Peanut Butter Cup Bundt Cake

My mom wanted to make a bundt cake because she had never made one before. She started off with a fresh strawberry lemon yogurt cake. It was really good but I like chocolate cake better. She promised the next one could be my pick. So when my time came I chose a peanut butter cup cake! She found it over on Whipped-the blog. I couldn’t wait to try it! Mommy wan’t in a rush so I had to bug her just enough times to make her say yes. It was a LOT of times! So we got baking!

            

            

            

             

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake

1 box Duncan Hines Devil’s Food Cake mix
16 oz. sour cream
3 large eggs
20 mini peanut butter cups

For the glaze:
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
2 Tablespoons powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the cake mix, sour cream and eggs in a bowl and beat with electric mixer or stand mixer on medium until fully combined, about 3-4 minutes. Grease and flour a bundt pan. Put half the batter in the pan. Cut peanut butter cups in quarters and sprinkle them over the batter. Top with remaining batter. Cook at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cake stand in pan for 10 minutes. Turn it out on a rack to cool.

For the glaze: Heat milk in a sauce pan. Whisk peanut butter in to hot milk. Whisk in powdered sugar. Put cake on rack over a sheet pan (to catch extra glaze) Drizzle the glaze over the cake and serve right after glazing.

It is my favorite cake ever! Mommy let me eat some when it was still gooey and warm with a glass of cold milk. I made a terrible mess though. My face was so covered in cake that she had to wash it for me. You should make it for your kids unless peanuts are bad for you, then don’t make it. But it’s really really good!

If you make it let mommy and me know what you think of it!

Happy baking!

Yummy healthier treats

Getting Ready For Kindergarden

I’m starting “big school” really soon so my mommy has been getting me some cool school supplies. She bought me the best lunch kit ever from Winners, and it’s made by Smart Planet. It’s kinda squishy so it gets small, but pops out to make more room. My mommy got it early so I could practice with it. That way I wont have any trouble when I’m on my own at school! It was tough at first but I finally got the hang of it. It has lots of room for all kinds of goodies. Since I am little my lunch won’t fill the spaces so mommy bought some little containers that fit well inside if I need them. It can be used flat too! How cool is that?! I have a feeling we are going to like this lunch kit! The only downside was our Winners store didn’t have any of the other Smart Planet products so we’ll have to keep our eye out and buy them if we find them.

My lunch kit all “popped open”

It squishes flat so I can save room in my backpack!

All full of lunch and being tested out from backpack to belly!

Do your kids have a cool lunch kit? I’d love to know what kind they have!
