This quick, easy topping will go over big with all the peanut butter lovers in your family. It's perfect on all flavors of cake but it's especially good on chocolate cake, cupcakes and brownies. This makes enough to top one 9" round or square cake or 12 cupcakes. It doubles nicely for a 13x9 cake. This can also be used as a filling between layers with or without the broiling step. It's a hit no matter what you do with it.
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky both work well)
- 1⁄4 cup shortening
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- Mix ingredients.
- Spread on cake.
- Broil 2-4 minutes until topping begins to bubble and starts to brown.
- Watch carefully to avoid burning.
What a great treat. I used this frosting on brownies. Wow! was it great. We really did enjoy this rich, subtle, smooth, creamy, sweet treat. It was quick and easy to make with great results. Thanks so much for sharing.
