There are many different types of filling for cakes, but one of my all-time favorites is peanut butter, especially when it's in a chocolate cake! I mean, who doesn't like peanut butter and chocolate?! Most of the cakes/cupcakes I make are filled with this scrumptious peanut butter filling. It is very easy to make, but be careful, because it's addicting!
Peanut Butter Filling
3 Tbsp butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2/3 cup powdered sugar
In the bowl of a mixer, beat butter until soft and fluffy; add peanut butter and mix well. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating until well-incorporated.
|I think I quadrupled this batch, so the quantities in the pictures are different than those for which the recipe calls.|
Use as a filling for cakes, cupcakes, or just eat by the spoonful. I have to mention that this filling tastes amazing when placed between two peanut butter cookies (my dad will serve as a witness - it was his idea to take the cookies sitting on my counter and add the peanut butter filling I also had sitting on my counter). I imagine this would also taste scrumptious if you mixed it in with some vanilla ice cream, chocolate chips, and chocolate syrup. Yum! Good thing I don't have any ice cream in my house, otherwise, I'd probably be eating this right now!
