The BEST cake Ever!!! Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Glaze

So I am not really a cake fan, nor really a chocolate cake fan, but this cake hits the spot!! and it is so delicious and so easy!! It is a Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Glaze!! yum!!!

Last night we had some friends from the ward over for dessert and I had been wanting to try this cake, so Bella and I made it.  I forgot to take pics last night, but here are a couple from this morning!!

Okay, here is the recipe!

1 package chocolate cake mix (I used triple chocolate fudge)
1 (5.9 oz) package instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup sour cream
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups peanut butter chips

Directions: preheat over to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix together the cake and pudding mixes, sour cream, oil, beaten eggs and water.  Stir in the peanut butter chips and pour batter into a well-greased 12 cup bundt pan.  
Bake for 45-5 minutes, or until top is springy to the touch and a wooden toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Cool cake thoroughly in the pan at least 1 hour and a half before inverting onto a plate.  While cake is cooling, make frosting and peanut butter glaze.  Frost the cake with frosting and then drizzle with glaze.  Heat up the glaze slightly to accomplish a great drizzle.

Peanut Butter Glaze: (I doubled this recipe)
4 teaspoons water
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon peanut butter

Mix well and drizzle over frosted cake

Chocolate Frosting: ( I double this recipe, and it is the best chocolate frosting I have ever had, and frosting, to me, is the worst part of the cake)


2 3/4 cups confectioner's sugar
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
6 tablespoons butter
5 tablespoons evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a medium bowl, sift together the confectioner's sugar and cocoa and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butter until smooth, then gradually beat in sugar mixture alternately with the evaporated milk.  Blend in vanilla. Beat until light and fluffy.  If necessary, adjust consistency with more milk or sugar!!!!

and voila!! you have a delicious dessert!! we served with vanilla bean ice cream~~ delicious!!
