Salted Peanut Cake Recipe


1/2 cup homemade unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup homemade buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
1-3/4 cup flour
1 cup salted peanuts, shelled and ground with skins on

PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees. Lightly spray a 9x12" baking pan with vegetable oil; set aside.

Sift the dry ingredients together. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and ground peanuts (save some for the frosting); mixing well.

Alternate adding the dry ingredients with the buttermilk; ending with the buttermilk. Spread evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Top with your favorite frosting after the cake cools and sprinkle the reserved nuts over the top. I like my Whipped Cream Frosting.
