Yummy Peanut Butter Cakes & Pies
Peanut butter is such versatile ingredient in recipes – it’s not just for making PB&J sandwiches! I put out the call to my blogging tribe and received a whopping 120+ recipes that use peanut butter! They ranged from sauces, dips, energy balls & bites, cookies, bars & brownies, and other sweet treats, through to savory dishes too. Plus of course these peanut butter cakes & pies that I am sharing with you today.
With so many recipes I decided to split the list and make a series of peanut butter recipes for you. Make sure you get the updates so that you don’t miss out! ⬇️⬇️⬇️
Always wanting to give you value for your time spent on The Purple Pumpkin Blog, I decided to put the recipes for cakes, cheesecakes, cupcakes, and pies all in the one post, as I didn’t have quite enough of each for their own. This round up has a yummy variety desserts, and includes a bonus recipe from yours truly at the end!

Peanut allergies are very real, and can be very scary too. If you suffer from such an allergy, or know someone who does, then of course these peanut butter cookie recipes won’t be for you. However, many of the recipes I’ve included can substitute the peanut butter for other nut butters (assuming you do not have an allergic reaction to those).
There are many more nut butters on the market these days including: hazelnut, almond, cashew, and macadamia nut butters. I’ve also seen pecan, pistachio and brazil nut butters (but I’ve not tried out the latter three).
If you know someone with a nut allergy, always check with them what nuts they can have, never assume – it’s always better to be safe, than sorry.
As with all of my roundups, there are ideas from my blog as well as from lots of fab blogs from around the world. I have made all of links to these peanut butter cakes and pies open in a new window so that you don’t lose your place on the list. The list corresponds with the photo above – so that you can get an idea what the finished dish should look like. Enjoy!

I really don’t like it when I don’t have a recipe to add to one of my round ups, however, I do have a recipe for a Chocolate & Peanut Ice-Cream Cake that I made for my son, brother, and sister’s birthday (they share birthdays very close together, so we often celebrate them all at the same time!)
It doesn’t contain peanut butter, but it does contain peanuts, so I’ve decided to put this here. And I guess technically, you could add peanut butter if you wanted to – like maybe giving the brownie layer a spread of crunchy peanut butter instead of peanuts, and then top with caramel… then ice-cream… then chocolate sauce…*drools* OR, you could use peanut butter ice cream, or a peanut butter sauce. Or if you’re feeling in the baking mood, make some peanut butter brownies – it’s all good!
It is so easy to put together, requires zero baking (unless you bake your own brownies for the cake, but I just bought some ready made from the supermarket), and looks scrummy – don’t you agree?
