Help! What kind of frosting would be good on this cake?


Recommended Posts

PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE CAKE

 

1 3/4 c. sifted cake flour

3/4 tsp. soda

3/4 tsp. salt

1 c. sugar

2 tbsp. shortening

3 tbsp. peanut butter

2 squares chocolate, melted

1 c. whole milk

1 tsp. vanilla

 

Sift flour once, measure. Add soda, salt and sugar. Sift together 3 times. Cream shortening and peanut butter until well blended. Add melted chocolate and mix well. Add sifted dry ingredients, alternating with milk and vanilla. Stir until all the flour is dampened. Beat vigorously for 1 minute. Turn into two 8-inch layer greased pans or loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until done.

 

 

Also, the one review this cake got said it "didn't rise much and maybe needs eggs". Should I add a couple eggs? And I don't have cake flour, would all-purpose work?

 

I was thinking a cream cheese frosting might be good. What do you think? Thanks!

Cake flour gives the cake a moister consistency. Using AP flour will make it a little dryer/tougher. But I would and have made this substitution when I did not have cake flour. I guess it depends on your expectations.

 

As far as icing - I like the idea of cream cheese or maybe a peanut butter or chocolate icing?

 

Incidentally, my ds 5 is allergic to eggs and I am always looking for eggless cake recipes. Thanks for posting this one! We love peanut butter and chocolate!
