Peanut Butter Cupcakes

I cannot believe that is has been almost 2 months since my last post. A lot has been going on this summer, good and bad but I have still been baking, just not writing about it. Yet again I am now vowing to get through my backlog of recipes and share them with you!

Today’s recipe is inspired for my recent love (and by love I mean LOVE) of Resse’s Peanut Butter Cups and sadly as they are not so easy to get here in Germany, I have been turning to alternatives to get my fix! So the recipe I am sharing today is for Peanut Butter Cupcakes!

Ingredients

  • 75g of Plain Flour
  • 25g of Cocoa Powder
  • 100g of Sugar
  • 1tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1/2tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 175g of Butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • 75g of Icing Sugar
  • 75g of Peanut Butter

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C
  2. Prepare your bun tin with your paper cake cases for later
  3. Sift the sugar into a bowl and add 100g of the butter then cream together until smooth
  4. In a separate bowl sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda together
  5. Then slowly add the dry mixture to the creamed butter mix until crumbly
  6. Add the 2 eggs and whisk until smooth
  7. Pour the mixture evenly into the cake cases
  8. Bake in the oven for 16-18 minutes
  9. Once cooked allow to cool thoroughly
  10. Once cool sift the icing sugar into a bowl
  11. Then add the final 75g of butter and cream until smooth
  12. Add the peanut butter to the mix and stir until combined
  13. Use a pallet knife to decorate the top of the cupcakes with the frosting
  14. Then enjoy!

These Peanut Butter Cupcakes were really delicious. They are pretty sickly and I recommend only eating one at a time, which basically means I was successful at creating something to imitate the peanut butter cups as I would say the same for them!
