Chocolate Pudding Reeses Peanut Butter Cake starts with a homemade chocolate cake.
- 2 oz. chocolate, chopped (I used some bittersweet, some milk chocolate)
- 1/2 cup boiling water
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2/3 cup milk (soy if you want to make it vegan)
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease 2 8-inch round cake pans. Place the chocolate pieces in a bowl. Pour the boiling water over it and whisk until completely melted and uniform. Let this cool for a bit.
Next whisk the flour, sugars, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a bowl until combined.
Add milk, oil and vanilla into the cooled chocolate mixture and mix thoroughly.
Pour the batter into your prepared pans and bake for approximately 18 minutes. Let cool on wire racks.
They will be thin cakes. Great for layering :)
The rest of the cake is even simpler. Prepare a package of pudding of your choice. I like chocolate. Spread the pudding onto one of the layers of cake. Top that with about 2/3 cup crushed mini Reeses Peanut Butter cups.
Top with other cake layer. You can use whatever you want to ice the cake. I used whipped cream.
And it was delicious.
