Peanut Bundt-er Buckeye Cake

So, there I was! Right smack in the middle of an ordinary Wednesday, about to run a few errands on my lunch hour, when I get a text from my homegirl {KK}... "Happy National Chocolate Cake Day!"

Lawd, this girl gets me.

I responded with the fact that I luv her because our friendship is based on a firm foundation of reality tv...chit chats...and CHOCOLATE CAKE! {#TrifectaYo}

Her mid-day message reminded me of a little number I like to call...{Peanut Bundt-er Buckeye Cake}. Want to make it? Please do! It's hella good. And, hella sinful. CoCo always told me to break the rules sometimes, so go 'head darlins. Chow down in your most sparkliest of crowns. 

And, don't you give one hot damn about how many calories this is.
Don't you dare!

{Step 1}: Mix it, Mamas!

Take your fave chocolate cake mix and pour the dry mix into a bowl. A 1 pkg. dry chocolate pudding mix, 1c sour cream, 1c veg oil, 4 eggs and 1/2c warm water. Mix it thoroughly in a stand mixer. 

{Step 2}: Fold it, Fellas!

When mixed, fold in 2c chocolate chips and a swirl of Hershsey's chocolate syrup.

{Step 3}: Bake it, Beauties!

Place the mixture into a greased {NOT FLOURED!} Bundt pan. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, then turn your oven down to 330 and back for another 35. Test and see if you need another 5 more minutes. It's up to you, depending on how you like your cake. Let your cake cool a bit, put a dish over the top and flip it out onto your cake stand.

{Step 4}: Top it, Tootsies!

For peanut butter glaze, combine 1.5c powdered sugar, 1/4c milk, 1/4c smooth peanut butter and 1/2t vanilla. Melt it a little bit and add it to a squeeze bottle. Start drizzling from the inside out. Don't worry if the outside base looks sloppy. 

{Step 5}: Ganache it, Gorge!

When your peanut butter drizzle is all set, start making a chocolate ganache. Whisk 3t cocoa, 2T melted butter, 1c powdered sugar and 2T hot water. Make sure ALL the sugar bumps are gone before adding this to a squeeze bottle. When you're ready to rock 'n roll, start drizzling the ganache from the inside to the outside edge. Again, don't worry about the bottom lookin' cranky.

{Step 6}: Add chips, Chica!

If your OCD is buggin' out because the bottom outside edges are lookin' kinda rough, grab some mini chocolate chip morsels and line the entire cake's border. No one will spot the sloppy drizzle and it'll add a little crunch to each slice eventually!

Wondering about the "Buckeye" part of the name? Welp. As an honorary Ohioan, this is an ode to THE Undisputed Champs of 2015. This cake and that team are both the stuff of Urban legends, ya know?
