Peanut Butter Cupcake

Kids love peanut butter, we really do. How about making your kids a cupcake using their favorite peanut butter spread?

You are in luck; I have a great Peanut Butter Cupcake recipe that will make your kids ask for more. To add to the richness of the cupcake, I used Nutella frosting (chocolate and hazelnut spread) to increase your kid’s eating pleasure. Once you taste this, you’ll be wishing to be like us again.

This recipe is very simple and easy to follow. I intentionally used a ready-made spread for the frosting to save more time. You can even have your little ones spread the frosting on their cupcake. I think that it is a good idea to bond more with your kids while getting them interested in baking, don’t you think?
