Peanut Chew Vanilla Cake

peanut chew vanilla cake

This is a great combination of flavors. Crunchy chocolate crumbs with chunks of Goldenberg's Peanut Chews in your favorite vanilla cake. Yum. Baking it in a tube pan is optional. You can bake it in a 9x13 for a less fancy but just as tasty presentation. Enjoy this jazzed up cake.

  • 1 package 18.25 ounces plain yellow cake mix, mixed according to directions on the box or your favorite vanilla cake batter
  • about 30 peanut chews chopped into small pieces (I chopped each one into eighths)
  • chocolate crumbs (recipe follows)
  • peanut butter glaze (recipe follows)

Chocolate Crumbs

  • 2/3 cup margarine, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 2/12 - 3 cup all purpose flour

Peanut Butter Glaze

  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 3-4 tablespoon warm water


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix peanut chews into chocolate crumbs and set aside. Grease and flour tube pan. Pour one half of the cake batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle one third of the chocolate crumb peanut mixture on top of the batter. Pour the rest of the batter on top of the crumbs and place in oven for 15 min. After 15 minutes take another third of crumb-chew mixture and sprinkle on top of the slightly set cake. Bake for another 40 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean.

Cool in pan. When cool insert a long knife blade and run it along the inside of the cake. This will loosen it from the pan. Remove inner tube of pan and place on a cake plate. Drizzle with peanut butter glaze if desired. If baking in a 9x13 bake for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean. About 16 servings in a tube pan, and 24 servings in a 9x13.

Chocolate Crumbs

This makes more crumbs than needed for this recipe. They freeze beautifully and can be sprinkled on any random cake or cupcake that needs some dressing up.

In a large microwave proof bowl melt margarine. Add the rest of the ingredients and with your hands rub the ingredients together to form crumbs. (This must be done by hand).

Peanut Butter Glaze

Mix all ingredients together until you get a drizzling consistency. If still to thick add more water.
