If you are looking for flavours a little different from the usual vanilla, chocolate or fruity flavours for cakes and cupcakes, then this peanut butter cupcakes should definitely sound interesting. You can even make it into the classic PBJ flavour by topping it or filling it with some jam..:)
These peanut butter cupcakes can be made using home-made peanut butter and that ways the amount of preservatives that go into the batter is in your control completely. You can either use the creamy peanut butter or the crunchy variant. And top it up with some peanut butter buttercream for that extra dose of peanut butter..;)
