Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake with Chocolate Glaze

Print This Recipe Print This Recipe

The first recipe I ever made with my new bundt cake pan was this peanut butter cake. It is so moist, soft, and bursting with peanut butter flavor. It reminds me of a giant peanut butter cookie, but in cake form. Each slice is quite dense and studded with chocolate chips. I love it finished off with a sweet chocolate glaze. Peanut butter and chocolate fans will go crazy for this!
