Peanut Butter Frosting


"If you like peanut butter you'll love this frosting, great on chocolate cakes but for a real peanut butter experience try it on a peanut butter cake. If you don't have cream, you may substitute milk."

  1. In a large bowl, beat butter and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in 1/2 of the confectioner's sugar. Mix in 1/4 cup of the cream. Beat in the remaining confectioners' sugar. If necessary, add a little more cream or milk until the frosting reaches a good spreading consistency. Makes enough to frost one 2 layer 9 inch cake or one 9x13 inch cake.

Very rich and creamy. Used milk instead of cream and only needed 3 cups of powdered sugar. I spread it on Dark Chocolate Cake II from this site, chilled it,and then drizzled Satiny Chocolate Gla...

Wow, this was one of the most disappointing recipes that I have ever tried from this site. I really struggled not to rate it lower. I ended up having to doctor this up a ton to get it to an edib...
