Chocolate-Peanut Butter Butter Cake

     Yes, this is as delicious as it sounds. I made this quite a while ago for Mother's Day, and I wanted to share it with you all because it is so. Good. I adapted the recipe from Recipes Food and Cooking (which is also where the photo is from) to make it more shopping-ban friendly :) Here you go: 

  • 1 German Chocolate Cake Mix (or follow the "Cake" portion of this recipe, but using the amount of butter and egg indicated here)
  • ½ cup butter - melted
  • 1 egg

  • Cream Cheese Layer
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 4 cups confectionery sugar

  • Chocolate topping
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, 325 degrees if using a glass pan.
  2. Combine the cake mix, egg and butter together. Beat until it is combined. Spray a 9 x 12 pan with cooking spray and then put the cake mix layer over the bottom. Pat it down.
  3. Combine the cream cheese, vanilla and peanut butter together until combined. Add the eggs one at a time and mix them in. Add the butter. When this is all combined together add the confectionery sugar. Spread evenly over the cake layer.
  4. Bake for about 50 minutes. I used a glass pan and it took just over an hour. The mixture will be puffed up in the center when done. It will jiggly just slightly. Remove from oven and let cool.
  5. Melt the chocolate for 1 minute in the microwave. Add the oil. Stir until combined. Spread over the top of the cream cheese layer.
