3

  • 1 Heat oven to 325°F. Grease bottom and side of 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with shortening; lightly flour. Sprinkle nuts evenly in bottom of pan. In medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; set aside. In large bowl, beat 1/2 cup butter and 3/4 cup peanut butter with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs. On low speed, beat in milk and vanilla.

  • 3 In 1-quart saucepan, heat chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons butter and corn syrup over low heat, stirring frequently, until chocolate chips are melted. Cool about 10 minutes. Stir in hot water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until glaze is smooth and has the consistency of thick syrup. Spoon over top of cake, allowing glaze to run down side.
  • 4 In small microwavable bowl, microwave 3 tablespoons peanut butter on High 20 seconds or until it can be stirred smooth and is drizzling consistency. Drizzle over top of chocolate glaze.

Expert Tips

Test the cake in the center, in a crack if there is one, as the crust can clean off the toothpick as you remove it, making you think the cake is done when it might not be.
