  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.

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.

Super moist! I used about half the icing sugar for the frosting and had more than enough icing for the batch.I also substituted strawberry extract for vanilla. Delish!

I LOVED these. While it's sort of strange, it was a nice departure from the normal yellow/white/chocolate cupcake. I made them with my grandmother's homemade strawberry jelly. YUMMY!
