Peanutty Chocolate Cake

Another offering from Victoria Smith features the smoothness of chocolate and the crunch of peanuts in a delightful cake. Layering the ingredients makes for an interesting texture and a pretty slice.
  • 1 (18 oz.) pkg. yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 c. water
  • 1/3 c. vegetable oil
  • 1 c. chopped unsalted peanuts, divided
  • 1 c. chocolate chips, divided

Combine the cake mix, peanut butter, eggs, water, and oil in a large bowl. Beat on medium speed of a blender for 3 minutes. Pour one-third of the batter into a 12-cup microproof bundt pan.

Sprinkle 1/3 cup each of the peanuts and chocolate chips over the batter. Carefully pour another one-third of the batter over the peanuts and chocolate chips. Sprinkle another 1/3 cup each of the peanuts and chocolate chips over the batter. Repeat with the remaining batter, peanuts and chocolate chips. Microwave at the medium-high setting for 15-16 minutes.

Let the cake stand for 10 minutes before inventing onto a serving platter. Spoon warm Caramel Glaze (recipe below) over the cake and let it cool completely.
