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.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • ⅓ cup cream

Cooking Directions

  1. 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.

  1. I thought this was very good. I made it according to the recipe. (Please don't mark recipes down when you make a bunch of changes in its preparation.) I thought it did taste like peanut butter cup filling although maybe not as strongly flavored of peanut butter as those are. I used my frosting over - Read more ...
  2. 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 Glaze also from this site over the cake. Delicious.
  3. 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 edible status. I added some regular, granulated sugar and vanilla and I had to add - Read more ...
  4. This was amazing. I follwed the advice of others and adjusted the recipe for sweetness and over butteriness. Here's what I came up with: 1 and 1/4 cup peanut butter (room temp) 1 stick butter (at room temp) 1 and 1/3 cup confectioners sugar (added slowly and mixing after each time) 4 Tbs cream. What - Read more ...
  5. After modifying this recipe in the following ways, this was BY FAR, one of the most awesome homemade frostings I have ever made or tasted! AMAZING on chocolate cake (or cupcakes, as I made). The recipe I used was as follows: 1 cup creamy NON-GENERIC peanut butter (the peanut butter taste will only be as - Read more ...
  6. This is an excellent recipe as it is but I found that by adding a tsp. of vanilla it gave it a more pronounced peanut butter flavor.
  7. Ok with modifications this is 5 stars but the original recipe is probably only worth 3! So 4 for a compromise. IF you use 2 cups confectioner's sugar and 1 1/2 cups peanut butter you'll get a very peanut butter flavored icing; 2 cups sugar with 1 cup pb would make a milder one though - Read more ...
  8. I have been on the hunt for the perfect peanut butter frosting and from reading the reviews for this I thought I had found it. However my search will continue. I was not impressed with this recipe at all. I needed to add MUCH more milk (I had no cream in the house) than the - Read more ...
  9. I reduced the sugar to 2 cups and added 1/2 cup more peanut butter. This was good fluffy frosting. It had just the right peanut butter flavor. Quick and easy.
