PB&J Cupcakes

Last weekend I decided to turn one of my husband’s favorite sweet treats, PB&J sandwich, into a cupcake.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Cupcake Ingredients:

  • 1 box of white cake mix, you can also use butter cake mix
  • 2-3 cups of Peanut butter spread; I used Jiffy’s reduced fat
  • 3 eggs
  • 3-1/2 sticks of unsalted butter (oil substitute)
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of milk (water substitute)
  • Grape or strawberry jelly
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts


  1. Cream about ¾ cups of peanut butter with ½ stick of butter
  2. Just follow the instruction of the cake mix box, but make the substitutions listed above.
  3. Add to creamed peanut butter - cake mix, eggs, vanilla extract, 1 stick of butter, sour cream, milk
  4. Fold in chopped peanuts
  5. Bake according to cake box instructions

After cooled, inject the jelly into each cupcake with a piping tip and voila! Now, it’s ready for icing.

Peanut Butter Icing

Mix about 1-2 cups of peanut butter with 2 cups of confectioning sugar; taste it to make sure it’s not too sweet and make sure it stays at a good consistence for decoration. Not too hard and not too soft.

Well, it turned out delicious and I even had extra for a little cake.

If you like PB&J sandwiches, this is a must. I am sure you will love it!
