Peanut Butter Filling

Our birthday boy wanted a chocolate cake but with a peanut butter filling.  I had never tried that one before.  However, I was totally up for the challenge since chocolate and peanut butter is a downright win-win combination!

I found this delicious filling recipe and look forward to using it again in the future.

Peanut Butter Filling


Ingredients:

1 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
8 TBSP milk

Directions:

1.  Beat the peanut butter and vanilla on medium speed for 2 minutes.  Add a cup of  the confectioners at a time, slowly beating in-between until smooth.  Add the milk, a little at a time, beating until it reaches a spreadable consistency.  (Note: It still will remain thick.)

2.  Evenly spread the filling over the bottom of the cake using an icing spatula to mold it into shape.  (Note: this is not the consistency of butter cream frosting so you need to manipulate it a little differently.)  Top with the remaining cake.

 




Oh my goodness.   So delicious!

Enjoy!

  3. Hi Patty! Oh my goodness, this looks so AWESOME! I think the spreading of the peanut butter on a fragile chocolate cake would be challenging...but really worth it. I love peanut butter cups, so this would be a welcome addition to my cake making.
    Hope he had a wonderful birthday!
