Update: The exhibition is over, click here to see the winners!
Hear ye, hear ye! The Great Peanut Butter Exhibition has returned! This time even sooner than usual! In conjunction with Foodaphilia, I am proud to present the latest and greatest in peanut butter blogging!
The theme for this PBE is cake/cupcakes! What’s you’re favorite way to incorporate peanut butter into a cake, in the batter? on top? a surprise filling? Submit your recipe following the guidelines below and we’ll be rounding up all submissions and choosing a Top 3. We decided to put out the call for entries earlier to allow for more baking and experimentation. The deadline is June 30th @ Noon (PST), a full 18 days from now, which gives you 3 full weekends to demonstrate your expertise with our favorite tan-colored paste and flex those baking muscles! The Top 3 will be prominently featured, but all entries will be displayed. The winners will receive a lovely badge to show off their award-winning recipe!
The real prizes from the previous Peanut Butter Exhibitions were the recipes themselves, we loved them all! We’re looking forward to another great batch of recipes to round up! The category is more focused than last time, but I think we’ll generate some excitement and, of course, some excellent recipes! We’re real excited for this round, so put on those thinking caps and get in the kitchen!
I don’t have any cake recipes to show (yet), but what I do have are some flavored peanut butters. These homemade peanut butter varieties represent some of the best combinations of ingredients with peanut butter, so check these out for some inspiration:
Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter – milk or white chocolate can be used too.
Honey Nut Roasted Peanut Butter – classic combination.
Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter – hands down, my favorite flavor.
Apple Pie Peanut Butter – ingenious combo if I do say so myself.
Maple Peanut Butter – awesome combo, very earthy.
Now let’s get those spoons-a-churnin’ and make mom (and me) proud! Read on for the details…
