Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes!

I am entering this post as my entry over on a bakespiration challenge on Stuck in the tree!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes :)

Grown up luxury with the added benefit of passing it off as part of your 5 a day - just use full fruit jam! ;)


6oz self raising flour
1tsp baking powder
6oz soft butter
6oz caster sugar
2 eggs
2tsp vanilla extract
7fl oz milk
2tbsp peanut butter

Frosting and Filling.

2oz Icing Sugar

4oz peanut butter

8oz soft cream cheese

Good quality Jam 

Combine the sugar and butter and whisk until well blended. 

Add the eggs one at a time making sure you pull down the mix from the sides of the bowl before adding the next.

Sieve the flour and add slowly to your eggy mix. 

Add milk, peanut butter and vanilla and mix well.

Spoon into muffin cases and bake at 180 degrees for approx 25 minutes, take out when topping is hard and a skewer comes out of the cake clean.

Leave to cool completely.

After cooling i injected approx 5mls of jam into the centre of each cake. You know to stop injecting when it starts oozing back out of the top! lol

The peanut butter icing - add more peanut butter if you prefer a strong taste and you can add additional spoonfulls of icing sugar to keep it sweet.

Grind up some peanuts and sprinkle on top.
