Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Cake Cheesecake Last week I got an email from a kind reader asking if I would consider developing a recipe for one of her favorite "factory-made" desserts. The minute I clicked the link she provided, I knew I wanted to make her cheesecake dreams come true. I had concerns about how this cake would translate to real world baking. No doubt it is mass-produced with industrial equipment since it is sold nationwide at a popular restaurant chain. I knew I would have to simplify each of the recipe's elements and keep the baking equipment simple. With its many layers, the recipe I came up with is time consuming, but it will not be difficult for the home baker to execute. One other thing. This cake weighs in excess of 10 lbs. What accounts for the girth? It has four layers, two of which are dense cheesecakes filled with peanut butter cups, layered with a caramel made with two cans of sweetened condensed milk and a whopping 80 caramels (amongst other things... ahem...lots of butter). Sandwiched between the caramel layers are salty peanuts that provide a nice contrast to the sweetness, and a light as air whipped chocolate ganache frosting wraps the whole thing up. It is topped with an easy to make peanut butter frosting and garnished with more peanut butter cups and chocolate curls. Of course, the chocolate curls are optional, but just in case you want to make them I'm including a how-to video for them in this post. Below are many of the steps illustrated in pictures. Should you choose to indulge your time and waistline in this veritable peanut butter and chocolate opus, you may find them helpful. The recipe has notes that correspond with the numbered pictures. This may help you to visualize the steps as you read the recipe. Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Cake Cheesecake Serves 500 15-20 at least [click to print] Note: Plan ahead, this cake should be made over the course of 2-3 days. Please read this recipe in its entirety before making. I have included lots of helpful notes throughout the text. Edit: Also, please note that this cheesecake should be stored in the freezer and is easier to cut when still partially frozen. Crustless Cheesecake portion: 30 mini peanut butter cups, each one quartered 2 sticks (16 tbsp) softened butter 1 cup granulated sugar 4- 8 oz packages cream cheese, softened 1- 3 oz. package cook and serve vanilla pudding 4 eggs 2 tsp baking powder 1 tbsp lemon juice Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease two 9" pans with shortening, line the pans with parchment and then grease the parchment. Lightly flour the pans and tap out excess over the sink. Set aside. Cream butter and sugar in a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Add cream cheese a little at a time until smooth. Scrape bowl down and beat again on medium speed, adding eggs one at a time. Add remaining ingredients except peanut butter cups. Mix again until smooth. With a rubber spatula, fold in quartered peanut butter cups. Divide batter evenly between pans. You should have 8 cups of batter, so 4 cups in each pan. Smooth batter with offset spatula (Fig.1) and bake for 55 minutes to 1 hour. Cheesecake will puff up during baking, then deflate when taken out. Do not turn out cheesecakes when they are finished baking. Put them directly in the freezer, and leave until frozen solid. Turn out frozen cheesecake layers and peel parchment from the bottoms. Line the pan they were in with enough parchment or wax paper to hang over the sides of the pan (Fig. 3). Place the cheesecakes back in the pans. This makes removal FAR more easy after caramel layer has been added. Place cheesecakes back into the freezer while you make the caramel layer. Caramel for cake layers: 2-14 oz cans of sweetened condensed milk 10 tbsp. butter 80 caramels Scant cup of salted peanut halves Important note: This recipe is made in two batches, so all of the ingredients are divided. In a large microwaveable bowl, place 1- 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk, 5 tbsp. butter, and 40 caramels. Heat at 1 minute intervals until smooth. My household microwave at full power took about 4 minutes. Pour caramel evenly over frozen layers of cheesecakes. Be careful to not let much of the caramel drip over the sides. Sprinkle each layer with 3-4 tbsp. of salted peanut halves. Return cheesecake layers to freezer. Chocolate cake portion: 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour 2 cups sugar 3/4 cups cocoa powder, unsweetened 2 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp salt 1 cup buttermilk 1/2 cup canola oil (or other vegetable oil) 1 tsp. vanilla extract 1 cup of coffee - must be hot! Grease 2- 9" pans with shortening and line with parchment. Grease parchment and lightly flour pan, tapping out excess. