Last weekend I went “home” to Wisconsin for my Grandmother’s 85th Birthday Party. She is a truly amazing woman and I couldn’t wait to make something delicious for her celebration. Also, I was pretty excited to a) get to bake for my parents and sisters who have only gotten to see my treats online and b) bake in the kitchen larger than a closet!
Both of those things I did and it was great. It also makes it very hard to come back and bake in my small kitchen. In fact, since I got back I haven’t really felt like getting in there (which is odd for me.) I also haven’t really had any inspiration on new recipes. I am truly hoping that this ends soon so that I have something cool to post later this week. I do have a brand new Ice Cream Maker that just arrived today as well as a Creme Brulee torch. So maybe something that involves one of those…..
Anyhow- these cupcakes are hard not to like- chocolate cake, peanut butter filling and a creamy peanut butter frosting. For anyone who is as obsessed with this combo as I am, these will be your new favorite treat.
Note: It is very easy to overbake these. Even if you think they are not quite done, don’t bake them for more that 23 minutes or so. One of my batches was just a tad too crisp on top!
