Peanut Butter & Jelly Swirl Bundt - I Like Big Bundts
Day 27 of I Like Big Bundts: 30 Days of Bundt Cakes
Peanut Butter & Jelly Swirl Bundt

I still love the PB&J sandwich. I have one at least once a week for breakfast or a snack. When I was a kid, it was super white Wonderbread, but now it is wheat bread with homemade jam. But the combo is always just perfect. Sometimes I slip in a banana too. Yeah, I know, c-r-a-z-y.

Thanks to my friend JustJenn of JustJennDesigns for making the logo!
I'm hoping you celebrate a great food holiday: National Bundt Day on November 15th. In only three short days! I've been making 30 Bundts in the 30 days leading up the National Bundt Day. Just don't ask how much butter I've used. Just don't go there.

This recipe has chunky peanut butter in the batter and two swirls of jam in the Bundt.

This has protein (peanut butter). Therefore, you can have a slice for lunch. Just sayin'.

Also, you are into PB&J, check out JustJenn's PB&J cupcakes! I proclaim that these rock...since I was lucky enough to try one! :)

Holy smokes. Book Patrol wrote the nicest post about my blog and the fact that I have a Bundt in the Oven (Love that pun...I'll have to use that next year...WAIT, there ain't gonna be a next year!) Two members of the library made the Persimmon Bundt! Rock on baking librarians!

And made Day #1 Bundt and likes to write the word Bundt in her post! Hee hee. I hope you had friends help you finish the Bundt!

Time is ticking! National Bundt Day is Sunday, November 15th. Sweet. See you tomorrow for, you guessed it, another Bundt! Bundt! Bundt!

Peanut Butter & Jelly Swirl Bundt Cake
from Welch's website

You can find the recipe on the Welch's website, but I found the listing of ingredients confusing. Who lists flour, baking powder, baking soda with different ingredients in-between? So I reordered things here and left the Welch's instructions.

2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter (one stick), at room temperature
2 cups sugar

3/4 cup chunky-style peanut butter
2 tsp. vanilla
3 large eggs
1 cup dairy sour cream

1/2 cup Welch's Grape Jelly

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place baking rack in bottom third of oven.
2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. In large bowl, beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add peanut butter and vanilla, beating until well combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until incorporated. Beat in sour cream. Reduce mixer to lowest speed and gradually add flour mixture, mixing until just blended. Spoon half of the batter (about 3 cups) into greased 12 cup bundt pan. Dollop 3 Ts of the jelly over batter avoiding edges of pan.
3. Partially stir jelly into batter using a skewer or thin bladed knife. Spoon remaining batter into pan and dollop and swirl remaining jelly into batter. Bake for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted into center comes out clean. Let cake cool in pan for 10 minutes, then invert onto wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Not only protein in this bundt, but fruit too - you'd be unhealthy if you didn't have it for lunch! Good job keeping up the pace. I'll be posting on Sunday for National Bundt Day.

You're almost there! I'm sad to say that I can't participate in national bundt day next week due to the complete and total absence of a kitchen in our house right now. But when the remodel is done, I'm picking my fave and making a bundt to christen the new kitchen! :)

Oh, no there's not gonna be another one next year?!? You're probably gonna be too busy with the bundt in your oven. :)

A bundt in the it :). What do you mean, you are not doing this next year????!!!

Hindy said... [Reply to comment]

Yay, a bundt with protein. I love p,b&j w/ bananas. I might try this bundt and toss some dehydrated bananas in the batter.
Three more bundts!

Azusa said... [Reply to comment]

Hi Mary! Thanks for stopping by Humble Bean—I was about to leave you a comment but you beat me to it. You see, I was the very lucky recipient of a slice of this bundt (thanks to Allyson!). YUMMY!! I've been following your ambitious 30 days and was ecstatic when Allyson offered to share. Anyway, we should definitely do a cooking/photo lesson and bundt exchange!

The Blonde Duck said... [Reply to comment]

This is my favorite cake. Ever.

kdiddy said... [Reply to comment]

my friends are suckers, so I'm taking a commenter's suggestion and freezing the rest.

30 Days of Bundt makes me crave more Bundt pans something fierce. But I have no place to store them so I'm abstaining. Sad face!

Unknown said... [Reply to comment]

Your Bundt cakes are AWESOME! Too many to choose from- but I'm thinking either this or the chocolate peanut butter. :)

Jo said... [Reply to comment]

I've tried a few of your recipes over the last week...What Fun, I love bundts too. When I was a kid my mom made a bundt that was chocolate with a tunnel of coconut in it...Yum...They used to have box mixes and I think it was a box mix. Any chance you have a recipe like that?

The Food Librarian said... [Reply to comment]

Jo, I haven't seen one with a coconut center...but then I'm not a fan of coconut so I probably would have breezed by that one! I think after the Tunnel of Fudge cake won the Pillsbury bake off (and made the Bundt popular), many people probably made "tunnel" cakes. Good luck finding that! - mary