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift all the dry ingredients into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment. In a 4 cup glass measure, mix all the wet ingredients except hot coffee! Turn mixer on low speed and gradually add wet ingredients to dry. Stop and scrape down the bowl, making sure to scrape the bottom where dregs tend to gather. Return mixer to low speed and beat in hot coffee. Mixture will be very thin. Divide batter evenly between the two pans, and bake for 35-40 minutes (check at 35). Cake is ready when toothpick tester comes out clean. Cool slightly in pans. Run knife around the edge of cakes and turn them out. Let them rest on a cooling rack. When cool, level cakes with a serrated knife or cake leveler. Line cake pans with parchment or wax paper, enough to hang over the edges (just like previously with the cheesecake layers). Return cake layers to parchment lined pans. Make 2nd batch of caramel as directed for the cheesecake layer. Pour caramel evenly over both chocolate cake layers (Fig. 4), sprinkle with 3-4 tbsp. salted peanut halves. Place caramel covered cakes in freezer until caramel has hardened a bit (about 15 minutes). Remove all cake layers from freezer. Remove all cake layers from pans using the parchment overhang to pull them out. Stack layers beginning with 1 layer of chocolate cake as the bottom, then cheesecake layer, then chocolate layer, and last cheesecake layer will be on top (Fig.5). Wrap layers in plastic wrap and freeze overnight. You'll frost your cake the next day. Chocolate ganache frosting: 13 oz. or 1 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips 1 1/2 cups heavy cream 1/2 tbsp. corn syrup Note: Remove cheesecake layers from freezer and unwrap. Choose your serving plate and line it with wax paper strips. Place cake over strips. Now you're ready to frost. Put chocolate chips in a medium bowl or 4 cup measure. Heat cream in a saucepan over medium high heat until very hot but not boiling. Pour hot cream over chips and stir until smooth. Remove 2/3 cup chocolate mixture and pour into a small bowl. Add 1/2 tbsp. corn syrup and stir. When combined, immediately pour over top of cake (Fig. 6), creating a shiny dark topping and taking care that most remains on top of the cake and doesn't spill down the edges (Fig.7). Return cake, uncovered this time, to freezer. Fit stand mixer with whisk attachment. Pour remaining chocolate ganache into the stand mixer bowl and whip on the highest speed for 5-10 minutes (I set my timer for 7 minutes) until icing is light and fluffy. Icing is ready when it is thick and can be pulled into a stiff peak (Fig. 8). Remove cake layers from freezer and frost sides with chocolate ganache using an offset spatula. The whipped frosting should grab on to the frozen cakes well. Use all the ganache frosting, evening the cake's surface as you work. Chocolate curls: 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips -semisweet Equipment: 11x14 cookie sheet Small brownie spatula with a sharp edge - like this one Melt chocolate chips at 30 second intervals in the microwave; stir until smooth. Pour onto cookie sheet and spread evenly with an offset spatula. Place in refrigerator for 5-7 minutes, or until the chocolate is firm and has a matte appearance. Remove from refrigerator and let stand for a few minutes (3-5ish) at room temperature. With a small, sharp spatula, begin scraping chocolate at one edge in a thin strip. If chocolate breaks into pieces it is too cold, so allow it to stand a few minutes more at room temp. Chocolate should curl easily as you run your spatula under the chocolate and down the length of the cookie sheet. Place curls in a small bowl and store in refrigerator until ready for use. To garnish cake with chocolate curls, let cake stand at room temperature for a few minutes, then remove curls from refrigerator and gently press into the sides of the cake. Peanut Butter Frosting and Garnish: 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter 8 tbsp butter, softened 1 cup confectioners' sugar 9 mini peanut butter cups Cream peanut butter and butter together in stand mixer with whisk attachment. Gradually add powdered sugar. Whip on high speed until light and fluffy. Transfer icing to a piping bag fitted with a large french piping tip. Pipe 8 large swirls around the top edge of cake, and pipe one swirl in the middle. Garnish each swirl with a peanut butter cup. Notes: * This cake should be sliced and served cold, not frozen. ***Edit: I'm being told from some of you that it is easier to slice partially frozen. Store in freezer. * Using the exact same pans for both cheesecakes and chocolate cakes will keep you from having to trim the edges when stacking all layers together. (I had to trim the cheesecake edges a little, see Fig.7) * The caramel is very gooey and when cold can be a little resistant to slicing. Run a knife under hot water and dry it off, then cut the cake with the warm knife for a nice even slice. Thank you Debbie for the excellent post idea! I loved writing this recipe and taste-testing the results!

