Peanut butter and popcorn layer cake

That’s it, we want this peanut butter and popcorn cake with a fork, right now!

Is there any combination better than peanut butter and popcorn?! We’re not convinced there is, and when added to a layered chocolate cake we’re ALL over it!

Take a look at this recipe from the Dairy Diary 2019, and we promise you’ll never look back!

Ingredients

  • 175 g caster sugar
  • 275 g butter, softened
  • 40 g treacle
  • 3 medium free-range eggs

  • 225 g icing sugar
  • 15 g sweet and salty popcorn
  • toffee sauce for drizzling optional

Instructions

  2. Cream together the caster sugar, 175g (6oz) butter and treacle until light and fluffy. 

  3. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, each with 1 tbsp flour. 

  4. Fold in the remaining flour, cocoa and 2 tbsp milk, then spoon into the prepared tins. 

  5. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until springy to touch. Cool on a wire rack.
