Whole Wheat Cupcakes With Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting Recipe
I’m a big fan of homemade sweets mainly because I can control what goes into them and substitute healthier ingredient if I want. Normally when it comes to cakes, pie, cookies and other desserts I believe you don’t skimp on the ingredients. The more decadent the better, but I find using whole wheat flour instead if all-purpose flour adds to the texture and flavor of most desserts. These originally were going to be baked donuts, but I didn’t have a donut tin; I used a regular muffin tin and I got these cupcakes instead. The frosting was something I came up with because I love peanut butter and chocolate together. This recipe can make 1 dozen cupcakes.
1 cup whole wheat flour
½ white sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup chocolate chips
1 tablespoon peanut butter
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon milk
1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees f.
2. Mix flour, sugar, salt, powder together.
3. in a separate bowl whisk together milk, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla and oil.
4. Add dry ingredients to wet in 3rds mix well.
5. Fill a greased muffin tin, or using cupcake foils, half way.
6. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.
7. Let cool while you make frosting.
1. In a microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate chips, peanut butter and vanilla.
2. Microwave, on high, for 1 minute.
3. Remove from microwave and add milk.
4. Whisk until blended and smooth.
5. Spread frosting on cupcakes.
