The "Denny" Cupcake

This recipe is dedicated to my Dad, who says normal words in funny ways (Cinderfella), bakes the best sugar cookies ever, eats food in weird combinations (peanut butter and banana or peanut butter and mayo sandwiches) and always has a story to tell the grand kids.

I am a loser and forgot to call him on his actual birthday this year, so just for you Dad...


The "Denny" Cupcake

1 box German Chocolate Cake mix (this is his fave cake flavor, but regular chocolate would work too)
1 c. mayonnaise (low fat works)
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1/4 c. water
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix it all together and fill your cupcake liners 2/3 full. Bake at 350 deg for 15-18 minutes until the cake springs back.

Frost with cream cheese frosting or this recipe from Wendy Paul

Peanut Butter Frosting
1 c. peanut butter, smooth or creamy
1/2 c. butter at room temperature
2 c. powdered sugar
3-4 Tbsp. milk or cream
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine peanut butter and butter in large bowl, mix until fluffy. Stop mixer. Add sugar, $ Tbsp. milk and vanilla. Start slowly, gradually increasing speed. Mix until smooth and creamy. Add 1 Tbsp. of milk if too thick.
