FOR THE CAKE
1 box vanilla cake mix, plus ingredients called for on box
1 1/2 c. strawberry jam
1 c. peanut butter
FOR THE FROSTING
1 (8-oz.) block cream cheese, softened
1 1/4 c. peanut butter
2 1/2 c. powdered sugar
2 tbsp. heavy cream
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Toasted chopped peanuts, for garnish
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9”-x-13” baking pan with cooking spray.
Prepare baking mix according to package directions. Pour into prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean, 30 minutes. Let cool completely.
Using the bottom of a wooden spoon, poke holes all over cake in rows.
Place jam and peanut butter into 2 separate bowls and microwave until loose, about 10 seconds. Pour jam over every other row of holes. Pour peanut butter over remaining rows.
Make frosting: In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat cream cheese and peanut butter together until smooth. Add powdered sugar and beat until no lumps remain, then add vanilla and heavy cream.
Frost cake with peanut butter frosting and top with chopped peanuts.
