  • 1 10 cup bundt pan
  • 2 9x5 loaf pans optional


  • 3 cups Flour
  • ¾ cup Cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp Espresso powder 
  • cups Butter room temperature
  • 1 cup Sour cream room temperature
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 3 cups Sugar
  • 5 eggs

Peanut Butter Glaze

  • ½ cup Milk (use additional ¼ cup if you prefer a thinner texture glaze)
  • 1 cup PB2 or 1 cup of peanut butter
  • cups Powdered sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. 
  • In a mixing bowl, mix together flour, cocoa powder, and espresso powder. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, add butter and sour cream and cream together for 3-5 minutes on medium speed, until mixed together. (may appear separated, this is normal)
  • Add vanilla extract, salt, and sugar and continue to mix for another minute. Add eggs, one at a time. Scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure everything is mixed together and mix for another minute.
  • Add ½ of the dry ingredients, mix together, then add the remainder of the dry ingredients and mix until fully combined.
  • Spray a 10 cup bundt pan with nonstick baking spray and add batter. Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Note: If using loaf pans, split batter between 2 9x5 loaf pans and bake for 50-60 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. Allow cake to cool for 5 minutes in the pan then turn over onto a cooling rack or plate and allow to cool for 20 minutes.
  • To make the glaze, mix together milk, powdered sugar, and pb2 until smooth.
