PEANUT BUTTER CUPCAKES


with honey-cinnamon frosting.
nom.

i had so much icing leftover from the bakesale baking,
i made some cookie sandwishes too
but no pictures,
sorry.
they were soooo good though,
with nutella frosting in the middles.
if you want to make them,
sight unseen,

here's a good cookie sandwich recipe...
3/4 c sugar
1 2/3 c flour
3/4 c cocoa
1/2 t soda
pinch salt

using beaters or a food processor or a whisk maybe,
beat/cut in

15 T soft butter

a T at a time.
if you're doing it with beaters or a food processor,
the dough is supposed to magically form a ball eventually,
but i cheated and added an egg.
please don't tell the baking police.
then i rolled it out reeeaalllyy thin
directly onto an ungreased baking sheet,
and ran a pizza cutter through it to make squares.
then forked holes in the cookies.
then i baked em for about 10 min at 350.
(my oven doesn't have a working bottom element
and the door doesn't shut but i still managed.)

the frosting was
butter
icing sugar
nutella
water (JUST enough to make it spreadable,
always with icing,
add the water very slowly.)

but that's not even what you came here for!

here's the easy, adaptable cake recipe.
(feel free to halve it)
1 c oil
2 1/2 c liquid (milk, water, whatevs)
2 eggs
1 t vinegar
vanilla
1/2 c peanut butter

whisk that up.
then add all at once:

2 1/2 c flour
1 c sugar
1 t soda

mix till JUST mixed.
try not to over mix.
it's bad.
then bake in muffin cups at 350 for 20ish minutes.

awhile ago the 1kg of adams was like $4 and i got two.
that's a lot of pb.

i put choco chips in some,
but they would be REALLY good with a blob of jam inside,
or iced with something berry.
mm.
good.
