My favorite kinds of cakes to make are the low-fuss variety. I don’t always need lots of layers and thick frosting. A good, simple cake is more than fine with me.
This cake is a perfect example of a delicious cake without all the fuss. It’s simple to make and full of amazing flavor!
The cake itself is a simple one made with a good dose of peanut butter. I used crunchy peanut butter to get those crunchy bites of peanuts in the cake. Creamy peanut butter will work just fine, too.
That’s topped off with a cream cheese frosting partially sweetened with maple syrup. The combination of peanut butter and maple is a recent favorite of mine. I just love what those flavors do for each other!
This is the kind of cake that you can serve straight from the pan. Just cut a slice whenever you get a craving. It works well for an afternoon snack or for a simple dessert.
