Marbled Cupcake with Ganache Glaze

I wanted to try a marble cupcake simply because I couldn’t decide between vanilla or chocolate. What I like most about these cupcakes is that you can easily make them whenever you want because you don’t need to wait for the butter to soften. Also, it can easily be modified to make them have a peanut butter flavor by adding peanut butter or toasted soy spread to the chocolate batter. You can also put a filling in such as Nutella which would make them extra yummy. Enjoy!
