Ingredients for cupcake
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup non-dairy butter

2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
1/4 cup peanut butter
Mini peanut butter cups

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Line a muffin pan with paper liners.

In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.

Combine flour and baking powder, add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in the milk until batter is smooth.

Mix in peanut butter.

Pour or spoon batter 1/4 of the way into the prepared pan. Add 1 peanut butter cup to each cupcake. Fill remaining batter on top of the peanut butter cup. It should cover the candy and be about 3/4 full.
