I have a
slight major addiction to peanut butter. And so I decided to try my hand at peanut butter
cupcakes and peanut butter frosting with an EASTER twist.
6 tablespoons butter- room temp
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 1/3 firmly packed brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350deg F.
Mix butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar with electric mixer on medium until fluffy (4 min).
Add eggs, beat well, mix in vanilla.
In separate bowl mix flour, baking powder, and salt.
Add dry ingredients to mixer and alternate with Milk, mix well!
Fill cupcakes 3/4 full and bake for 16 min or until tooth pick is inserted and removed clean.
Cool and now time to FROST
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
4 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
10 tbsp milk
cream peanut butter till fluffy (2 min)
beat in confectioners sugar and vanilla
add milk to desired consistency
I add my frosting to a bag to frost its less mess and oh so pretty as seen here.
Now time to decorate and ENJOY.
