Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes


  1. Start out by putting an oven rack in the middle of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Next... Line a standard 12 cup muffin tin with cupcake liners and set aside.
  3. Then... In the stand mixing bowl, add the butter and the sugar and beat that until it is light and fluffy. Should take around about 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile... In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the sour cream to the butter and sugar mixture and continue to beat until incorporated.
  5. Then.. Add the eggs and yolk, 1 at a time, beating until thoroughly mixed into the batter. Add in the vanilla and continue to mix. Slowly add the dry ingredients, in increments, and mix until combined.
  6. After that... Scoop the batter into the cupcake liners to fill 3/4 of the way.
  7. Put the unbaked cupcakes in the oven and bake. Set your timer for 18 to 20 minutes.
  8. Ding! Timers Done... The cupcakes should be a pale gold color and a toothpick should come out clean. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and let cool in the tins for 5 minutes.
  9. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting and filling.
  10. Meanwhile, fit a plain pastry tip to the bottom of a gallon-sized resealable plastic bag and fill with strawberry jelly.
  11. Once the cupcakes are cool, insert the tip far into the cupcake and slowly squeeze in about 1 tablespoon or so of jam.
  12. Be careful not to overfill the cupcakes or they will crumble and explode.
  13. Repeat with the remaining cupcakes.
  14. Frost the cupcakes with the Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting recipe below using a pastry bag and a star tip.
  15. Sprinkle lightly with the confetti sprinkles and serve.
