Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Cake!!

Custom Keto Diet

If you’re not a peanut butter fan, then this is probably not the cake for you. Because with this cake we’re talking about a moist peanut butter crumb topped by a creamy peanut butter frosting topped by a sprinkle of roasted peanuts. That’s like double peanut butter plus actual peanuts, which means it’s the perfect cake for people who love the sweet and salty spread. This cake does the sweet and salty thing justice and it feels like the kind of simple but delicious cake Grandma would have waiting to greet you as soon as you walked in the door.

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda

PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 9×13-inch pan with butter or nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large saucepan, heat the butter and water until it comes to a boil. Remove from heat and whisk in peanut butter and oil until smooth.
Let cool 2 minutes, then whisk in eggs, milk, and vanilla until well incorporated.
Add to dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40-45 minutes.
Set pan on a wire rack to cool while you make the frosting:
To a medium saucepan, add the butter, peanut butter, and milk and bring to a rolling boil.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, followed by powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time.
Whisk until smooth, reheating a bit if needed, then pour over cake. If frosting is stiff, add a bit more milk.
Working quickly, spread frosting evenly over cake and top with peanuts.
