Kandy Kakes from Scratch

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by JPsBarbie

This is my homemade version of TastyKakes' Kandy Kakes. Using the extra chunky peanut butter is a must when I make them for the kids.

Excellent recipe - only things I did differently (personal preferences), I used freshly ground peanut butter from a local grocery store (dry roasted and not oily) and a mix of Hershey's special dark and Hershey milk chocolate bars - very yummy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix eggs until nice and yellow then continue mixing in the the remaining cake ingredients. Pour into a 15 x 2 pan and bake for about 15 minutes or until tests done.
  3. Immediately after removing from oven spread the 1 1/3 cup of peanut butter over hot cake. (I don't actually measure the peanut butter, I just use enough to give the cake a nice even layer.) Put aside and let cool. If I'm in a hurry I put it in the fridge to speed things up.
  4. When cake is cool but NOT cold melt the tablespoon of peanut butter along with the milk chocolate in the microwave,about 1 - 1.5 minutes. Spread over cake and cool completely before cutting.
