What a delicious cupcake! Very moist and soft. I didn't have strawberry extract so I just used vanilla. I found some delicious homemade strawberry jam at the farmer's market and used that instead of raspberry jam. Instead of beating the jam into the batter, I folded 1/4 cup in before placing into the cupcake pan. This way it it has streaks of jam running through. After baking, i took a knife and took a little hole out of the middle then I warmed up the other 1/4 cup of jam for 10 seconds in the microwave and filled each cupcake. My peanut butter frosting I used 1/2 cup butter, 1 1/4 cup peanut butter, 1 1/2 cup pwd sugar, and 3 tbsp of heavy whipping cream.
frosting was great!! cupcake... eh.... is the best I can say. not horrible but not as sweet as I would like
My cakes unfortunately turned out a little drier than I like. However, the girls at the Casino loved them. I filled each one with strawberry jam to moisten them up a little.
Super moist! I used about half the icing sugar for the frosting and had more than enough icing for the batch.I also substituted strawberry extract for vanilla. Delish!
I LOVED these. While it's sort of strange, it was a nice departure from the normal yellow/white/chocolate cupcake. I made them with my grandmother's homemade strawberry jelly. YUMMY!
Excellent recipe - came in second place in a cupcake contest with this recipe. The cupcakes are nice and moist, the frosting is AMAZING. Filled the cupcakes with strawberry jam and sprinkled crushed up potato chips on the top (it sounds gross, but I promise it's delicious!!). Thanks for the recipe!!
I made a double batch of these and took them to work, and they loved them! You must like peanut butter to enjoy these, the frosting definitely has a strong peanut butter taste. I couldn't find any strawberry extract at my grocery store, so I used raspberry instead. I stuck with the raspberry jam.
This peanut butter frosting is to die for if you love peanut butter! (I couldn't keep my boyfriend out of it). I split the batter into two and made half with strawberry jam and half with blackberry jam, made 10 of each with smaller cupcakes. As others have said this is a very dense cake not like a regular cupcake. I found after baking and tasting that there wasn't enough of the jam flavor for me so I cut out small holes in the middle of the cupcakes and added a little of the jams to give them more flavor, then frosted. THESE WERE A GREAT HIT (made them for my father-in-law on his birthday, he is a PB&J fanatic) Thanks for the recipe! :) I will make these again!
