Marble Pound Cake Recipe


1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 TBS homemade powdered sugar
2 TBS homemade unsalted butter, softened
2 TBS hot water
1 cup peanut butter chips
1 TBS shortening

your favorite white cake mix
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1-1/4 cups water
3 eggs

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting, recipe below
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, chopped (optional garnish)

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Cover the bottom of the pan with wax or parchment paper, then grease and flour the pans. Tap to remove excess flour; set aside.

In a small bowl, stir together the cocoa, confectioners' sugar, butter and 2 tablespoons hot water until smooth and set aside. In microwavable bowl, place peanut butter chips and shortening. Microwave on high for 1 minute, or until chips are melted and smooth when stirred.

In large bowl, combine cake mix, brown sugar, 1-1/4 cups water, eggs and reserved melted peanut butter mixture; beat on low speed of electric mixer until moistened. Increase speed to medium, beat 2 minutes until smooth.

Remove 1-1/2 cups of the batter and add it to the reserved cocoa mixture; blend well. Pour the peanut butter flavored batter into the prepared pan. Drop spoonfuls of the chocolate batter on top. Swirl with a knife or spatula for a marbled effect.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool and frost. Sprinkle with the chopped Reese's peanut butter cups. Peanut butter frosting recipe below.


1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup creamy homemade peanut butter, room temperature

Place the butter and peanut butter into a medium bowl, and beat with an electric mixer. Gradually mix in the sugar, and when it starts to get thick, incorporate milk one tablespoon at a time until all of the sugar is mixed in and the frosting is thick and spreadable.