Oooooh, looking at this makes me go weak in the knees. Will have to give the recipe a try! April 1, 2011 1:27 AM Frances said... GORGEOUS April 1, 2011 2:20 AM warmvanillasugar said... Holy crap. This cake is beyond amazing. I'm freaking drooling!! April 1, 2011 2:47 AM Jami said... I did something similar to this for my husband's birthday in February. Having to make up the recipe as I went along I made a chocolate chip flecked cheesecake and then brownies as the "cake" layer and used some leftover chocolate fondue and combined it with your cream cheese frosting recipe for in between the layers and the outside. Definitely very rich and dense and it took us both sharing it almost a week and a half to polish it off. Also, made it using a single 6 in round cake pan. With it being such a small pan, it was easy enough to bake off a full batch and cut it in half for the layers once it cooled. I may have to use this recipe for a dinner party coming up though! April 1, 2011 5:00 AM amanda @ fake ginger said... OMG. Please send me a pound or so of this bad boy. Looks amazing! :) April 1, 2011 5:00 AM Kim said... WOW! This cake is totally awesome!

You MADE this? It's an absolute masterpiece! Seriously impressed..and hungry. April 5, 2011 2:39 PM Miller's Missions said... Made this cake for a friend's birthday after reading your post, we ate it last night. Tasted amazing! But completely and totally fell apart. I live in the Philippines so it's really hot and humid and the caramel layer wouldn't stay put, it ran like mad even chilled and the layers fell off, and the ganache layer wouldn't stay put either. Don't have a freezer big enough so I just kept it in the ref. Big mistake. It fell apart just chilled, it was actually quite comical. One whole side fell off and stuck to the side of the ref. But great recipe and great instructions. Your version is beautiful, wish mine would have been. Thanks so much!! April 5, 2011 3:34 PM ashumi said... OMG!!!!!! this is just awesome.... i had a question to ask. i am vegetarian is there a way to bake any of ur desserts without eggs?? can u give me their substitutes! i would be very grateful!! thanks, ashumi April 5, 2011 7:40 PM ashumi said... forgot to pass my email id: email@example.com thanks again.

