  4. Add milk, vanilla and flour mixture. Beat until well blended.

TEST KITCHEN TIP: Place a bite-size peanut butter cup in the center of each cupcake just before baking. This will result in a peanut butter center once the cupcakes are baked. Frost with peanut butter frosting for an added peanut lover’s treat!!
