Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None

-For the Cupcakes
1 1/4 cups cake flour
1/2 c. unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 t. baking soda
1/4 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. plus 2 T. unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 c. granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1/2 c. buttermilk
1 t. vanilla extract
1/2 c. hot strong coffee
-For the Filling
1/2 c. unsalted butter, at room temp. 1 c. creamy PB, 1 3/4 c. sifted confectioners' sugar
-For the Ganache
4 oz. semisweet chocolate, roughly chopped
1/2 c. heavy cream
1 c. roasted peanuts, chopped

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line on 12-cup and one 6-cup muffin pan with paper or foil cupcake liners.
Make the cupcakes- Sift the cake flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and slat together three times. Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer at high speed for 15 seconds until combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until each is incorporated. Continue beating until light and fluffy, about 6 more minutes. With the mixer at its lowest speed, beat in one-third of the flour mixture. Beat in the buttermilk and vanilla, then another one-third of the flour mixture. Beat in the coffee and then the remaining flour mixture. Fill teh muffin cups halfway and bake for 25 minutes, or until the centers spring back when lightly pressed. Set the pans on a rack to cool.
Make the peanut butter filling- Beat the butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer at medium speed until blended. Reduce the speed to low and gradually beat in the confectioners' sugar. Increase the speed to high and beat for 3 to 5 minutes, until smooth and fluffy. Spoon the filling into a pastry bag fitted with a medium plain tip. Inswert the tip into the top of each cooled cupcake and squeeze approximately 1 1/2 T. filling into each cupcake.
Make the ganache frosting- Place the chocolate in a medium bowl. Heat the cream in a small saucepan until scalding. Pour the cream over the chocolate and let sit 1 minute, then whisk until smooth. Let sit 10 minutes, until thick but still pourable. Dunk the tops of the cupcakes into the frosting to coat, then place on a rack and sprinkle with the chopped peanuts. Transfer to the refrigerator for 20 minutes to set.
