Here lately I’ve been baking a lot of cupcakes.  I’ve made Blueberry Pie CupcakesBanana Pudding Cupcakes, and Hot Fudge Sunday Cupcakes.  I am loving all the variations you can get from a cupcake.

These cupcakes are a healthy alternative to regular cupcakes, because they are made with peanut  butter.  They make great treats for the kids, too.
