Like Blueberry Muffins? You're Going to Love This Weird Spicy Cake

June 30, 2016

It's hard to beat a good blueberry muffin. It's a summertime classic that sits squarely in the realm of breakfast foods despite not having a single ingredient to nudge it into the wholesome category—okay, aside from the berries. A muffin is basically an individually-sized breakfast cake.

For those times when you want to nudge a blueberry muffin even further into the dessert category, Blueberry Cake with Peanut Streusel is the cake for you. Granted, the recipe name seems​ normal enough, so if you're wondering where the "weird" claim comes in, just wait—it's two-fold: The cake's glaze includes peanut butter and lime juice and zest, and the streusel topping includes cayenne pepper. And somehow it all works together—really well.

Give it a shot—swap conventional for crazy:
