  • Stir flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a small bowl.

  • Beat brown sugar, peanut butter, applesauce, oil, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition until combined. Beat in flour mixture, alternating with buttermilk, on low speed until just combined. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 14 to 16 minutes. Cool in the tins for 5 minutes. Loosen edges using a knife; carefully remove cupcakes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

The frosting was great. Cupcakes had a nice texture but weren't sweet at all.They didn't have a lot of peanut butter flavor either. I wouldn't make these again. Read More

These were a huge hit for our new neighbors. I made the peanut butter cupcake recipe as listed. Although I did use vanilla bean paste in place of vanilla extract. I did need to add a little milk to the banana butter frosting as it was very thick. Read More
