Salam to all ;)
A new week starts tomorrow. Did everyone enjoy the weekend?? I am in Jannah's room right now, typing in the dark while waiting for her to go to sleep. She's been doing big yawns and been playing with her blanket and pillows since 8.15pm. It's been an hour and I am getting impatient, I hope she goes to sleep soon. She keeps on saying that she cant sleep bcos her legs are very sore. I checked....everything seems fine. She must be running and hopping around too much during the day I reckon......
My left eye is feeling a little 'hot' right now......adeeehhh!! I must have accidentally rubbed it after handling some chillies when I made dinner just now. At the same time my inner left ear is feeling extremely itchy, somebody must be gossiping and saying something evil abt me ahakkksss and the left side of my forehead is very, very itchy too. Feels like a pimple or two might pop on that area?? Probably!! Haiizzz.....so many things happening to me at the same time....all on the left side of the body >.<
U must be thinking that I might be addicted to chocolate and peanut butter to be making these cupcakes right after consuming the peanut butter cheesecake swirl brownie that I made a few days back hehehez. It's really true.....it feels that I didnt get enough of chocolate and peanut butter that's why I made these chocolate & peanut butter cupcakes :pp. I made half of the recipe for the cupcakes as well as the frosting and got 12 pieces with a little bit of frosting left over. Jannah specifically requested that I sprinkled 100s & 1000s for her cupcake. We really luv this cupcakes, its moist and bitter. Makes you want bite the sweet icing to match them. It really was a perfect match.....yummmmzzzz!!!!

Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cups cocoa powder (I used Valrhona)
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/3 cup water
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 9-inch round cake pans or line cupcake tins with paper liners.
Combine butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and mix on high for 3 minutes. Stir together cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Add to the butter mixture alternately with the water, beating until well blended.
For cakes, bake 30-35 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. For cupcakes, bake 20-25 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.
Peanut Butter Frosting
2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tbsp heavy cream
1 tbsp vanilla
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Beat the first five ingredients together until smooth and creamy. Slowly add the powdered sugar and continue beating until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Spread or pipe on cooled cupcakes.
Alhamdullilah, Jannah has gone to sleep ;) I might hit the sack soon....NitezzzZZZzz.
