Cookie Butter Bundt Cake with Cookie Butter Ganache

Cookie Butter Bundt Cake with Cookie Butter Ganache

Ahhh, Trader Joe’s. How much I love thee. Sure, I love you for your abundant produce and healthy whole grains, but do you want to know what I love most about you? Your Cookie Butter. The sinfully rich cookie spread that might taste great on toast if it ever actually landed on the bread instead of from the knife straight to my mouth. I’m not a patient woman.

And I’m fairly certain your intent was for people to use it as a spread. Perhaps as a dip for apple slices. But you know what? I thought it would be even better mixed together with some flour, sugar and some eggs, baked in a bundt pan and then topped with a rich chocolate ganache. Because that’s how Cookie Butter should roll. Word.

If for some very sad reason you do not have a Trader Joe’s nearby, you can easily order Cookie Butter online! Thank God for Amazon!

  1. Oh My God! Melanie, this is a wonderful recipe that I can’t wait to taste as soon as humanly possible. Can I give the recipe 5 stars before I even make it and taste it?? It doesn’t matter, I will make this and I will taste it soon. Well done!

    • Ha! Come back and tell me what you think after you make it. You can tell me then if you think it’s star worthy. My kids have all had seconds which means they give it their seal of approval. 🙂

  2. Holy Mother of God! This is a cake! I’m salivating just looking at it and I want a slice now. Brilliant!

    • Thanks Karista! I’m sort of a Cookie Butter addict. I have all kinds of plans for my Cookie Butter and none of them require bread, lol.

  3. And yes, sadly I have no Trader Joe’s anywhere near me. But dulce de leche ganache would do the trick too, won’t it?

    • Oh my stars. That would work for me! Dulce de leche anything works for me! Welcome to my blog! I see you have one too. I’ll have to pop in to say hi. Thanks for coming by!

  4. Hi Melanie –
    Very cool use of an unusual product!
    To clarify, there are no nuts or peanuts in TJ’s Cookie Butter. It does have the “May contain…” warning on it, but peanut butter isn’t an ingredient.

  5. This sounds amazing! It’s such a shame that I don’t have a piece of it to go with my coffee this morning. My poor cup is so lonely!

    Thank you, Melanie, for giving me a reason to drive up into Atlanta to visit Trader Joe’s. I love, love, love that place, and just wish that they would open one a tad bit closer!

    • I’m so happy to motivate you to go to Trader Joe’s. The only motivation I need is running out of Cookie Butter. I wish I was kidding.

  6. Melanie, try Cookie Butter Rice Krispy Treats! Tip: Blend in the cookie butter after the marshmallows, when the heat has subsided a bit (becomes brittle, if put in too soon)…I also add 1.5x the amount of butter to my RKTs…nothing better than BUTTER..unless it’s COOKIE BUTTER!

  7. Well, I am happy and sad to find this posting. Happy, in that perhaps this is a sign that Trader Joe’s will continue to stock Cookie Butter (or as I call it “Crack in a Jar”). Sad, in that other people may actually start vying for the limited quantity of Cookie Butter from my local store. It’s not always there, so when it is, I actually buy up the lot and hoard it. Sorry. But I do.

    If the word gets out, the supply may not keep up with demand, and when TJs gets a shipment, hoards of Cookie-Butter-users might descend sparking an actual Cookie Butter riot. Then I’d have to go all “survivalist” on them, and bring out my guns and camo to get my share of the dwindling rations.

    • Yes!! Crack in a jar. And I’m just like you. A Cookie Butter hoarder when I can find it. An unapologetic one at that. By the way, I’m an expert shot. Hope you have some skills with them there firearms. 😉

  8. omg! i think i must move in! i think i will not bring clothes as i will definitely need to buy bigger pants. i think when i move out, i will have to buy 2 airline seats for the ride home. gonna try this one, so far i am 2 for2 thumbs way up!

  9. How could I not know about this marvelous creation from Trader Joes? I love their peanut butter already. I will have to go and search out this cookie butter . . . And I was trying so hard to give up sugar! : )

  10. It was great meeting you last weekend at Mixed! Also, this looks incredible. Love cookie butter.

  11. Patricia @ ButterYum says:

    Hi there, I just popped this into the oven. Is the batter supposed to fill the pan almost tot the top?


  13. hi! am wondering if there are any adjustments i would need to make for high altitude… cannot wait to eat this entire thing myself! thank you!

  14. That’s such a pretty slice of cake
