Ingredients

For the cake:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup creamy honey roast peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 6 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped honey roasted peanuts

For the glaze:

  • 2 cups sifted confectioners sugar
  • 1/4 cup creamy honey roast peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons warm milk plus more if needed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped honey roasted peanuts

Instructions

For the cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and flour a 12-cup bundt or pan.
  2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl.
  3. Cream peanut butter and butter in a large bowl. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
  4. Add honey and beat to combine.
  5. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
  6. Add flour mixture and beat until just combined (do not over-mix). Stir in peanuts.
  7. Pour and spread batter evenly in prepared pan.
  8. Bake for 1 hour, 20 minutes, or until a toothpick or cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  9. Check cake at 1 hour. If browning too quickly on top, loosely cover cake with aluminum foil (place foil on top and do not seal edges).
  10. Cool cake in the pan for 12 minutes. Remove cake from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack.

For the glaze:

  1. Whisk together confectioners sugar, peanut butter, vanilla, salt, and milk until smooth. Add more milk if needed for desired consistency.
  2. Drizzle glaze over cake. Sprinkle chopped peanuts on top of cake.
