I made these cupcakes to wish my coworkers a Happy Friday. The recipe for the peanut butter cupcakes can be found on Martha Stewart Living magazine February 2009 issue or online below:
The frosting is really rich so I didn’t use too much, I still have a ton leftover so next time I’d only make half the recipe. I used blueberry preserves instead of strawberry jam (because it was the only fruity jam I had in the refrigerator and blueberries are my favorite). My coworkers compared the taste to a big peanut butter cookie.
I didn’t use cupcake liners but just sprayed the muffin tins with PAM baking with flour and they came out fine. Saves paper! One of my coworkers suggested these would be great for kids parties, especially if they were mini cupcakes, bite-sized… sounds like a fabulous idea!
Stay tuned for more yummy cupcakes… there is also a mini cheesecake with apricot jam and Boston cream pie cupcakes that I want to make… yum yum good.
