips or even crushed peanuts or sprinkles. If you choose to sprinkle something on top, remember to do it right after you drizzle the glaze on. If the glaze sets, it won’t hold a topping.
