Peanut butter cupcakes
cupcakes – 55 grams butter, soft – 225 grams brown sugar – 115 grams peanut butter (can be crunchy) – 2 each eggs – 1 tsp vanilla extract – 225 grams self raising flour – 100 ml milkfrosting – 125 grams butter, soft – 3 tbsp peanut butter (not crunchy) – 225 grams icing sugar – 2 tbsp maple syrup
preheat oven to 180°C. put cupcake cases into the cupcake tray
beat butter, sugar and peanut butter in a bowl until well combined – for 1-2 minutes. add 1 egg at a time and the vanilla extract. beat until combined.
sift in the flour and mix together. gradually add the milk until well combined.
spoon the mixture into the cases and bake for 25 mins or until they are golden brown. to test if they are done put a wooden skewer into the center and if it comes out clean they are done.
to make the frosting, mix butter, icing sugar and peanut butter together. add the maple syrup and milk and mix well.
pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes and they are ready. I put mine in the fridge to set the buttercream more.
