I just added peanut butter to my usual buttercream recipe.  It is very tasty.

I did the same thing.  I beat the butter and peanut butter together and then added the powdered sugar until it was the right consistency.  Then a bit of vanilla.  Tastes like peanut butter fudge!

AYummyyyy!!! What type of cupcake would go nice with it though? Just a plain sponge and let the peanut buttercream do the work? It sounds like a lovely idea, is it possible to pipe though? Also is it smooth peanut butter or crunchy people tend to use? :-)

I have a separate recipe from my normal buttercream for my peanut butter one.  I use only smooth peanut butter. Mine uses milk, and when I use water it's not as creamy and good.  But mine tastes like peanut butter fudge! I put mine on chocolate cakes/cupcakes mainly, but you can put it on yellow, white, etc.  Most people just like the peanut butter/chocolate combo.

When you mention mill, I've only used butter cream once as I'm new to this - I use 4oz butter, 8oz icing sugar and 3tsps of milk, would I have to change anything to incorporate the peanut butter, I'm fascinated with this :)

This is the recipe that I use, I think it might have been a Wilton that I got a long time ago:

 

  • 1/3 cup solid vegetable shortening
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 cups (approx. 1 lb.) confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 4-6 tablespoons milk
 
You just mix everything together.  When I use it under my rolled marshmallow fondant, and they say not to refrigerate that, I use water in the buttercream so it can sit out.  Also, If I know the cake will be sitting out for a while, I will put the water in.  I just made this last night and I used Skippy PB for the first time, and it was really creamy with it.  So maybe it was the peanut butter the last time that wasn't that great...Hope this helps

Thank you for this, when you say half a cup , what's the alternative measurements as I don't tend to use measuring cups. Might sound like a silly question but im a beginner, thank you :)

You use a scale then?  Just look up metric baking conversion and all kinds of charts come up.

Thank you I'll do that now, I didn't even know such a thing existed! :)

denetteb Posted 31 May 2013 , 6:52pm

Just noticed your location, if you are going to be hanging out on CC or any other baking forums a conversion chart will be your new best friend.

Theres a recipe in the recipe section called "Peanut Butter Dream" that I use.

You can buy measuring cups in any shop that sells baking stuff these days.  You can also get them in Tesco, Sainsbury's, Asda, etc....

ASearch this website for peanut butter dream buttercream recipe by indydeb. It's amazing!

I too have added peanut butter to buttercream. That works well. I recently used this as a filling in my son's graduation cake. I used the double chocolate cake from Epicurious with this peanut butter frosting as filling and white buttercream. It's very rich but good, perfect when you're cutting thin slices.

This recipe is so awesome.  I use it as a filling for chocolate cakes and chop up Reese's cups and add them to the filling.
