What two things go together better than chocolate and peanut butter? I cannot think of anything. They are perfect together.
what better for a chocolate cupcake than to be filled with peanut butter?
This recipe should make 8 regular cupcakes or 6 large ones...or just cram all the batter into 6 regular cupcake tins and let them rise and fall over the top. It's still good.
1 cup Pamela's Baking Mix
1/3 cup Powdered Sugar
3 Tbspn cocoa powder
(sift together till well mixed)
2 Tbspn vegetable oil
3 Tbspn cold water
1/3 cup honey
1 Tbspn Vanilla extract
sift dry ingredients together to mix. add all wet ingredients and stir well (mixer if desired, but I just hand mixed)
pour batter into cupcake liners or directly into greased cupcake pan.
Bake at 350 for 18-22 minutes.
now, here's the fun part, After the cupcakes have cooled just a bit, using a pastry bag with a #21 star tip, fill with peanut butter. Stab that tip right into the very center top of the cupcakes about half an inch down and squeeze out about a tablespoon of peanut butter right into the cupcake...slowly pulling the tip towards the surface of the cupcake (still filling). Then top the cupcake with chocolate frosting. I imagine some chocolate or peanut butter pieces/sprinkles would be adorable right on top of that, but I didn't have any.
