Peanut Butter Frosting

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting | Homan at Home


I made a chocolate cake, but unfortunately didn’t gauge my cocoa powder well. I didn’t have enough to make my standard chocolate buttercream, so I improvised. Nothing goes better with chocolate than peanut butter, and this light frosting complemented my cake perfectly!

Frosting can be tricky – I spent years thinking I was just really bad at making it. My frosting was always drippy or goopy, and even if it tasted good, it always looked a little sketchy. Years ago, my mom showed me how to make the absolute best buttercream frosting ever (you can find the super-secret recipe here). Since then, I’ve been creating frostings based on that recipe. This peanut butter frosting adds the delicious nutty flavor to a frosting that holds its shape, pipes well, and crusts.

  1. Thank you for sharing this! Peanut butter is one of my all time favorite foods. I am pinning this so I make it for our next birthday.

  2. I use this on my chocolate cupcakes but I also add 2-3 tbsp maple syrup, and instead of milk, I use 2 tbsp whipping cream.

  3. Can’t wait to try this recipe, I’ll be using it for my son’s birthday cake! Just wondering if you know it makes enough to cover and go in between two 8in round cakes or if I’ll need to double it?
