I've been craving chocolate and peanut butter lately, so tonight I decided to make the "old standby" - chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. The cake was in the oven before I realized I had no powdered sugar for the frosting. Tactical error on my part. :(
I found a recipe online for peanut butter frosting without the powdered sugar and decided to give it a try. It turned out beautifully. I'm not a marshmallow fan, but you wouldn't even know it's in there! The best part is you don't even have to wait for the cake to cool - which I find the most frustrating part of baking.
My craving has been satisfied! Momma and baby are very happy. :)
Peanut Butter Frosting (without Powdered Sugar)
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used a little bit more)
1/2 cup marshmallows (I used marshmallow creme)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine milk, sugar and butter in saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; add peanut butter and marshmallow. Stir in vanilla. Pour immediately over warm cake.
