How To Make Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes:

For Cupcakes:

Preheat oven to 350° and place paper baking cups into 24 regular-sized muffin cups.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

In a large bowl, cream sugar, butter, peanut butter, and egg.

Next, add vanilla extract.

On a low speed, alternate blending in dry mixture and milk.

Fill each paper baking cup up about 2/3 full and bake for 20-25 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool thoroughly before frosting.

For Frosting:

Combine all ingredients and a dash of salt in top of double boiler.

Cook over boiling water, beating constantly until stiff peaks form.

Remove from the heat.

Beat until spreading consistency, about 2 minutes.

Pro Tip: Heat 1/4 cup of jelly until just warm and drizzle over the cupcakes before serving. It’ll taste great and add just a little bit more of that nostalgic feel. Enjoy!
