Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Centre's

Saturday, 23 March 2013

The other week I fancied a little naughty treat and decided to make these light and fluffy chocolate chip cupcakes with gooey peanut butter centre's!
They turned out perfectly! Super light and moist (ok, they are a little burnt around the tops but they didn't taste it!) with a hidden surprise in the middle!
To make these you will need:
100g sugar
115g butter
150g self raising flour
1 egg
Chocolate chips or chunks
Peanut butter (I used crunchy)
~ Preheat oven to 190°C and grease a muffin tin
~ Cream butter (I softened mine first in the microwave a little) and sugar for 1 minute (I used my electric hand mixer)
~ Add the egg and beat on low until combined
~ Sift in the flour and add chocolate chips or chunks and mix together with a wooden spoon (or spatula or any other tool you have handy!)
~ Scoop a small teaspoon of mixture into the muffin tin, then add a small spoonful of peanut butter and then top with another spoonful of cake mixture.
~ Repeat until muffin tin is full (my mixture made 6 generous sized muffins!)
~ Cook for 15mins or until golden brown.
~ Devour while still warm!!
I'm so excited - I've finally took the plunge and ordered myself a beautiful, shiny stand mixer! Just waiting for it to arrive - cue lots of baking, treats and recipes very soon!
Have you tried making these? Let me know what you think :)
