PB & Grape Cupcakes – A USA jet-lagged brainchild!

PB&Grape Cupcakes for a true American flavour kick!

PB&Grape Cupcakes for a true American flavour kick!

I must firstly apologise on this post as it has been about 3 months since my last post.  I have been been baking, I promise, but finding an hour to sit and blog seems beyond me as of late.  Despite that though I have been making various combinations and a successful one as of late has been the beetroot brownie route which has kept my mate Nic very happy…especially her paleo carrot cake which I made.  Anyhoo, back on to more pressing matters, namely this post…inspired by my total love for peanut butter and my obsession with American Grape flavour.  I am sat here blogging, still jet-lagged after a speedy 1 week trip to Vegas for Viva Las Vegas, which was AWESOME but for some reason I am seriously feeling the effects more so this time around.  I managed to grap a few bags of these nifty Welch’s PB&J snack sweets at a gas station and this is where my already much appreciated Goober came in to play.  Add to that me bringing back about 10 sachets of KoolAid at only 20c each and you have a rather exciting PB&Grape Cupcake.  This is a new recipe, based on my basic core recipe and is really a trial and error, some may love this (peanut butter-aholics) and some will grimace in horror (Grant) but it seemed as good a chance as any to get a new post up and to try something a bit different.  Enjoy!

PB&Grape combos ROCK!

Peanut Butter & Kool Aid Jelly Whoopie Pies – Good Morning USA!!!!

Whoopie’s Inspired by the USA!

*SPOILER ALERT*

All the same, this is the way I went about things in case you feel like a bit of a challenge and a sloppy, delicious taste of the USA :) Continue reading »
