Chocolate Ganache Peanut Butter Cupcakes
Total TimePrep: 55 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
Made these for a couple of special events (boss's birthday, Son's birthday at hospital where he works). Well received and, according to my son, still talked about. First time making them seemed challenging. Definitely got easier more time made them. In fact, son turns 30 tomorrow, Making them again!!
Cupcakes are delicious- my only issue was the buttercream - it seemed burnt at the bottom - next time I may try in a bowl over the pot instead
I made these to break in my new stand mixer. I can't possibly thank you enough of gush over them enough! The sponge was perfection. The filling divine. I did use a different PB Buttercream, but only bc I didn't want a cooked frosting. So my rating is for the cake, filling, and ganache. My new go-to!
My most prized and amazing cupcake. It is definitely a WINNER
I substituted a brown sugar/peanut butter icing that did not require cooking, but that was just my preference. I have had two people tell me "these are the best cupcakes I have ever eaten". I tend to agree!
This recipe knocks my socks off! I have made it many times. It's simply fabulous! If you're looking for a top-quality recipe that's great for celebrations -look no further. Great cupcakes for weddings, birthdays, you name it! These are soooooo delicious.
note to jet5657-it says 1/2 cup peanut butter in filling and 1/3 cup peanut butter in frosting. hope that helps
How much peanut butter do you add for frosting? This doesn't have peanut butter in ingredients but says "peanut butter frosting".
Well then Taunya, I’m all in
I'm an experienced baker, and this is one of the BEST cupcake recipes I've found. I haven't ever bothered with the filling because it didn't seem necessary, but the cake, ganache and buttercream are all amazing, and I have friends asking when I'm going to make these again. It's not often that I find a recipe on the internet that's flawless, but this is one of them.
