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.

2. Mix a ½ cup of the sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon together in a small bowl. Set aside.

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.
