♥ Peanut Butter Cake

















One of my many projects today was to make you my peanut butter bundt cake with vanilla glaze and peanut butter drizzle. This cake is so incredibly moist and delicious...f you like peanut butter you don't miss this one.

Peanut Butter Cake

1 cup plain yogurt
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 ¼ cup brown sugar, packed

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease and lightly flour your bundt pan. Using a fork or a whisk, combine the yogurt, eggs, vanilla, and maple syrup in a medium bowl. In another medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt with a fork or whisk. In the bowl of a mixer or a large mixing bowl, add the butter, brown sugar, and peanut butter. Using a mixer, cream for about 3 minutes on medium-high. With the mixer on low, add a third of the dry mixture to the creamed mixture, then half of the wet mixture, then another third of the dry mixture, then the last of the wet mixture, and finally the last of the dry mixture. Scrape the sides of your bowl between additions.

Turn the mixer on medium-high and beat the mixture for about 1 minute. Scrape the batter into your prepared bundt pan and bake for about 40-45 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool the rest of the way. 

Vanilla Glaze 

1 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted                                                                           

1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons whole milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Stir together sugar and salt in a small bowl. Whisk together butter, milk, and vanilla, and stir into sugar until mixture forms a smooth paste. Keep glaze at room temperature until ready to drizzle over cake. Before using, whisk until smooth.

Peanut Butter Drizzle

1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 tablespoon milk
1/4 cup powdered sugar

In a small bowl, mix peanut butter, 1 tablespoon milk and the powdered sugar. Drizzle over cake.

NOTE: For the cake in the photo I used a 2 small 6 cup bundt pans, which was a perfect size to share one and keep one. But you can make a full size cake using a 12 cup bundt pan. Here is the link for the
