Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

These are the same as the Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cupcakes just without the Chocolate Chips.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes:

Ingredients - 

2 c. all-purpose flour (I use Gold Medal)
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. cocoa powder (dutch process/NOT unsweetened)
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. milk (Sometimes I use soy, either works)
3/4 c. creamy peanut butter
1/3 c. butter or margarine
2 eggs
3/4 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions - 

First, mix the sugar and softened butter or margarine in a large mixing bowl and beat at low speed until fully blended (should only take a few minutes with an electric mixer). Then, mix the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder together in a separate bowl and slowly sift in the powdered ingredients while beating the mixture at low speed. Beat the eggs in a separate container and then add to the batter. Mix well. Then add vanilla extract to mixture. Next, mix in the peanut butter and beat at medium speed until batter is smooth. Then add milk.

Fill cupcake pans 2/3 full and heat at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Let cool and then frost with chocolate frosting.
