Yield: 12 cupcakes

Baking time: 20-25 minutes


1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, softened

1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup (125 grams) creamy peanut butter

1 1/2 cups (190 grams) all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup (120 ml) milk

For the frosting:

1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, softened

1 cup (250 grams) creamy peanut butter

2 cups (250 grams) powdered sugar

2-3 tablespoons (30-45 ml) milk


1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

3. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract and peanut butter.

4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.

5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients.

6. Fill the cupcake liners 2/3 full with the batter.

7. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.

8. Allow the cupcakes to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

9. While the cupcakes are cooling, make the frosting. Beat the butter and peanut butter until creamy, then gradually add the powdered sugar. Add milk as needed to achieve a spreadable consistency.

10. Once the cupcakes are completely cooled, frost them with the peanut butter frosting. Enjoy!
