Peanut butter cake

11 comments Oct 8th, 2009 | By | Category: Desserts and Sweets, Recipes

Having tried Petra’s cheesecake I was tempted to also try her Peanutbutter cake recipe. This peanut butter cake was again a great success. For those who like a light taste of peanut butter paired with cheese cake this is the ideal recipe. This easy recipe is easy to bake and the result is truly delicious.

Preparation time: 30 minutes
Baking time: 30 minutes
Easy recipe

Ingredients :

    For the topping

  • 600 gram cream cheese
  • 150 gram soft peanut butter
  • 100 gram sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • For the crust

  • 200 gram finely grounded shortbread or some other simple biscuit
  • 25 gram sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 60 gram butter
  • For the glazing

  • 80 gram bitter chocolate
  • 80 gram chocolate coating
  • a little bit cocoa butter
  • a hand full of crushed peanuts


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees centigrade.

For the topping:
Mix the cream cheese with the peanut butter and the sugar. Add the eggs and mix well.

For the crust:
Grind the short bread with your kitchen aid or mortar. Add all ingredients and mix well. Fill the mixture in a spring form pan and flatten it out. Press onto the bottom of the pan.
Now fill the toping into the spring form, spread it out well and place in the over for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile prepare the glazing:
Melt the chocolates and the cocoa butter over a hot water bath.
When the cake is ready baked let it cool off. Then spread the melted chocolate evenly over the cake and add some chopped and roasted peanuts.

Fridge for a while.

The German version “Erdnussbutterkuchen” you can find here.

  4. I love your picture and wowow your cake sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing :)

  5. I’m bookmarking this page right now! I must try this cake and cannot see how I will be able to forgive myself if I were to forget to make it! Must make it! :P

  6. I am sure I would not stop eating this cheesecake.

  7. I know that I would love that cake. Wow that looks yummy.

  8. Peanut butter and chocolate are one of those combinations that I just can’t get enough of! My mom used to make a frozen peanut butter ice cream pie in a chocolate oreo-based crust when I was young, and despite the fact that I know how unhealthy it is I’ll still get cravings once in a while. This pie looks divine.

  9. @Rosa: I do have the same problem :-)
    @Peter: and I had lots of them…

  10. Mmm … It looks amazing.
    Right now we are trying to make a sweet tasting cheesecake without adding any sugar. Unfortunately we haven’t quite succeeded yet, but we will definitely try one using cream cheese, dark chocolate and peanuts. What a good combination!

  11. Thanks David. I will keep an eye on your blog, which I like a lot, to see if you suceeded.
