My boyfriend asked for a chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting for his birthday. His mother used to make one every year, but he was a little wary of letting someone else make it, convinced it wouldn't be as good. After one slice of his cake, he declared "my" version better than his mother's. Now he wants me to make it for EVERY occasion, and I actually don't mind, it's so easy. I used about two cups of powdered sugar and doubled the peanut butter, which works well if you're using a good creamy peanut butter. I started with two cups of powdered sugar and one cup of peanut butter, but it was still mostly sweet and not terribly peanut buttery. True peanut butter fans say they are glad I made that little change.
