Eat This: Cupcake with Pan Fried Peanut Butter

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Happy 74th Birthday, Elvis! If you were alive today (oh wait, conspiracy theory #1445 says you are alive), you would have loved this cupcake with one of your favorite foods that we just tasted at Crumbs Bake Shop.

Peanut butter based cupcakes usually don't taste very peanut butter-like. That was until Crumbs used a rich swirl of--oh my God--pan fried peanut butter in today's special treat. Mixed in with peanut butter and banana frosting atop a banana flavored yellow cake filled with banana cream, we ate the large $3.75 cupcake in only a few short minutes (so long resolution for the day).

Select Crumbs locations will continue carrying the treat throughout the month, but they will be available throughout today at their three Los Angeles locations in Beverly Hills, Glendale and Larchmont Village.
