Questions & Replies

  1. Easier way to make frosting?
  2. Can this peanut butter bundt cake go into a 9x13 cake pan?


  1. I used Smucker's Natural peanut butter and I didn't have a bundt pan, so I thought I'd just make a 9-inch, 2-layer cake. Well, I filled those pans to the brim (hoping that pound cake wouldn't rise very much) and had enough more for 5 cupcakes. I almost overflowed the cake pans. LOL. I think less there and 12 cupcakes would have been better. But I trimmed off the extra (which was really good dipped in Recipe #89207) and had a cute little cake. There was only enough (peanut butter) frosting to coat the tops of the layers, which was okay. I sprinkled some dry-roasted peanuts on top for decoration. I got many compliments on the cake!

  2. This cake is so moist and has the perfect amount of peanut butter in it!! Its so good!!
  3. I made these into cupcakes as well today with great results. This recipe produces a perfect peanut buttery cake that is extremly tasty. I baked these for about 10 minutes since I made them in mini muffins pans. This made the perfect bit sized treat for me! I topped them with a mixture of the frosting posted here and a chocolate butter cream on the others for those who did not want such an intense peanutty cake.

  5. I followed the recipe and the instructions it cooked on the outside but not in the inside and it was after about 45 minutes so I cut it down to 325 degrees after about 15 minutes it started burning so I wasted good butter, vanilla, and peanut butter So Don't Try This Recipe.


  1. I used coconut oil and almond milk to make this dairy free. I also used crunchy peanut butter for the glaze since I ran out of creamy.
  2. I used 1 and 1/2 cups of butter in stead of 1 cup I used 1 Cup of packed brown Sugar a 2 cups of white sugar in stead of 3 cups of white sugar…. Only thing I may have done differently is baked it at 325 and not 350. It made it rise higher than i expected and it was a little well done at 350 for 1hr 15 mins which is what the recipe called for bit all in all its absolutely amazing!!!!