April 6, 2011 12:06 AM SprinkleBakes said... Hi MeiQuian, thanks for catching that - bake at 350 degrees. To Miller's Missions - thanks for the feedback! So glad it was tasty, but hate to hear that it fell apart! I believe storing it in the freezer would have helped. Perhaps you can salvage it by making it into a trifle? Kindest regards to you both. -Heather April 6, 2011 5:22 AM sallaboutme said... Wow, how incredibly decadent and sinful. I love it! And I love the video for the chocolate curls. April 6, 2011 7:33 AM Heather Ozee said... I'm foaming at the mouth! goodness girl. You have one lucky hubby to have stuff like that on the counter to munch on. Can't wait to see you this summer. We'll be up sometime between June 25th and July 2nd. Will hubby share whatever is on your counter then? ;) April 6, 2011 12:06 PM Maricela said... this looks amazingly yummy!! i am soooo gonna try it at home. I am sure my husband will love to have a cake like this :) althought i'm not sure if i'll get any of it after he sees it hahaha April 6, 2011 1:53 PM Memória said... *APPLAUSE* WOW! What a lovely cheesecake! Goodness!! I must make this for myself if I ever graduate...or WHEN I graduate. Thank you for the detailed photos. I have a question: Would homemade caramel be easier to work with than the store-bought kind? It seems it would be, but I'm not sure. April 6, 2011 2:37 PM Farrah said... OMG magnificent!!!!!You HAVE to take a bow! This looks so time consuming but so worth it! April 6, 2011 3:48 PM Anonymous said... This cake looks amazing! I watched the video--also awesome btw--but can you tell me how you got the chocolate curls to stay on the sides of the cake? Do they just stick to the frosting or did you do something else to hold them up? Thanks! :) April 6, 2011 6:00 PM Megan said... What a delight this would be at my Easter party. This is magnificent and so impressive. April 6, 2011 8:52 PM alice said... Beautiful idea and fantastic execution. I especially live the rustic feel the cake has from the colours and the chocolate curls. April 6, 2011 11:26 PM Darla @ Bakingdom said... Jackpot! My husband's birthday is very soon and this is all of his favorite things rolled into one irresistible dessert! Thank you for taking the thinking out of what to make him this year!! :) P.S. Could you have made this more gorgeous? Love it! April 7, 2011 5:59 AM Erin said... Wow! I'm speechless! And I need a slice of this right now for breakfast!!! April 7, 2011 8:19 AM Mike said... WOW! What a cake! It looks great! And kudos to you for taking the time to document the entire process with your incredible photos. Fantastic post. April 7, 2011 8:38 AM Your Sissy, Amy said... Oh Heather! You've really outdone yourself with this cake. You know that peanut butter desserts are my favorite, right. What are the chances this will be on the table at Christmas eve (Please, Please, Pretty please lol)? Love the video too. Noah started dancing and Hannah came over immediately to see where the music was coming from. I love you Sissy (and your awesome desserts)! April 8, 2011 1:15 PM Shaina said... I couldn't help laughing when I saw this. So perfect, I can't even begin to tell you. I love that your cheesecake looks a million times better than the "factory-made" variety that inspired it. Plus, I've been on a peanut butter and chocolate binge for a month, so perfect timing to further lead me down that sinful path. April 8, 2011 9:02 PM Katie Mar said... oh. my. gosh!!!! this is THE prettiest cake i've ever seen!! so delicious looking and you take beautiful pictures!! p.s. i'm happy to be your 2000th follower!! April 9, 2011 11:34 PM Heather McMullin said... Wowzers!!! This looks simply amazing!! I am going to add a link to your blog on my blog. Someone with this kind of talent deserves it!! If you don't mind I would love to do a post about your blog and this cake. Let me know if that is ok. Thanks a bunch! Heather email: firstname.lastname@example.org blog: www.madefamousby.blogspot.com April 10, 2011 7:53 AM Joanne said... My roommate has a pretty big birthday coming up and I think I would be absolutely remiss in not making this for her. I think she'd have the rights to move out and disown me, in fact. Off to the kitchen I go! April 11, 2011 6:11 AM Anonymous said... I made this for my husbands birthday and it was amazing!!! Thank you so much for this blog!! April 11, 2011 9:22 AM Xinmei @ Pudding Pie Lane said... Wow, just... I can't stop