A few weeks ago I found out a friend’s birthday was coming up- And I discovered she loves peanut butter and chocolate. Well, this is the perfect time of year to love peanut butter and chocolate in my kitchen because: Buckeyes! (Also known as peanut butter balls in the south)
I decided to try something a little different- I created a chocolate cake and I hid Buckeyes inside the batter. Here’s what I did:
for the cake:
To a devils food cake mix I added a cup of milk, four eggs and a 1/2 cup of oil. I beat on medium for two minutes and then poured the batter into a greased Bundt pan. Then I took 8 well chilled Buckeyes and gently set them on top of the batter – I knew they would sink into the cake as it baked and probably melt some! I baked the cake for about 45 minutes at 350.
After it cooled and I removed it from the pan I made a ganache. ( 6 tbspoons of hot cream, poured over a cup of chocolate chips, stirred until smooth)
i spread the ganache over the cake and then covered the top with crushed peanut butter cups.
Apparently it was pretty good!
