This recipe was good, but not the golden color I was expecting, and the peanut butter seemed to get lost in the sugar and butter. I have never made peanut butter frosting, but my mother used to make it all the time for chocolate cakes. I guess I was expecting her frosting (I can't find a recipe that she might have used), but this wasn't it. Most of the other recipes I found were basically the same ingredients, but had twice the sugar in them. My mom's go-to cookbook was always the red plaid Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book, but there is no recipe for peanut butter frosting in there either. Perhaps since it's been over 40 years since I had her frosting, I have forgotten what it really tastes like. This recipe just didn't have that great peanut butter flavor I was hoping for. I used Jiff creamy. Has anyone used another peanut butter that turned out great?
