Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Cupcakes

When you were little, did your mom ever hide coins in your birthday cake? Mine didn’t but my friend Lesley’s mom did and I loved it. I am not sure if this was an early indication of my love of baked goods, or cash! I like to think it was the thrill of finding an unexpected surprise. With that in mind, I decided to stash a little peanut butter in the centers of these cupcakes. I find it goes down a little easier than a dime.
 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1⁄4 cups dark cocoa
1 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1⁄2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 1⁄2 cups whole milk
1 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons pure vanilla

Peanut Butter Butter Cream (page 135)
Deep Dark Chocolate Butter Cream (page 133)
1⁄2 cup dark chocolate chips
1⁄2 cup Rice Krispies
If you prefer crunchy peanut butter, feel free to use it for the peanut butter center—but be sure to use smooth for the cupcake batter. 

Makes: 18 cupcakes 

You Will Need: 2 muffin pans lined with paper liners, large ice cream scoop, 2 (14-inch) piping bags, one fitted with a large round tip, one fitted with a large star tip

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
2. Onto a large piece of parchment paper, sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
3. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream 1⁄2 cup of the peanut butter with the butter and both sugars, on medium to high speed until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
4. Add the eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl several times.
5. In a liquid measuring cup, whisk together the milk, sour cream and vanilla to combine.
6. Turn the mixer to low and add the dry ingredients in three parts, alternating with the liquid ingredients in two parts (begin and end with the dry). Scrape down the sides of the bowl several times to make sure everything is fully combined.
7. Use the ice cream scoop to fill each paper liner about three-quarters full with batter. Use two small teaspoons to push 1 teaspoon of peanut butter into the center of the batter and make sure it is fully covered by batter.

This is my favorite baking cookbook! I always turn to this one whenever I want to bake something. I have a lot of baking cookbooks ranging from easy-peasy five ingredient recipes to ones that ask for the most obscure ingredients you would only find in Tibet. This cookbook is well loved as I’m always cracking it open. I love the chocolate cake recipe and our family favorite is the raspberry custard pie. I make scones once a month, but mine always seem to spread in the oven, so I’m trying to tweak the recipe to work best for me, but it doesn’t stop me from baking them over and over. This summer? I’m going to tackle the marshmellows. :)
