This Homemade Peanut Butter Icing Takes Just 8 Minutes To Make

Very few desserts are not improved by the addition of peanut butter and Stella Parks of Serious Eats has the perfect frosting to let you get peanut buttery goodness all over your cakes, biscuits and muffins as quickly as possible.

The recipe (which you can read in full in the link below) is based on an American buttercream — which is just butter and icing sugar mixed together — and blended with creamy peanut butter, a little honey, vanilla and salt. The real star of the recipe however is the organic icing sugar. It’s not its “organic-ness” that makes it special, but rather the fact that it’s usually made with tapioca starch, making it finer and silkier.

Mix all of these tasty things together and you have a super tasty, super smooth, super quick frosting to spread on every damn baked good you can get your hands on.
