Peanut Butter Chip Bundt Cake

I've been on a bit of an American baking spree lately. Probably due to the fact that I unpacked my box which contained all the goodies that I brought back from America last year. I decided to make a simple peanut butter chip bundt cake as I wanted to use my peanut butter topping as a drizzle. I have been patiently waiting for the right moment to open this bottle of peanut butter goodness. If you've not tasted it before, you really have to get yours hands on one as it's divine. Its basically like smooth, melted peanut butter. It worked really well as a topping to the cake. I had extra on my slice :) The cake itself was light and tasty and the peanut butter chips gave the cake a 'sweet and salty' taste which everyone enjoyed.

  1. YUM! I'm loving all your American you can imagine! I haven't seen this sauce here in Canada...booo, but when we lived in the Caribbean we used to buy it and every day when I got in from work we'd make vanilla ice cream cones and add this sauce on top and walk to the beach eating it! so it holds very good memories for me indeed! I love the fact it's a peanut butter whammy with the chips and the sauce!

    1. I knew you'd love the American bakes :) I am totally in love with this sauce and am trying to organise another trip to America so I can stock up! :)

  2. WOW!!! This looks amazing and oh so easy. I love the light and dark colour of the cake and pattern caused by your bundt pan.
    The texture looks really moist too.


    1. Thanks! If you have the ingredients to hand, do give it a go - it's well worth it x

  3. Delicious! That sauce and peanut bunnet chips look fantastic, wish they sold them here

    1. I think you can get the chips here but not seen the sauce anywhere.

  4. YUM! This look so yummy & inviting ! ;)

  5. This looks tasty - I've never even heard of peanut butter topping, but it certainly adds a great touch to the cake! :)

  6. You know how I've never really been a HUGE fan of PB well guess what LATELY I have been converted hahaha and now I really like PB desserts maybe not spread on my toast but definitely PB Cakes! So I'm sure I'd love this one!

    1. I'm trying to convert you to PB and I know you're trying to convert me to coconut!

  7. Sounds amazing! I am peanut butter mad now when it comes to baking, those chips look fab, definitely on my shopping list for my next American goodies haul!

    1. If you like peanut butter definitely grab a few bags of these chips - you can use them in cakes or cookies.
