Peanut Butter Tagalong Bundt Cake

I joined a group called the Bundt Bakers a month ago and this is my first month posting with them. Every month there is a new theme to interpret into a bundt cake. This months theme is Girl Scout cookies which is so appropriate as I am seeing Girls Scouts every weekend out selling their cookies. I remember selling Girl Scout cookies many years ago and they were 35 cents a box!

This is my favorite peanut butter cake. I made it last year and then misplaced the recipe. I looked for it everywhere I thought it could be. When I couldn’t find it I made a cake in a cookbook I have that sounded similar to it. I knew as soon as it came out of the oven it wasn’t going to be good. Hope against hope I went ahead and decorated it and then did pictures. When I finally cut into the cake it was really evident the cake was a disaster. I put it in the garbage immediately, it was that terrible.

I checked my email folder then again to see if I had written it down and I had. I immediately baked a new cake and success! It was my cake recipe I loved. I do my best to never share a recipe that doesn’t work or taste good. If you’ve ever wondered what happens when something I make is a disaster, now you know! In the garbage without a second thought.

Peanut Butter Tagalong Bundt Cake

This is a really light cake with a light peanut butter flavored cake topped with chocolate ganache, peanut butter and chopped up tagalong cookies. I just heated the peanut butter in the microwave for about 15 seconds and used it as is. The topping is perfect on this cake. If it isn’t Girl Scout cookie season I would chop up some vanilla wafers or even oreo’s for the cookie part.

      LOL Wendy! Thanks for the welcome. You can’t go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate. It also gave me an excuse to buy another box of Girl Scout Cookies.

    Another Tagalong girl after my own heart! Seriously, the best combination. Too bad your first recipe came out horrible! It’s always so disheartening to throw a cake away, but the crumb on this second one looks just perfect. 🙂
