Peanut butter icing is another one of those recipes my mom made all the time. Originally, this post was supposed to be called chocolate cake with peanut butter icing. It is a comfort food for me. My mom was making this long before it was a trendy “new” idea.
One time, we went to my grandma’s house for a family dinner. We left the house in a rush and the chocolate cake with peanut butter icing got left behind. We were too close to Grandma’s and too late to retrieve it.
When we got home that evening, the cake was missing…….. Cakes don’t normally grow legs and walk through the front door.
Later the same evening, the cake was found in the family room, half eaten sitting next to the telephone. Phones were corded and rotary dial back then. Apparently, even thieves like this combination.
