Peanut Butter Cupcakes

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by cam970 Moore

These are wonderful, my children love them. We usually double this recipe, as they don't last long, and often I make them mini size, as they are quite filling and rich.

My daughter made these yesterday. I liked them better than she did. She wanted a more intense peanut butter flavor; the cinnamon predominates. These came out very light and a bit crumbly, but not dry. I enjoyed them; thank you!
