Recipe: Powdered Peanut Butter (PPB) cupcakes and frosting

Wednesday, January 7, 2015

Back in October, my friend Zoё created a yummy recipe for chocolate chip PPB shortbread cookies with Hale Naturals Powdered Peanut Butter. (as I am on Day 2 of #whole30, I am drooling on my laptop at the thought of these).  I am happy to say Zoё was back in the kitchen this weekend and has created a PPB cupcake with PPB icing recipe for you to try.

Remember PPB is a powder that you can used for shakes, cooking, baking, porridge, etc.  If you want it in traditional peanut butter form, just add water to reconstitute.

Thanks Zoё for this mouth-watering recipe. Here you go folks!

Cupcakes are done #yum
PPB cupcakes with PPB icing

For cake mix:
100g butter or margarine
100g caster sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1tablespoon vanilla extract
3 heaped table spoons PPB
1-2 tablespoons of milk

For frosting:
120g butter, softened
200g icing sugar
2 tablespoons PPB
1-2 tablespoons of milk

Here is the frosting to go on top
1. Preheat oven to 180 gas mark 4 and line muffin tin with 12 cases
2. Cream butter and sugar together, beat in the eggs a little at a time and stir in vanilla extract
3. Fold in flour and PPB, adding milk until a 'dropping type' texture
4. Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown and a skewer comes out clean
5. While cupcakes cool, beat butter in a bowl till soft, then add half the icing sugar and beat till smooth
6. Add remaining icing sugar, PPB and a tablespoon of milk (adding more if necessary) until the mixture is creamy and smooth.
7.  Frost cakes when they are cool.
