Ingredients

For the chocolate sponge

  • 250 g Butter or baking spread
  • 300 g Caster sugar
  • 4 Eggs large
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 315 g Self raising flour
  • 45 g Cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 150 g Natural yoghurt

For the peanut butter cheesecake filling

  • 200 g Full fat cream cheese
  • 100 g Caster sugar
  • 100 g Peanut butter
  • 1 Egg large
  • 1 tbsp Plain flour

For decoration

  • 75 g Milk chocolate melted
  • 75 g Peanut butter smooth
  • Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cups
  • Reese's Pieces

Instructions

  • Pre-heat your oven to 150C Fan/170C/325F/Gas Mark 3, and grease and flour a large bundt tin
  • Make the peanut butter cheesecake filling first by whisking together the ingredients until smooth. I used an electric whisk but you can do it by hand too. Set the mixture aside
  • For the chocolate sponge, mix the butter and sugar together until smooth
  • Add the eggs and the vanilla extract, and whisk in well
  • Add the yoghurt and whisk in well
  • Add the self raising flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. Whisk in gently until you can't see any flour anymore
  • Pour half of the chocolate cake batter into the tin, then add the cheesecake filling without letting it touch the sides of the tin
  • Then add the remaining chocolate cake batter on top. Completely cover the cheesecake filling, but try not to disturb it
  • Bake for 55 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean
  • Remove the cake from the tin by placing a cooling rack on top of the tin and flipping it over then removing the tin. Leave to cool completely
  • Once the cake is cool drizzle over the peanut butter (I warmed it in the microwave for 20 seconds to make it easier to drizzle) then drizzle over the melted milk chocolate
  • Add peanut butter cups, and/or Reese's Pieces on top as desired
  • Leftovers will keep in an airtight container for 3 days
