One of the goals I had this year was not only to post more recipes, but to also revisit my most popular from years past and improve them based on feedback. I figured that was a manageable goal.

 

Especially considering my other two goals were to become Jason Bateman’s lover, and learn to bake drunk without injuring myself. When I come up with dreams, I follow them. Follow them hard. Until I get slapped with a restraining order and covered in burns and cuts.

 

I created this recipe for a giant peanut butter cup cake some time ago, and it’s quite popular. Improvements include more clear instructions, a better chocolate cake filling, and a ganache that is easier to peel from the mold. PLUS an instructional giant peanut butter cup cake video!

This Reese’s GIANT peanut butter cup cake consists of moist chocolate cake, with a layer of sweet peanut butter filling. It’s covered in chocolate ganache, and looks exactly like a peanut butter cup!

Peanut butter and chocolate solves problems. If Republicans and Democrats were forced to eat pb and chocolate together every day, they’d end up besties foreva.

 

Oh and we are throwing a giveaway! An entire basket of goodies, by Peanut Butter & Co and Rodelle . Enter at the end of the post for a collection of delicious peanut butter flavors, and Rodelle baking products.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in bowl. Add milk, vegetable oil, eggs and vanilla and stir. Pour in boiling water and whip on high speed for about a minute.
Pour 1 1/4 cups of batter into giant cupcake silicone mold (sprayed with vegetable oil) and bake for about 35 minutes. You will have enough batter to bake two cakes!

Once cake is cool, push out of mold. Slice top of cake to level off, then cut cake into two layers. Carefully trim around the side of the cake. You want the two layers to be smaller than the inside of the mold so that it fits in with space around the edge.

Trace the bottom of the cupcake mold onto a piece of wax or parchment paper. Place this piece on top of peanut butter mixture and roll with a rolling pin until it extends to edges of drawn circle. Use a sharp knife to cut along inside of circle. Remove excess peanut butter.

Place peanut butter in fridge to firm up a bit.

 

You will make ganache twice. First, for the bottom of the giant peanut butter cup cake, then to fill the sides and cover the top. Begin by tracing bottom of mold onto a piece of parchment paper. Cut out along inside of line and place in bottom of cupcake mold.

 

For bottom  ganache layer, pour 5 tablespoons of heavy cream into saucepan and heat on low. Chop up 1 3/4 giant chocolate Hershey bars into small pieces. You can use a hand blender by KitchenAid to break it up.

Once cream is warm enough to melt a piece of chocolate, add chocolate in and whisk until smooth. Pour into clean mold and refrigerate.

 

Place first layer of cake circle, peanut butter layer, and then second layer of cake on top of hardened ganache. The circles should be the same, even size. I try to make my peanut butter layer thicker than the cake layers. Make certain that there is space between the fillings and the side of the mold so as to leave space for ganache.
Heat 3/4 cup + 3 tablespoons of heavy cream in pot and whisk in 5 1/4 giant chocolate bars until smooth. Pour down sides of cake and peanut butter layers until filled, then on top to totally cover.
Refrigerate until hardened. Peel from mold when fully firm.

 

If you end up with extra ganache you can save that to make the two other tiers for your giant peanut butter cup cake.

 TIPS AND ADDITIONAL OPTIONS:

Additional options:

-You will end up baking two different cakes. You will also have some leftover peanut butter filling, and maybe some ganache. You can make an additional giant peanut butter cup cake with the extra cake, or save the cake to make THREE tiers. Use a large cupcake silicone liner and a regular-sized silicone cupcake liner, create a “medium” and a small pb cup cake for a three tiered cake. Walah!

 

Just reheat ganache and coat bottom with chocolate, then refrigerate. Use appropriate sized circle cookie cutters to cut out two layers of cake per cup, then a layer of peanut butter. Press cake in, pb in, and more cake into cupcake liners. Reheat or make more ganache and pour down sides, then top in molds. Watch the video tutorial to see these instructions.

Tips:

– Store the giant peanut butter cup cake in the refrigerator. Before serving, remove and allow to come to room temp to soften the ganache. This makes it easier to cut and eat.

– It is a VERY rich cake, so although it is not a large cake, each serving should only be a thing slice. This cake will serve more people than it appears to. Trust me on this. It is meant to be savored, not fill your belly. That’s what dinner is for. 

– DO NOT rush through making this. Take your time and following each step. Some people have had issues with the cake, then found success the second attempt when they were more attentive and chill. 

You can make all of the parts ahead of time. You can make the entire cake ahead of time. You can freeze it as well, although I cannot tell you the max time for freshness because it usually gets eaten up.

Make sure chocolate is chopped into very small bits for the ganache. Submerge all of it as much as possible into cream. Immediately whisk quickly (without splatttering) and constantly until chocolate is smooth and without chunks.  It will take a bit of arm work and a few minutes to mix it through. Do this with diligence and it will come out beautifully.
