My favorite cake is chocolate with Peanut Butter frosting…so why not try with cupcakes for our station Cupcake Bake Off today! Of course, Katie’s Kitchen HAD to be involved.
I used a classic boxed Devil’s Food Cake mix from the grocery store, follow the recipe on the back to bake your cupcakes!
For the frosting:
Start out with 2 sticks of softened butter and 3/4 cup of creamy peanut butter. I used my stand mixer on low for 2 minutes until blended with the paddle attachment.
Then, add 2 1/2 cups of powdered sugar and mix on low. Add the remaining 2 cups of sugar and the vanilla extract and half of the whipping cream. Beat on low, then increase to medium-high speed for about 2 minutes until the frosting is fluffy.
Spread on cupcakes when cooled. Add a peanut butter cup for topping!
