I love cupcakes, especially plain vanilla ones (ooooh yum!) but I made chocolate & peanut butter flavour once & my Mr loved them, so I thought I’d share the recipe with you guys! 🙂
I take the standard vanilla cupcake recipe (I love to use Mary Berry’s one – without the icing!) & then I add in a big lump (I tend not to weigh) of chocolate spread, a hazelnut one normally & a big dollop of peanut butter (again, I don’t measure how much, I go more off taste).
I normally make a big batch & do some vanilla flavour & while they’re baking, I’ll make the rest of the mix into chocolate & peanut butter flavour. Once done, like usual, I divide the mixture into the cupcake cases & bake!
The smell is gorgeous when they’re in the oven & freshly baked cupcakes leave the kitchen / house smelling delicious!!
Below is a list of ingredients & a few pictures of the process & finished product. Once again, if you happen to make them, please leave comments below, Tweet, Facebook or Instagram me how they turned out.
