Let’s chat on the subject of peanut butter cupcakes, like this lovely one from the Baker Street Bakery.
Smooth or chunky?
I have never met a peanut butter cupcake made with chunky peanut butter. Have you?
Here’s a sampling of what I could find. Some recipes create a peanut butter cupcake base and go so far as to say “smooth.” Other recipes put the peanut butter in the frosting and indicate “creamy.” Going over the top is a recipe that not only uses peanut butter, it also uses Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
And I did manage to find one recipe that specified “creamy or chunky.”
