Sometimes inspiration strikes when you least expect it. That is how this recipe was born. I was sitting on the couch, watching TV, when it I remembered that months ago, I wrote down a few ideas for cupcakes. This was one of them. I decided to make them the following day and according to my husband, they were delicious! PB&J for the win!

Peanut Butter & Jelly Cupcakes

Ingredients

  • For the Cupcake
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk, any kind should work
  • For the Frosting:
  • 1 C heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tbsp grape jelly (or any flavor of your preference)

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. And line a cupcake pan with liners of your choice.
  2. In a large bow, whisk together your dry ingredients.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
  4. Add in your egg and vanilla and beat until incorporated.
  5. Add in your PB and mix until thoroughly combined.
  6. On low or stir mode and alternating your dry mixture and milk, add until just incorporated. Turn up the speed to medium for twenty seconds and then turn off. Using a rubber spatula, scrape the bowl making sure that everything is fully mixed.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cupcakes spring back when lightly touched.
  8. Let cool for 30 minutes.
  9. When the cupcakes are cool to the touch, you can make your frosting.
  10. Whip 1 Cup very cold heavy cream in your stand mixer using the whisk attachment (you can do this with a hand held whisk also). When you have stiff peaks, add in your three tablespoons of jelly and mix for just a few seconds more. You can now decorate your cupcakes however you please!
