Peanut Butter Chocolate Gooey Cake

February 19, 2013


Every time I make a gooey cake it always gets rave reviews.  I have previously shared with you the chocolate, vanilla and pumpkin versions.  Most recently I made the vanilla gooey cake with the Betty Crocker Rainbow Chip cake mix and everyone loved it.  I thought I would try a new version for my friend’s birthday and whipped up a chocolate base with peanut butter filling.  It seemed to be a hit and definitely made my house smell amazing while it was baking!

I’ve decided I might have to dedicate my blog to gooey cakes and see how many versions I can come up with.  Next up…strawberry!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Gooey Cake


  • 1 package chocolate cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 sticks of butter – melted separately
  • 8oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 box (16oz) powdered sugar
  • 1 t vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • In large mixing bowl, combine cake mix with 1 stick melted butter and 1 egg. Press into the bottom of a greased 13×9 cake pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl (I always use the same one that I just did the cake mix in without cleaning it) mix together the cream cheese and peanut butter.  Stir in 3 eggs, 1 stick melted butter, and vanilla.  Mix in powdered sugar until smooth.
  • Pour cream cheese mixture on top of cake mix crust and spread evenly.
  • Bake for 40 to 50 minutes – trying not to overbake. Mine usually take exactly 40 minutes but think I did this one for 45 min.

I think this would be even better if you have some peanut butter chips to mix in so add those to your shopping list.
