Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes [MSC]

Happy Back to School everyone! So, about a month ago I gave you all this little teaser…

What a perfect time for these cupcakes. I made theses Peanut Butter and Jelly cupcakes for Josh’s birthday since he is a big peanut butter and jelly fan, but saved the post because it is the September Martha Stewart Cupcake Club pick. This one was chosen by none other than the Club:BAKED (another baking club I participate in) organizer herself, Karen from Karen’s Cookies Cakes and More. I started them the day before Josh’s birthday. I didn’t take too many pictures because I knew I was also going to be making that Chocolate Salted Caramel 3-Layer Cake as well that week (since Josh’s birthday is the day before our anniversary) and just didn’t have the time to be snapping a lot of photos. Here’s one of what they looked like pre-jelly.

The jelly really made a difference. I think without it these would have been too dry. Maybe it is just me since I am not a big peanut butter fan (unless it is paired with chocolate!), but these were not my favorite from Martha’s book. I was the kid who never liked peanut butter and jelly. I was more of a cream cheese and jelly fan. Anyway, here is a few all plated up.


Josh agreed that these were okay. I brought the remainder of them to a meeting I had the next day.

  1. Thanks so much for baking with us! I think a cream cheese and jelly cupcake sounds delicious, too! :-) I agree that the jelly added just the right “bite” to the stick to your mouth peanut butter! But then again, I guess whoever invented the PB&J sandwich already thought of that! :-)

    Looking forward to seeing you next month!


  2. I think it’s wonderful that you baked along, even though you’re not a pb&j fan! I am, but the rest of my family isn’t, so I had to give away my cupcakes.

    I am sure people at your meeting enjoyed them!

  3. Maybe I should try some cream cheese and jelly cupcakes… hmmm….That might be even better (for me at least). These PB & J ones were were fun to make and I liked that they were pretty different than the cupcakes I had made recently!

  4. Rebecca – I couldn’t resist making these for my husband who is a PB & J fan. People at the meeting really liked them. I think I just like a slightly less dense cupcake. It was still tons of fun to make these!

  5. These PLUS a chocolate salted caramel 3 layer cake all in one week?! Dang girl – you were busy! :)

  6. Thanks Jenny! Yes, I was busy and maybe a little crazy, but it was well worth it – especially that salted caramel cake – it was amazing!

  7. Always a good job right here. Keep rolling on thruhgo.
