Don't be fooled by this simply dressed cupcake. We hid its sweet secret inside: a creamy, fluffy peanut butter filling.

    Well, phone won't let me go below 2 stars, but - gross. Cake is oily and needs vanilla, and the marshmallow fluff is just nasty. Better to have just put a dollop of peanut butter inside. Also cupcakes collapsed unlike picture.

    Loved these! The cake is fluffy and delicious. I changed the filling to a simple cream cheese and peanut butter mixture with a bit of honey. Will definitely make again!

    Can someone PLEASE tell me why the ingredients do not save to the desktop? Whenever I see a recipe I like I click "save" so that I can keep it in a file and go to it later when I want to make it. EVERY time I do this, when I open it the ingredients are gone..just the recipe is there...it's maddening! I've written to the company but no answer ever. Anyone else have this problem?

    These look delicious - I think I'll use the leftover filling for a decorative topping, instead of the confectioner's sugar.

    This is a good cupcake recipe. It is moist, rich, and keeps well for several days when stored in an air tight container. I will use it with the cream filling as well as the peanut butter filling which my husband loved.

    These taste absolutely fabulous very close to my Chocolate-Coffee Cake, but the were flat and did not rise and looked like flat globs, any idea as to what went wrong?

    Why did you not list the 3/4 cup water in your recipe?
