Peanut butter-Chip Cupcakes

 In Baked Goods

Peanut Butter-Chip cupcakes

This week is well and truly turning into Cupcake Week here on Simply Delicious. But for some reason I don’t think too many people will mind. I think a cupcake is one of those things that most people love (even though I know of a few people who don’t). For me, a cupcake (a good one) is just perfection. I normally struggle to finish a big slice of cake but a cupcake? Never! And I love how easy it is to make a cupcake look adorable, beautiful and elegant. It really can fit into whichever scenario you place it in.

The Peanut butter-Chip cupcakes are my husband’s absolute favourite and I just love watching his face when he eats one. It’s pure child-like joy and excitement. And it’s not hard to see why. The flavour of peanut butter is really quite prominent and the flavour and texture the dark chocolate chips add finished it off perfectly.

Peanut butter-chip Cupcakes

Makes 12

200g Cake flour
150g Castor sugar
125g Butter, Room Temperature
50g peanut butter
125ml Milk
2 Large eggs
2.5ml Salt
10ml Baking Powder
1 cup dark chocolate chips
Peanut butter frosting
50g peanut butter
50g unsalted butter
400g icing sugar, sifted
1 tsp vanilla extract
20ml milk

Preheat the oven to 180° and place cupcake papers in a muffin tin.

  1. Combine all the ingredients (except the chocolate chips) in a large bowl and beat until the batter is smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  2. Divide the batter between the cupcake cups and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  3. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes in the tin before placing on a cooling rack to cool completely.
  4. To make the frosting, beat the peanut butter and unsalted butter until pale and fluffy.
  5. Beat in the icing sugar and vanilla extract.
  6. Add the milk one tablespoon at a time until you have the desired consistency.
  7. Pipe the icing onto the cupcakes.

    Hello Marybeth, Do you still have a copy of that recipe you have used? I mean with the conversion of the ingredients from grams to cups? Can you please share? Thanks a lot! 🙂

  • Alida Ryder

    So glad you and your son liked them Marybeth!

    • Marybeth McKenzie

      Ok after they are all gone and shared with work and family also.. everyone says they are the best they have ever ate. I have been asked by so many to make them again. Best frosting ever they say. You should get 5 stars for this.

      • Alida Ryder

        Oh, you are so sweet. So glad they are so popular with your friends and family.

    Just made these after seeing the pictures on the Cupcakes Garden. I made them for my sons class at school however my boys said they arent allowing them to leave the house! They are soooo goood. Had to find a conversion chart for the ingredients but the time was worth it. Doubled the recipe and it made about 32 total.

    HI Alida, I used the wrong term to express, I didn’t feature the recipe at all, just the cupcakes.
    I don’t copy any part of the recipe on my blog, just expressing my opinion about cupcakes that I found and like and refer the readers to original post to find the recipe. If you want I could remove your cupcakes,just let me know. Best regards:)

  • Vera Zecevic – Cupcakes Garden

    I’ve featured this recipe on my blog, hoping that you don’t mind, but if you do, please contact me and I’ll remove it. All the best.

      Hi Vera.

      I’d prefer for you to not feature the whole recipe so if you could, rather just omit that and link to the post. Kind regards.

    These look incredible! I’m just starting to experiment with cupcakes and I know these will be a hit! Thanks for sharing!

  • Caylee

  • Kathryn

    Mmm! Peanut butter and chocolate? I’m there! I love that you sprinkled some chips on the frosting, too!
