Peanut Butter Cupcakes

This last week, I found myself with a ton of birthdays and occasions to where I needed to make a cake or some such. I decided that since I had to spread this all around, I would make cupcakes</i>! I made a few alterations to the AllRecipes recipe, but still pretty close to the original. My only changes were that I added a dash of cinnamon (I might skip that next time) and I frosted them with chocolate frosting. Tasty!

Peanut Butter Cupcakes

2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. shortening
1 c. peanut butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
(I used a mix of whole wheat flour and all-purpose)
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 pinch salt

1. Preheat the oven to 350'F. Line a cupcake pan with paper liners, or grease and flour cups.

2. In a large bowl, mix together the brown sugar, shortening and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter alternately with the milk. Spoon into the prepared muffin cups.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top of the cupcakes spring back when lightly pressed. Cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes 24 cupcakes.
