This is an easy dessert recipe for punch bowl cake that EVERYONE will want the recipe for. The idea came from my mom. She has a similar recipe for this that gets rave results. We put a TINY little twist on her recipe for an extra layer of peanut butter cup flavor.

We used International Delight® REESE’S® Peanut Butter Cup Creamer from International Delight not only in our hot cup of coffee but also in our dessert.

Here’s how we made this Punch Bowl Cake:

  1. Bake a yellow cake mix according to package directions. Crumble the cooled cake.
  2. Beat together egg yolks, powdered sugar and melted butter until smooth. Fold in whipped topping.
  3. In a large bowl or trifle dish, alternate layers of crumbled cake, whipped filling, and crushed peanut butter cups.
  4. Top with a final layer of whipped topping and peanut butter cups.
  5. Chill overnight and serve!


TIP: Instead of making your cake mix with just water, use half water and half International Delight® REESE’S® Peanut Butter Cup creamer. This makes your cake super-moist and gives it more of that peanut butter and chocolate flavor.
