INGREDIENTS

Butter Cake:
2 tablespoons JUSTIN’S® Cinnamon Almond Butter
½ cup + ¼ cup Granulated Sugar, divided
1 tablespoon Cinnamon
5 cups Self-Rising Flour
2 cups Milk (Whole or 2% are best)
½ cup Unsalted Butter, melted

Glaze:
2 cups Powdered Sugar
2 tablespoons Butter, melted
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 tablespoon Milk
Purple, Green, and Gold Sprinkles

DIRECTIONS

For the Butter Cake:
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

3. Whisk the flour and the remaining ¼ cup of sugar together in a large bowl.

4. Add the milk and 4 tablespoons of the melted butter together in a medium bowl.

5. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and stir until a dough forms.

6. Place the dough onto a floured work surface.

7. Sprinkle with more flour, and knead until smooth, sprinkling with more flour as needed to prevent sticking.

8. With a floured rolling pin, roll the dough into a 24 x 10-inch-long rectangle about ¼ inch thick.

9. Brush 2 tablespoons of the melted butter onto the surface of the dough.

10. Sprinkle it evenly with the cinnamon-sugar mixture, and drizzle with JUSTIN’S® Cinnamon Almond Butter.

11. Slice the dough lengthwise into 10 long strips.

12. Fold each strip in half (“hamburger-style”).

13. Twist each strip in a spiral, shape into a circle, and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

14. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

For the Glaze:
1. To make the glaze, mix the powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, and milk together until smooth.

2. Spread or pour immediately over the cooled king cakes and decorate with colored sprinkles.

They’re just as sweet and indulgent as your Grandma’s recipe, but with a little something extra that will have everyone asking for your secret ingredient.

Peanut Butter Banana Pudding with whipped cream and peanut butter drizzle with cookies on a wooden top with white background

Sweet & Salty Almond Butter Coconut Delights scattered in a white background with Justin's peanut butter jar

Coconuts are fuzzy and hard to eat. But, the truth is that if you can find a real big rock and crack one open, you’ll get real wet from coconut milk. Nobody told me and now my shirt is ruined. Anyways, if you take that delicious coconut meat from the inside, you’ve got yourself one of the delicious ingredients for my Sweet & Salty Almond Butter Coconut Delights. Whip up a batch tonight and don’t forget to bring a towel!

Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Dessert Hummus on a clear glass with strawberries in the background

I was recently informed that eating JUSTIN’S® Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Butter straight out of the jar with a spoon is “not ideal for sharing.” Bold of them to assume I wanted to share. If I did want to share, I would whip up this Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Dessert Hummus. It’s easy to make, delicious, and perfect for a crowd.
