Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY TO ALL FATHERS IN THE WORLD!

Today is Father’s day in Sweden, so I’m celebrating it with my daughter and husband.

A mother is a very special person but father also as special. And I can’t choose which one I love more. Because I love my parents equally.

This cake is also special, although I used ready cake mix (yes, I’m that kind of person who loves cake mix too, good to have them sometimes). This cake mix is suitable for vegetarian (not easy to find food with suitable for vegetarian label here), so it means I can eat it too. And because of that, I can only share the frosting with you today.

Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 200g unsalted butter
  • 12 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla essence / pinch of vanilla powder

 

How to:

  1. Place butter in a mixing bowl. Using hand mixer, beat for 2 to 3 minutes until pale and fluffy.
  2. Add peanut butter. Beat until incorporated.
  3. Add icing sugar slowly while mixing.
  4. Add milk and vanilla, mix well.

 

I also want to add a short poem for my Dad, the best Dad in the world, I’m so lucky to have a father like my Dad. He’s the best. I ♥ you, Ayah :)

 

He never looks for praises
He’s never one to boast
He just goes on quietly working
For those he loves the most
His dreams are seldom spoken
His wants are very few
And most of the time his worries
Will go unspoken too
He’s there…. A firm foundation
Through all our storms of life
A sturdy hand to hold to
In times of stress and strife
A true friend we can turn to
When times are good or bad
One of our greatest blessings,
The man that we call Dad.
