Everyone will fall in love with these peanut butter and jelly cupcakes. Soft, fluffy peanut butter cupcakes are filled with sweet jam and topped with a berry buttercream for a tasty crowd-pleasing treat.
There isn’t much better than peanut butter and jelly as a flavor combination. I mean, what’s not to love?
It’s super comforting and nostalgic and reminds me of the excitement of back to school. Can you believe that it is already time for school to again?
Whaaaat?! I feel like summer only just started and already it’s fall.
These peanut butter and jelly cupcakes are the perfect lunchbox dessert. It’s a fluffy peanut butter cupcake filled with your favorite jam (I used mixed berry) and then topped with a nice berry jam frosting.
It’s a tasty balance of both worlds, just as it should be. Any kid (or adult!) would be thrilled to find this in their lunchbox.
Normally, I don’t like peanut butter cupcakes because they can be dense and too dry. These cupcakes are not that.
They are light and perfectly moist. You do need to pay careful attention to the baking time, however, because they will still dry out after just a minute of over baking.
Even if that happens, the surprise jam filling helps to counteract any bit of dryness.
And the berry frosting? You are going to want to eat it by the spoonful.
It’s so good. Sweet and fruity and just amazing. It’s the perfect topping for these peanut butter cupcakes.
If you wanted to really do something amazing, you can melt some peanut butter chips with heavy cream and drizzle it over the frosting and add a drizzle of thinned out jam.
Oh my gosh, I am drooling just thinking about it.
Whether for back to school or just for fun, there is no going wrong with a few of these peanut butter and jelly cupcakes in your life.
Make them and be prepared to become the most popular person in the house.
