Ingredients

Cake

  • 1
    box Betty Crocker™ pound cake mix
  • 3/4
    cup water or milk
  • 2
    eggs

Creamy Peanut Butter Frosting

  • 3
    cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3
    cup peanut butter
  • 1/4
    to 1/3 cup milk
  • 2
    tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa

Decorations

  • 1
    to 2 tablespoons strawberry preserves
  • 2
    teaspoons sesame seed, toasted

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 300°F. Grease 1 1/2-quart round casserole with shortening; lightly flour.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, beat cake mix, water and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds; beat on medium speed 3 minutes. Pour into casserole.
  • 3
    Bake 1 hour 5 minutes to 1 hour 10 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove cake from casserole and place rounded side up on cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 4
    Cut cake horizontally into 3 equal layers. Freeze pieces uncovered about 1 hour for easier frosting if desired.
  • 5
    In medium bowl, mix powdered sugar and peanut butter with spoon or electric mixer on low speed. Stir 1/4 cup milk. Beat until smooth and spreadable. If necessary, stir in additional milk, 1/2 teaspoon at a time.
  • 6
    Place bottom cake layer on serving plate. Frost side only of layer. Mix 3/4 cup of the remaining frosting and the cocoa; if necessary, stir in 1 to 3 teaspoons milk until spreadable. Frost top of bottom layer with part of the cocoa frosting. Place middle (hamburger) layer on top; frost top and side of middle layer with remaining cocoa frosting.
  • 7
    Drizzle side of middle layer with preserves to look like ketchup. Place remaining (rounded) layer on top. Frost with remaining frosting. Immediately sprinkle top of cake with sesame seed.

  • Poppy seed—instead of the sesame seed—makes a great cake garnish, too.
  • Save time when you choose Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy ready-to-spread frostings instead of making the Creamy Peanut Butter Frosting. Tint vanilla frosting with orange and yellow food color to make a light tan color for the burger bun layers. Use chocolate frosting for the burger.
