Happy Cupcake Tuesday – I’m so excited you are here! Looking for a cupcake recipe? Be sure to check out the Cupcake Heaven page, there are over 200 cupcake recipes and decorating ideas!

Peanut Butter & Jelly – quite possibly the most popular sandwich ever made. Some like it on white bread – some on wheat – many like it with the crust removed. I’ve seen hundreds of variations of a Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich.

So why not make it into a cupcake? A moist peanut butter flavored cupcake, filled with Homemade Strawberry Jam, topped with a big dollop of Peanut Butter Frosting and a spoonful of more jam. What’s not to love?

After the cupcakes are baked and cooled, fill each cupcake with a couple spoons of jam or jelly. I have several different methods that I use to fill a cupcake – learn how!

Then you will want to mix up a batch of this Peanut Butter Frosting. It’s actually one of my favorites, and is the same frosting I use on my Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes. Using an offset spatula, spread a large dollop of Peanut Butter Frosting on top of the cupcake, then using the tip of the spatula, made an indentation for the jam or jelly to sit.

We love Homemade Strawberry Freezer Jam, which is a recipe that my Mother-in-law made when my husband was a boy. It’s a classic recipe – you must try it!
