Peanut Butter Cake

A deliciously simple Italian taste treat. A cross between cake and bread, it’s almost like a soft biscotti – so it’s great to dip in your morning coffee or any time!


4 cups flour
3 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 tsp. cinnamon
one-half cup oil
1 tsp. baking powder
1 medium lemon, zested


Make a mound with the flour on a board, creating a well in the center. Using your fingers, begin alternating the liquid and other dry ingredients into the well, mixing until all the ingredients are combined, adding additional flour as needed and kneading to make a smooth dough.

Divide into two parts and shape into fat rings. Brush the tops with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Place the coils on a buttered baking sheet and bake at 350 for about 40 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve with hot coffee and dunk slices of Ciambellone – it’s sort of like a soft biscotti.
