Apple Butter Bundt Cake with Peanut Butter Icing
One of my favorite snacks has always been apple slices dipped in peanut butter and it got me to thinking that peanut butter icing would be excellent on an apple butter spice cake. Sure enough, it is pretty dang delicious.
I haven't always had the best luck with cakes from scratch but this one is super simple and comes out moist and delicious. I'm always a little nervous making a bundt cake because I am never sure that I get the pan coated good enough. I used butter and the butter wrapper to grease the pan and it came out perfectly! Do you have a secret for getting the cake out clean? If so I'd love to hear it!
Musselman's Apple Butter gives this spice cake the perfect flavor and great texture. My family loved it and I will definitely be making it again and again. It is a great dessert to bake and take to get togethers with family and friends.
I topped it off with a few honey roasted peanuts and it also added a nice little crunch to the icing. Easter is just around the corner and if you are looking for a dessert to make, give this one a try.
My Caramel Apple Pie Cheesecake Shooters are also a good choice for a holiday dessert. They have been going a little crazy on social media this week!
We are also loving this Fresh Apple Cake recipe that my mom made so often when I was growing up. It's super simple and delicious! If you just can't get enough of the apple desserts, this Apple Upside Down Cake is over the top amazing. It's made from scratch and really easy to bake.
My husband was doing a little dirt work near the house the other day and he found a couple of orphaned baby rabbits. Oh my word they are so tiny. Tiny and CUTE! We brought them in an made them a little nest in a box with a few tea towels. We have been feeding them with a syringe and they are doing well.
I snapped a picture on instagram the first day we brought them in. I can't believe we found them and have been able to feed them and keep them alive.
It's not unusual for us to feed a bummed calf but there's just no resisting the baby bunnies! Happy spring, right? Well if I ever finish my dreaded bookwork for taxes, I will get a few more pictures, because I know y'all love baby critters as much as I do!
Until then, I leave you with this mega- delicious Apple Butter Bundt Cake, I know you are going to love it!

- In a mixer bowl combine butter and sugars on medium speed until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, mixing until combined.

- Meanwhile, prepare the icing.
- Add peanut butter, butter and sour cream to mixer bowl. Alternate powdered sugar and milk until mixture is smooth and well combined.
- Spread over cake (slightly warm or completely cooled- either is fine). Sprinkle the top with chopped honey roasted peanuts.
- Slice to serve.
I love this cake! Jerry would love it, too. I had missed that you found baby bunnies. Here's a word of advice from an animal rescuer. Did you know that baby bunnies don't know when to stop eating, and if you feed them too much they will pop? As in, not literally pop open, but pop inside and die? Yeah, I didn't either, until it happened to me. So, word of advice...just be careful how much you feed them (how do momma bunnies know, anyway?). Good luck and I hope that they make it!
Making my mouth water, perfect combination I love apple and peanut butter together , and the spices in the apple butter so good.
I'm living in Ireland and we don't have apple butter, is there anything I can substitute for it?
Hi Ursula, I would substitute apple sauce with a little cinnamon and nutmeg mixed in. I hope that helps.
I hate to tell you, but those babies might not have been orphaned. The moms stay away from the nest except for feedings at dawn and dusk so that predators can't find their nests. So unless you guys watched the nest for a day or so, it's possible you just didn't see mama.
