Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes will make you feel like a kid again! A tender, moist peanut butter cupcake filled with jelly and topped with a luscious, light peanut butter buttercream frosting.
I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #BacktoSchoolTreats week recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
These fun little gems will take you right back to being a kid. I know Carsyn’s face lit up when he saw them and every bite warranted a little “mmmm” which was adorable.
They are filled with delicious jelly and so much delicious peanut butter flavor. It’s almost like eating a PB&J but wayyyyyy better!
After several failed attempts at trying to get a moist peanut butter cupcake, I think we finally got it with this one. I tried dozens of recipes running around online and a few I had reserved of my own and they all wound up tasting and feeling a lot more like a muffin than an actual cupcake.
I even tried with cake flour and while the results were better, I wanted to find some way to do it with regular all purpose flour. We succeeded with this recipe.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes are a HUGE hit with the kids. I think there is just something about the flavor that appeals to kids. And the best part is, you can choose any kind of jelly to fill it with. We used Raspberry but we made a few Strawberry filled ones for Carsyn.
Grape, Blackberry, Blueberry, Cherry, Orange Marmalade…. if you love it with your peanut butter, it’ll work here just fine.
