Peanutbutter and jelly/jam is a pretty good combo, although I know a few who would disagree. It’s an American classic and I love it! Creamy Peanut butter with sweet and tart jammy goodness in the guise of an innocent treat. This cupcake with its hiden center of jam, not unlike a doughnut, encased in a robe of PB sponge dense and sweet. A swirl of PB Butter cream tops it with a blob of jam to sparkle on top, optional but worth it.
Perfect to share with other lovers of this combo at a party, for tea time treat or a themed night. Although they are very easy to eat all by yourself!
. . . . .Ha these would have been great for the SuperBowl! Next year.
