I don’t know about you, but in our house we are HUGE peanut butter fans. When it comes to chocolate and peanut butter, that is even more of a obsession. My step dad can eat peanut butter by the spoonful straight from the jar! That is why when I stumbled across a recipe for Peanut Butter Pound cake I just knew it was on the must make list for this weekend. I’ve got to warn you though before you make this recipe it is HIGHLY addictive! I chose not to add a scoop of ice cream like I wanted to originally, and enjoy this scrumptious and perfectly sweetened Reeses Peanut Butter Pound Cake all by itself.
This recipe took just minutes to put together, and baking time was standard for a quick cake mix. But my absolute favorite part of this recipe is that it uses a regular boxed yellow cake mix! Honestly, you would never know. The flavor and the texture was out of this world good. Give it a try and let me know what you think. Next time I make this pound cake, I think I want to try chopped snickers or chopped rolo for a different twist. I hope you enjoy ….
Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Pound Cake Recipe
1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky – your choice)
1 Tbs vanilla
1 cup milk
2 cups reeses peanut butter cups – chopped
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, Grease and flour 2 loaf pans.
Combine the first 5 ingredients, mixing well. Fold in the reeses chunks gently so they don’t break up to much.
Divide the batter between the 2 prepared loaf pans.
Bake in 350 oven for 30 – 40 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove from the loaf pans and let cool on a wire rack.
For an even more decadent treat, top your Reeses Peanut butter Pound cake with a thin layer of chocolate frosting or a big creamy scoop of vanilla ice cream.
