Peanut butter and chocolate chip cupcakes, in the awesome giraffe-print liners that Alicia got me for xmas. :)
Recipe adapted from the cupcake book that Laura got me.
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup superfine sugar
1 cup cake flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter (I used Crazy Richard's)
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
350 degrees, about 20 min. Makes 9.
The batter is incredibly dense, and the cakes come out (predictably) oily, some even pulling away from the liners completely. I think I'll put in more chocolate chips next time, just because I like them and I feel the cakes, while nice as is, need a little "something".
1/4 cup chunky peanut butter
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon milk
I love these liners!
