Breakfast Cupcakes

This recipe is from Weelicious. The only thing I change is that I add raisins because...well, why not!?
These are really easy and well loved by kids. What kid doesn't love cupcakes?...especially for breakfast!
Cupcake Ingredients
1 1/4 Cup Flour
2 Tsp. Baking Powder
Pinch of Salt
1/4 Cup Peanut Butter (you can substitute almond, cashew or even sunflower butter instead)
1 Egg
2Tbsp. Sugar
1 1/4 Cup Milk
Raisins (optional)
Preheat oven to 350F and heavily grease mini or regular muffin pans. If you are using muffin papers you will still need to grease them. Otherwise they will stick horribly!
Mix dry ingredients together. Mix peanut butter, egg and sugar until smooth. Add milk and mix until blended. Pour into dry ingredients and stir just enough to moisten. Dont overmix! I added the raisins at this point :)                                     
Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Frosting Ingredients
1/2 Cup Cream Cheese Softened
1/4 Cup Jam/Jelly/Preserves
Blend together until smooth (like icing!). Spread on top of cooled cupcakes. Or on warm ones but remember it will run :)

I make 1 tray of mini cupcakes (12) and 6 big cupcakes from this recipe. My 2 year old loves having these for breakfast...or lunch...or get the idea :)
