September is my Dad’s birthday month, he is no longer with us but I still like to celebrate his birthday with his favorite cake ~~ chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. It seems to be a favorite with the rest of the family too!
I often hear a lot of people comment on how difficult it is to make peanut butter frosting or they just can’t find a good recipe.
I think it’s quite easy. It doesn’t have to be difficult, challenging or fancy. Just peanut butter, butter, confectioners sugar and a little milk.
1 cup creamy peanut butter, although I do a heaping cup!
1/2 stick butter , softened to room temperature
4 cups confectioners sugar
6-7 T of milk
First I cream together the peanut butter and butter. Then I alternate the confectioners sugar and milk, starting with the sugar. The amount of milk also depends on the consistency that you prefer your frosting.
This recipe yields about 3 cups of frosting.
Happy Birthday Dad!! XOXO
