Step 1: Ingredients and Supplies
- Devil's Food cake Mix
- 1 Cup of water
- ½ cup of oil
- 3 eggs
- Cupcake Liners
- 1 stick of softened butter
- ½ cup of peanut butter
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- 4 tablespoons of Milk
Step 2: Tools
- Large Bowl
- Mixing spoon/ Large spoon
- Cupcake tin
- Measuring spoons and cups
- Electric mixer (May be handheld)
- Serving plate
- Ice cream scooper (optional)
- Piping bag and tip (optional)
Step 3: Preheat Oven and Cupcake Batter
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
While the oven is preheating, you can make the batter.
Mix the ½ cup oil, 3 eggs, cake mix, and 1 cup of water together in the large bowl with the mixing spoon. You will also need the full cup and half cup measuring cups.
Step 4: Fill Liners
Line the cupcake tin with cupcake liners. Then, with the ice cream scooper or regular spoon, scoop the batter into the cupcake tin.(This step may need to be repeated if you only have one cupcake tin.)
Step 5: Bake
Then carefully place the cupcakes into the oven and set a timer for 20 minutes.
Step 6: Frosting
While the cupcakes are in the oven, you can prepare the frosting. In a large bowl, one that can be used in the mixer, mix one stick of butter and ½ a cup of peanut butter. Gradually mix in the two cups of powdered sugar and ½ teaspoon of vanilla. Finally add 5 tablespoons of milk, one at a time, until smooth.
Step 7: Piping Bag
Next, place the frosting into a piping bag. (Keep in mind this step is optional. If wanted you may apply the frosting with a knife.)
Step 8: Frosting on Cupcakes
Slowly squeeze the piping bag and squirt it in a circular motion.
Step 9: Voila! Eat and Enjoy
Basically this cupcake is savory and peanut buttery. Something that needs to be watched is make sure you scrape the excess ingredients of the bottom of the mixing bowl. This will help mix it more evenly. I hope this delicious cupcake fits your taste and I hope you enjoy!
