Easy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake


This easy peanut butter cake is made with a yellow cake mix and vanilla pudding, along with peanut butter and chocolate chips. Add coconut if you like. 

To make it look extra-special, the cake is baked in a  Bundt cake pan sprinkled with finely chopped peanuts.

This cake would be wonderful served with a scoop of ice cream and a generous drizzling of  hot fudge sauce.

Cook Time: 55 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes


  • soft butter for the pan
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped peanuts
  • 1 box (2 layer size) yellow cake mix
  • 1 package instant vanilla pudding mix (3 3/4 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup coconut, optional


Generously butter a 10-cup bundt cake pan with the soft butter. Sprinkle the finely chopped peanuts in pan; shaking as you sprinkle to coat entire buttered surface.

In a mixing bowl beat cake mix and pudding mix, oil, water, and eggs until well blended, about 4 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer.

Beat in the peanut butter.

Pour about 1/3 of the batter into the pan; sprinkle with a layer of half of the chocolate chips and coconut. Repeat. Pour remaining batter into the pan and bake at 350° for about 55 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool cake in pan for 10 minutes then turn out onto rack and cool thoroughly.
