Instructions

Cake

  • Preheat oven to 175C/350F.
  • Line a standard 12 cup muffin tin with silicon cupcake molds or cupcake papers.
  • In your stand mixer, add the peanut butter, melted butter, Natvia, salt, vanilla and baking powder.
  • Cream ingredients together using the whisk attachment.
  • Add the egg one by one, while the stand mixer is mixing on a medium speed.
  • Stop the mixer and scrape down the sides, add the cocoa powder and turn the mixer back on very slowly.
  • Add the coconut flour and heavy cream and mix until combined and free from lumps. Allow the mixture to sit for 2 minutes, so the coconut can soak up all the liquids.
  • Evenly spoon the mixture amongst the 12 prepared muffin tin holes.
  • Bake for 15-19 minutes. Cupcakes are cook when an inserted skewer comes out with a few crumbs clinging to it.
  • Set aside to cool.

Frosting

  • In your clean stand mixer bowl, add the softened butter and peanut butter.
  • Cream with the whisk attachment until smooth.
  • Add the icing mixture a few tablespoons at a time on low speed, until it is all mixed it.
  • If your frosting is too firm, add the heavy cream a tablespoon at a time until your frosting is smooth and pipable.
  • Spoon your frosting into a piping bag with a star tip.
  • Pipe the frosting onto your cooled cupcakes.
  • Enjoy immediately or refrigerate for 30 minutes to firm up the frosting. Store any remaining cupcakes in the fridge for up to 1 week.
