I love peanut butter, especially those with chunky peanuts in them. I am so glad I do not have Arachibutyrophobia (fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth). Here’s one of my favourite frosting recipes. I use it for my chocolate cupcakes, it is always a perfect combination.
Source: Wikipedia (Sigh, I couldn’t find a photo of the frosting I made)
Peanut Butter Frosting (Serves 6)
3 tbsp butter, softened to room temperature
1/3 cup chunky peanut butter
1 tbsp milk, or as needed (add this gradually till you achieve your preferred consistency)
3/4 confectioner’s sugar
1. Place butter and peanut butter into a medium bowl and beat with an electronic mixer.
2. Gradually mix in the confectioner’s sugar till it starts to get thick.
3. Add milk and mix well until all of the sugar is mixed in and frosting is thick and spreadable.
4. Beat for at least 3 minutes for it to get fluffier.
5. Spread onto cake.
Anyway if you’re really into baking with peanut butter, here are more recipes for you from Skippy.
Here is one weird fact I found from another blog about peanut butter. You cannot really find it in the UK except in certain specialty stores. Is this really true?
