Peanut Butter and Chocolate Frosted Cupcakes


Cupcake has to be the perfect comfort food for a person of any age. Even though I’ve had Cupcakes before I kind of got hooked on to it bad, because of an ex-coworker. She used to make Cupcakes and bring in to work so often that I started craving for it all the time.

This is the first time am trying Cupcake and I was a little nervous until I was done with the whole baking. If the pictures are any clue the Cupcakes turned out very well indeed. I did have a hard time with the peanut butter and chocolate frosting to look good for the pictures, but after a few tries they came out okay.

  • All purpose flour : 3 cups
  • Baking powder : 2 tsp
  • Vanilla extract : 2 tsp

  6. Finally add the flour mixture in two batches by alternating with milk, beating after each addition till it all gets combined.

  8. Place the Cupcake plate into the oven.
  9. Bake for about 20 minutes and insert a toothpick in the middle to see if it comes out clean.
  10. If not bake for another 5-10 minutes.
