Mini Chocolate Bundt Cakes with Peanut Butter Filling

Dessert gets mini-sized with Mini Chocolate Bundt Cakes with Peanut Butter Filling.

This month marks Bake or Break’s first birthday! In this inaugural year, I’ve made 18 different kinds of cookies, 8 kinds of brownies, 13 cakes, and various other things totaling almost 100 different recipes. Thanks to everyone for reading my ramblings and sharing your comments. Now, on with the next cake…

For Fathers’ Day, I obviously wanted to make something that my Daddy would love. Knowing his enormous love of peanut butter, I went in search of a recipe with plenty of peanut butter. Surprisingly, I had a bit of a hard time finding one that sounded just right. After a while, I found these mini bundt cakes. Chocolate and peanut butter being one of the best combinations known to man, I was excited to make these little cakes. Of course, I convinced myself that I needed a second mini bundt pan to make life easier. So, I was also excited to go buy that mini bundt pan I’ve had my eye on.

My only word of caution for making these has to do with the mini bundt pans. Make sure you spray/grease them generously. Cleaning those up was tedious to say the least. There will actually need to be some time and space before I get those pans out again. Of course, I’m not likely the only one who enjoys the baking far more than the cleaning.

These are great little cakes for serving a crowd. When it comes time for dessert, there’s no slicing and doling out. Everyone just gets their own pretty little cake. I did wait to add the glaze until right before serving, but that was simple enough. My opposition to cleaning aside, this proved to be a good recipe that everyone really liked. I worried about the size of each one being too much for one person, but judging by the cleaned plates that clearly wasn’t an issue.

  • 4 ounces (113g) melted unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For the glaze:

  4. Reduce mixer speed to low. Gradually add the flour mixture, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the flour mixture. Mix just until combined.
  5. Fill each prepared Bundt tin 1/2 full. Scatter some peanut butter chips around the center of the batter. Pour the remaining batter over the peanut butter chips.
  6. Bake 18-20 minutes. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Then, remove the cakes from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack.

To make the glaze:

    Those little bundt cakes look delish. PB & chocolate is one of my favorite combinations.

  6. These look gorgeous! Like all men, my husband would love the choco-peanut butter combination.

  7. These mini-cakes are delicious if you like a hint of peanuts. Peanut chips are peanut butter, way toned down. I like the peanut butter itself with cream cheese, milk and other additives. The chips seem to fall short, though.
