Jelly Filled Vanilla Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

Addicted to  peanut butter and jelly sandwiches then these traditional vanilla cupcakes filled with strawberry jam and topped with creamy Peanut Butter Frosting will be a special treat for kids and adults alike.

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (1 stick)
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/2 cup whole milk

3/4 cup strawberry jam or preserves
2 cups Peanut Butter Frosting (recipe below)

Preheat the oven to 350 F.  Line 12 muffin cups with paper baking cups.


In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt and set aside.

In a separate large bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer.  Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition, then add the milk.  Slowly add the flour mixture and combine until the batter is uniform.  Do not overmix.

Fill each cupcake liner halfway with batter.  Drop a 1 Tablespoon of the jam in the center of each cupcake and then top more batter so that they are a little more than 3/4 full.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until cupcakes spring bake when touched lightly.  Let them cool completely before icing with Peanut Butte Frosting.

PEANUT BUTTER FROSTING:

1 1/4 cups unsalted butter, softened (2 1/2 sticks)
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
5 cups confectioners; sugar (icing/powdered)
1/2 teaspoon salt
