In complete honesty, this is all about the icing. The cake it just something to put this peanut butter icing on....because it's just not socially acceptable to sit and eat icing by the spoonful. At least not out in public! :) There is nothing that goes better with peanut butter than chocolate...so I made chocolate cake.....from a box.....that I amped up a little. Chocolate Cake 1 Betty Crocker Devil's food Gluten Free Cake Mix1 C. Buttermilk2 Eggs 1/2 C. Margarine, melted1/2 C. Applesauce1/2 C. Milk Chocolate Chips Combine the above ingredients and bake according to the instructions on the box (350 deg. for 30-40min). Frost a cooled cake with the peanut butter frosting.
1/4 c. butter, softened
1/4 c. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. peanut butter
3 tbsp milk
2 c. confectioner’s sugar
Cream together the first three ingredients and then gradually add sugar and milk until you reach desired consistency, The milk can be left out for a stiffer icing, or if the milk makes the icing too thin, additional sugar can be added. Spread on cooled cake.
I hope you enjoy this cake. I can see this frosting recipe going on some brownies, cuppeycakes, and maybe even cookies in the future. YUMMERS!
