WOW!! I frosted these with a thick chocolate buttercream, and took them to work for a breast cancer awareness fundraiser... everyone just LOVED them!! One thing, they do not get that typical rounded cupcake look, they stay flat, and some fall quite a bit during cooling... but they're so moist and delicious they're worth it!! My fiance said they remind him of the peanut butter cookies with the reese's centers that you see at Christmas time. What a yummy cupcake!! Thanks for sharing! I'll be posting a pic later... if there's any left when I get home!

We did not like these very much. The batter was very thick - more like a soft cookie dough than cake batter. I had to push it into the cups. They did crack as the recipe said, and browned nicely, but they were very greasy inside. The flavor was good, with or without the chocolate frosting, but the texture was just very heavy and dense. I made them with no changes to the recipe.

Will make again! Turned out very light with a strong peanut butter taste. I did make some substitutions, as I am a vegan and try to be healthy where possible.I used Vanilla soy milk and white sugar/splenda/honey mixture and Ener-G egg replacer, I also used chunky peanut butter. I added some dark chocolate chips. I used 4 tablespoons of butter and 2/3 tablespoons of applesauce. Great recipe. Thanks!

Excellent! Very easy, soft and fluffy. Great peanut butter flavor. I let mine get a little too brown and cracked on top, I think, but they were still delicious. I frosted them with dark chocolate buttercream. Really glad I tried them, thank you Sandra Leanne--I hope you come back and share more.:-)

These turned out well. My only complaint is that the tops were a little dry. I cooked them for the 22 minutes called for, but I am not sure if shortening the cook time would help. Still, they were good and I did enjoy them with a chocolate buttercream frosting. Thanks for sharing!

These are the most amazing PB cupcakes I ever had. Simple to make and the taste is perfect. I topped mine with chocolate frosting and it really does remind me of a Reese's peanut butter cup. This one is a keeper.

SIMPLY AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! These cupcake are wonderful! I put in a half the amount of peanut butter and added vanilla pudding for extra moisture! They came out great! My daughter HATES peanut butter, but devoured these cupcakes... I will definitely make these again and again! Thanx for posting !

This is an amazing recipe! With chocolate icing they really do taste like peanutbutter cups. Made them for a Bday party and everyone loved them.
