Baking is so much fun. The weather has been kind of nicer here at night so it's not such a scary thing to turn on the oven after the sun goes down. The air was nice and cool last night so I decided to take advantage and bake up some goodness!!! Last night I baked a batch of Peanut butter cupcakes. They were so good. I got the recipe from Yet another Isa and Terry Cookbook called VEGAN CUPCAKES TAKE OVER THE WORLD. This isn't my first time making these, it's my third time. For those of you who know me, I am a peanut butter fanatic. These just made my life a little more peanut buttery!
Let me tell you, the first time I made these my cupcakes sank. I was so upset! I couldn't figure out what I did wrong. Come to find out my oven is all wonkyass and doesn't heat properly unless you wait longer than like 30 minutes! We now have an oven thermometer because if it's craziness. I watched that oven thermometer like my life depended on it! I didn't want that thing ruining my PB Goodness! Isa says that the first 15 minute of baking cupcakes is the most important time, so DO NOT OPEN THAT OVEN! My oven is older and doesn't have a glass window so I was paranoid! I wanted to know what was going on in there. To be on the safe side I waited 20 minutes before I even peeked. When I opened the oven they were beautiful! I was so happy!
HOWEVER... I was NOT happy with the chocolate/peanut butter icing. It got all funky on me but it's okay! They tasted great, which was what I was going for. But Dag-Nammit, that icing better not crap out on me next time!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would love to share the recipe with you but I don't want to cheat Isa and Terry. I love them too much. BUT!!! If you want, you can come over and we can make these together! Or I'll come to you!!!
