Peanut Butter Frosting Recipe Needed..

Our school cafeteria used to serve chocolate sheet cake with peanut butter frosting. I've looked for this recipe for years. My attempts to duplicate this frosting have been spectacularly unsuccessful. Enough so that I have given up all hope. Until now?

Don't know if this is what you are looking for, hon. I found it in a book of "Hershey's Best Cakes". (Haven't tried it).Since Hershey's has been around a while, maybe it's similar to the one the school used:

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

1 cup milk; 3 Tbl. all purpose flour; 1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter (they specify Reese's - use your judgement); 1/2 cup shortening (I'd use butter); 1 cup sugar; 1 tsp. vanilla extract; dash salt

In small saucepan, gradually stir milk into flour. Cook over low heat stirring constantly, until very thick. Transfer to small mixer bowl; place plastic wrap directly on surface. Cool to room temperature. Add peanut butter, shortening, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Beat on high speed of electric mixer until mixture becomes fluffy and sugar is completely dissolved. About 3 cups of frosting.

If you try it, give us a review. I'll look to see if I can find others. Good luck!

cakerecipe.com has a recipe for "Mr. Goodbar Frosting" which they say is "just like the frosting used on Texas sheet cakes". Also, a "Peanut Butter Frosting", as well as 16 other peanut butter recipes.Check it out!