staring at this :O Well done! :) April 11, 2011 11:00 AM Allison said... Oh my goodness this cake is extravagant!! You did such an amazing job! April 11, 2011 11:22 AM Swee San @ TheSweetSpot said... goodness!! So sinful, so rich and so extravagant!! I am ever so tempted to make it April 12, 2011 12:33 AM cailen ascher said... my mouth is watering. i love cheesecake and i love pb & chocolate. what could be better than putting them together?! genius! April 15, 2011 9:36 AM Lili said... What a fabulous "over the top" dessert Heather! What an exciting masterpiece to behold. I love that wire cake pedestal. Your video was so awesome, you made it look effortless and I loved the background music. I'm just so curious how much of that cake you and your husband could even eat! This would be so fun to make for a crowd, it certainly has a huge WOW factor! xo ~Lili April 16, 2011 10:24 AM Debbie said... I am almost speechless...almost...but this is MY favorite cheesecake at "the factory" and you have made my homemade cheesecake dreams come true. This looks even more beautiful than their cake and I bet it tastes even better. Nice work! April 17, 2011 11:58 AM Sara said... My friend's mother made this cake for her birthday, it took her all weekend but it was beyond gorgeous AND delicious!(they guessed it at 15 pounds) I reposted the pictures of her version of the cake (sans chocolate curlicue's) on my lifestyle blog: www.goodiesandgarbs.com. Your blog is great, thanks! April 18, 2011 5:31 AM jaselle van Gestel said... hey im hoping to make this recipe but im from australia and have no idea what "cook and serve vanilla pudding" is. is there anything else i could use to replace this ingredient? April 20, 2011 3:04 AM Real Housewife said... OK, so I need help. I made the cheesecake last night and cannot get it out of the pan. I greased the pan, added wax paper (only on the bottom) and greased and floured it before adding the batter. I will admit I allowed the cheesecake to cool in the pan for a little bit before putting it in the freezer (because I didn't want the hot pan to melt anything in there) Where did I go wrong and how can I get it out without it breaking into a million pieces? Help please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! April 21, 2011 11:47 AM Practically Spent said... I don't even know what to say. I'm just in awe....drooling. Probably the most impressive non-fondant cake I have ever seen. April 21, 2011 4:32 PM Kayla said... I made this for my family to have yesterday. It was a huge hit! Thank you so so much. April 25, 2011 12:41 PM Lauren at Keep It Sweet said... This might be the most amazing looking dessert I have ever seen! You did an incredible job- better than any Cheesecake Factory version could be! April 27, 2011 9:49 AM Lauren at Keep It Sweet said... Hi Heather- I was wondering what the chocolate mixture is that you are pouring in photo 6. Is that another ganache? April 27, 2011 10:19 AM SprinkleBakes said... Hi Lauren! That is the ganache frosting un-whipped. You remove a portion of the ganache, pour it over the cake and then whip the remaining portion in a stand mixer. Hope this helps! April 27, 2011 10:44 AM Lauren at Keep It Sweet said... Yes it does! Thanks for the fast response! I am loving your blog:-) April 27, 2011 10:46 AM Marisa said... So I made half of this tonight and so far it is super easy! My only complaint is the cake part. I will say first that I might have done something wrong, but it tasted weird...almost like those dense flourless cakes. It was also super gummy in the middle no matter how long I cooked it. Again...I may have done something wrong, or perhaps something was left out of the recipe. I ended up using a chocolate cake recipe that I have had a long time from Hershey and the only difference in the recipe is it contains 2 eggs and baking soda. I don't see how that could have made such a difference, but it did. Just a little FYI. April 28, 2011 12:10 AM Kristen said... This cake is amazing!!! I am making it now and so far, so good! This is my boyfriend's dream cake and will hopefully make the best birthday cake I have made to date! April 29, 2011 5:04 PM Maggie said... Oh oh oh!! I don't care what else I achieve this year - I want those chocolate curls! April 30, 2011 12:31 PM denali said... This recipe has my mother's name all over it! I'm half tempted to try it for Mother's Day :) She might hate me for it, though. Hmmm. Only one thing - she doesn't