Chocolate Cupcakes With Peanut Butter Frosting Recipe

This week I have decided to do something different and introduce my love for baking. Ever since I was little I remember baking with my mum and to this day I still use the same baking book which was my great grandmothers. I add my own touch to the recipes and today I am sharing one of my most requested cupcakes. Every time I bake I always have to make a few batches as my family and my boyfriends family absolutely love them. All photos above are my own cakes which i baked this week. So today I am introducing you to my… 

 Chocolate Cupcakes with a Peanut Butter Frosting with a Peanut Butter Cup! If you are not a fan of Peanut Butter then will also give you some alternative options.


Cake Ingredients

6oz (175g) Self Raising Flour

6oz (175g) Caster Sugar

6oz (175g)  Butter

3 Eggs

1 & half Tsp baking powder

1 Tbsp Milk

2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder

Peanut Butter Frosting

(6oz) 175g  Butter

(7oz) 220g Icing Sugar

2 Tbsp Smooth Peanut Butter

Added Extra: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup or Chocolate Flakes

If you would prefer Chocolate Frosting replace the Peanut Butter with 2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder

Now Time To Bake

  • Mix all cake ingridients apart from Cocoa Powder together until smooth. 
  • Add the Cocoa Powder and slowly fold into the mixture until mixture is fully chocolate coated. 
  • For best cake results spoon mixture in using an ice cream scooper. I usually use muffin cases but you can use normal cupcake cases.
  • Mixture can fill between 12-18 cupcakes depending on case size.
  • Fill cases 3 quarters full.
  • Cook at Gas Mark 4 for 30 minutes. I turn the tray around half way through to ensure cakes are even coloured all over.
  • Whilst cakes are cooking mix the Icing Sugar and Butter together until smooth. Then add the Peanut Butter and mix well. 
  • Once cakes are cool pipe the icing on using a nozzle of your choice. 
  • For extra decoration add the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups or Chocolate Sprinkles/Flakes.

As I said these are my most requested cupcakes and they are super yummy! I am thinking of introducing baking posts as a more regular thing to my blog as I do bake on a weekly basis. I also have recipes for Marshmallow Cupcakes, Cookie Dough Cupcakes, Death by Chocolate & More!
