Cake ingredients

  • 3 tbs unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ c smooth or crunchy peanut butter
  • ¾ c brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ c all purpose flour
  • ½ tbs baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ c milk
  • Your favorite jelly or jam

Frosting ingredients

  • ½ c smooth peanut butter
  • ¾ stick unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ tbs vanilla extract
  • 1 to 2 c powdered sugar
  • 1 ½ tbs milk


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease a 12 capacity muffin tin or line the holes with paper cases.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter and brown sugar until fluffy.
  3. Add one egg at a time and the vanilla to the butter mixture and beat for about a minute for each.
  4. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl.
  5. Slowly add a third of the flour mix, alternating with the milk, ending with the flour mix. Mix until just combined ensuring you do not over mix.
  6. Spoon the mixture into prepared muffin tin.
  7. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  8. Once cupcakes are cooled you can pipe the jelly into the center or use an apple corer to take out the center of the cupcake and fill with 1 to 2 teaspoons of jelly.
  9. To make the frosting, combine the peanut butter, butter, and vanilla in a bowl. Mix until light and fluffy.
  10. Add the powdered sugar along with the milk, and beat until well combined, adding more sugar to reach your desired consistency.
  11. Pipe the frosting onto the fully cooled, jelly filled cupcakes and decorate as desired.