do coffee. At all. I wonder if I could use chai tea instead? Might be yummy. Thank you for all the cake gorgeousness! May 3, 2011 7:46 AM Brétema said... This cake is amazing. I love it! May 4, 2011 1:46 PM blushingstrawberries said... Oh My Goodness!! May 5, 2011 12:19 PM carla said... truly stunning. one of the most incredibly gorgeous confections I've ever had the pleasure of ogling. fabtacular and fantabulous all wrapped into one! May 5, 2011 6:59 PM RecipeGirl said... This is like the most delicious thing I've ever seen. Bravo! And congrats on the Saveur nom! May 12, 2011 6:02 AM Joy in Missoui said... So......all of my layers are stacked and in the freezer! Ready to frost today! My mother likes to send me challenges over stumble upon and this was her latest! So here I am in the final stages and I really cant wait to finish! The cool thing is that we have family that has been in europe home for the summer. They just got in a couple days ago so I am thinking this is a real "welcome home" treat! May 19, 2011 5:40 AM Sarah said... I made this cake with the help of a friend in less than 24 hours. I loved the process and the end result is amazing. I think I've found the only dessert that can put me in a coma. Thanks for creating this recipe! What a decadent treat. May 30, 2011 6:25 PM Lisa said... For the cheesecake, do we add the cook and serve pudding as a powder or do we have to prepare it first before adding it to the mix? thanks! June 7, 2011 1:52 PM SprinkleBakes said... Hi Lisa, add it as powder - super easy! June 7, 2011 1:54 PM *cupcake* said... i have absoloutly no reason to make this other than the intense desire to! but seems like a lot of money/ingredients for me just to have a peice or to of ! June 9, 2011 7:37 AM Lisa said... Maybe it's because I don't have a stand mixer, but I beat the ganache frosting on the highest setting for like 30 minutes and it's just not stiffening. I'm leaving it in the fridge over night to see if it will thicken enough but I'm not very hopeful. Do you have any suggestions of another chocolate frosting recipe that would go well? I already put the ganache on top of the cake (which was too runny and flowed down the sides - I don't know what I did wrong! =( ) thanks! June 9, 2011 9:05 PM SprinkleBakes said... Hi Lisa, Sorry to hear you are having a spot of trouble with the cake. I would use the chocolate version of this whipped cream recipe (below). It is pretty simple, and you don't need a stand mixer. http://www.joyofbaking.com/WhippedCreamFrosting.html June 10, 2011 3:26 AM Lisa said... Just letting you know that the chocolate whipped cream recipe worked out well. The cake came out great, although not as pretty looking as yours. I made it for my boyfriend's birthday this past weekend and he literally said "this is the best cake I've ever had"! thanks!! June 14, 2011 9:57 PM Anne said... I sent this page to my sister and asked her to make this for my birthday (in 3 months) - it will be the big 60 for me and what better way to celebrate than with this work of art??? It's beautiful. Thank you for creating and sharing this. June 17, 2011 9:38 PM Heather A said... Thankyou for the inspiration - I used this idea to make layers of flourless mocha cake and baileys cheesecake with caramel and macadamia filling. Thankyou, from Melbourne (Aus), other Heather! June 25, 2011 12:21 AM Stephanie C said... Hi Heather, I am currently on day one of baking this amazing cake for my boyfriend's birthday (this sunday!) and I put my beautiful cheesecakes in the freezer about an hour ago. Do you have any time frame for how long they take to completely freeze so that I can either stay up a bit longer to prep the caramel sauce, or go to bed and make it tomorrow? I tried to Google but had no luck. I can't wait to see this as a final project. All of my friends and family are very excited and proud of me for attempting such a professional cake!! Thank you for the inspiration. I can't wait for your book! July 6, 2011 8:39 PM HeatherS said... Gorgeous cake. I am inspired to make something similar for my friend's birthday next week. However, I was surprised to see no eggs in the chocolate cake layer. I have another recipe that is identical but contains 2 eggs. Might that be a typo? July 9, 2011 8:10 AM Mrs. Olio said... I just have to tell you that your cake is so much prettier than the one that inspired it! Very nice! July 20, 2011 6:00 AM Mamie said... Wow! That is all I can say! Love it.
