Nkatie cake, also known as peanut cake is a nutty sugary Ghanaian snack. Nkatie cake is usually shaped in the form of a candy bar made with groundnuts or peanuts and melted sugar. A delight for both young and old, nkate cake is groundnut but not as you know it. You finna try this recipe. Get that crunch, fam!

Let us begin!



  • Place the groundnuts in a Ziploc bag and break them into smaller pieces with a rolling pin. If you have a food processor you can use the pulse function. 
  • Pour the oil on the board and rub it all over. Oil the rolling pin as well. 
  • In a heavy bottom pan, melt the sugar over low heat until all the sugar is dissolved and the colour is caramel. 
  • Add the crushed groundnuts to the caramel and stir quickly until both are properly combined.
  • Immediately turn the nkatie cake on the oiled board and shape it into a rectangle, making sure to work quickly. 
  • Using a sharp knife, divide the rectangle into diagonals and leave it to cool.
