Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper baking cups. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until fluffy, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the egg and strawberry extract, continue beating. Beat in the milk and buttermilk, then beat in the jam. The batter should be pink.
  3. Stir in 1/3 of the flour mixture, mixing until just incorporated. Stir in 1/2 of the remaining flour and then add the remaining flour; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Pour the batter into prepared baking cups.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes clean, about 15 to 20 minutes. Cool before frosting.
  5. Beat the peanut butter and butter until smooth in a large bowl. Mix in 2 cups of the confectioners' sugar, 1/4 cup at a time; then stir in 1/4 cup milk. Gradually add the remaining 2 cups of sugar. If the frosting is too dry add a tablespoon of milk. Frost the tops of the cooled cupcakes.

What a delicious cupcake! Very moist and soft. I didn't have strawberry extract so I just used vanilla. I found some delicious homemade strawberry jam at the farmer's market and used that instead of raspberry jam. Instead of beating the jam into the batter, I folded 1/4 cup in before placing into the cupcake pan. This way it it has streaks of jam running through. After baking, i took a knife and took a little hole out of the middle then I warmed up the other 1/4 cup of jam for 10 seconds in the microwave and filled each cupcake. My peanut butter frosting I used 1/2 cup butter, 1 1/4 cup peanut butter, 1 1/2 cup pwd sugar, and 3 tbsp of heavy whipping cream.

My cakes unfortunately turned out a little drier than I like. However, the girls at the Casino loved them. I filled each one with strawberry jam to moisten them up a little.
