Peanut Butter Frosting

It was birthday time at our home recently--the birthday girl requested a chocolate cake.  We decided to add a little something special by filling between the three layers of chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting.  Sadly, even though I make a lot of cakes I don't try other frosting recipes often enough.  Wow--this recipe is surely a keeper!
The cake had three layers with the peanut butter frosting on the inside and a chocolate buttercream on the outside.  We added some Reese's Peanut Butter Cups around the bottom for a special treat.
Peanut Butter Frosting
1/2 cup butter
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 Tbs. milk
2 cups powdered sugar

Beat the softened butter in the bowl of an electric mixer.  Add the peanut butter and cream together until fluffy.  Add the milk and powdered sugar alternately and beat until combined and fluffy.

Notes: This made a generous filling for this cake with some left over.  It would easily frost a pan of brownies or frost several cupcakes.  I found it on allrecipes.com titled Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting.  It had over 1000 reviews and was rated 4 1/2 stars (out of 5).

  1. Wow! That looks delicious. I especially love how you used the peanut butter cups at the base of the cake.
