Chocolate Peanut Butter Cakes

Chocolate and peanut butter work so well together and cakes are a perfect way to pair the two. Delectable, moist chocolate cupcakes covered in a layer of peanut butter frosting. Great to make with the kids and get them baking! These are of course gluten free but also dairy free, this recipe calls for soya milk rather than regular milk!
