1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoon buttermilk

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine oil, sugar, and peanut butter then beat until creamy.
2. Add eggs and vanila and mix until well combined.
3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt.
4. Alternately add the dry ingredients and buttermilk into the batter.

Part 2
1. Scoop batter into cupcake pan with cupcake liners until almost full (cupcake will rise a little)
2. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees Farenheit for 15 minutes or toothpick inserted comes out clean.
3. Remove from oven and let it cool for 2 minutes until transferring to a wire rach to cool completely. Top with your favorite frosting and enjoy
