Best Salted Peanut Cake from Scratch

If you have never made a homemade Salted Peanut Cake, you must try this old fashioned cake recipe. I loved it when I was young, and still do today.

Top with whipped cream or my homemade frosting recipe. More homemade cake recipes above and at the bottom of the page.

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.
