Hi! I'm hibernating under my electric blanket whilst perpetually sipping hot tea. Wing It Vegan is on hiatus until I'm willing to come back out. Happy holidays!

Self-Frosting Peanut Butter Cupcakes - again! (and lots of sleepy ducks photos!)

Is there such thing as too much peanut butter and chocolate? No! Yesterday I made you Chocolate-Stuffed Peanut Butter Scones, and today I'm offering you Hannah Kaminsky's brilliantly delicious Self-Frosting Peanut Butter Cupcakes. I blogged about these last year, and Hannah gave me permission to share the recipe with you then. Thank you, Hannah! These self-frosting cuppies are from Hannah's cookbook My Sweet Vegan, which you probably own by now - and if you don't, you should!

Self-Frosting Peanut Butter Cupcakes
*NOM*

I love these cupcakes! They are also permanent residents at the Wing-It recipe binder and I probably make them a bit too frequently. They do work wonderfully with almond butter as well, in case you can't eat peanuts. Check out the recipe and enjoy!

Today I'm skipping my daily Netflix recommendation because I have lots of pictures of sleepy ducks to share. *you're getting veeeeeery sleepy*

Hello, sleepy baby! Won't you let me curl up with you?

From above, sometimes they remind me of rustic loaves of bread.

Are you still awake? See you tomorrow! :)

  1. Any recipe that does something all by itself is good with me. And, yes, I have the book so thanks for the tip.

    I'm humming lullabies, but maybe they're not needed.

    1. There should be more recipes that do things all by themselves ... Self-rolling sushi? Self-churning ice cream? Self-chopping onions?

    1. Yes! You will love them! Isn't Curly the cutest? He often has fluffy fluff in his nostrils and even hanging from the tip of his beak. And he's not big on keeping his beak clean - it's usually muddy and gunky. Manners, Curly! Manners!

    1. I know! I want to bring them all into the house and teach them tricks and knit them little sweaters and hug them and squeeze them and call them George! But the poop situation might get out of hand! :P

    1. It's a good starting point! You can't go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter. I think my first one was the Chocolate-Glazed Peanut Butter Scones. So good!
