Yeah, yeah, I know nut butter is delicious straight from the jar, but have you tried it in cake form? Nah, neither had I until I knocked together this little beauty. It rates highly on my AF rating meter. It’s tasty AF, healthy AF and easy AF to make. So use your loaf and get baking this beauty stat.
