White Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Banana Cupcakes

Tags: , ,

Desserts

I had so much fun developing this cupcake last week.   Not sure we’ve ever devoured cupcakes so fast around here, lol!  They were just good, that’s all there is to it.

I created a simple peanut butter, banana and white chocolate cupcake that is about to rock your taste buds.  Not kidding.  Can’t wait for you to try these.

Be sure to check out KitchenAid and Cook For The Cure for a wonderful cause! …..AND don’t forget to enter the KitchenAid Giveaway on Picky Palate tomorrow.  These goodies are up for grabs.

 

Pretty simple line up for you.  How pretty are those cupcake liners?!  I found them at TJ MAXX a few months ago.  Score!

 

I have to admit I still stare at my new Raspberry Ice KitchenAid every time I walk in the kitchen :)

Let’s get started shall we?  Some sugar please!

Two pretty eggs.

Some creamy peanut butter.

A little oil and sour cream.

Two very ripe mashed bananas.

Alright, mix this beautiful batter.

Time for a white chocolate sauce.  Pour hot milk over some white chips and stir until melted.  You will probably have to microwave a bit longer after stirring the milk in.  Be patient, it does happen :)  Once it does, add it to the batter and mix.

Add your dry ingredients.

…..and fill em’ up.  3/4 way full works great.

Frost with my simple peanut butter butter cream then top with some crispy banana chips and a white chocolate square.  I used THIS white chocolate bar cut into rectangles.  I found it in my baking isle at the grocery store.

I love these.  Can’t wait to make them again.  Enjoy!

White Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Banana Cupcakes

1/2 cup white chocolate chips

1/4 cup milk

2 large eggs

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 very ripe bananas

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup canola oil

1/2 cup sour cream

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1 cup all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Frosting

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 stick unsalted butter, softened

2-3 cups powdered sugar

1/4-1/2 cup milk

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line 20 muffin cups with paper liners.

2. Place white chips in a medium bowl. Place milk into a microwave safe bowl and heat until hot, about 45 seconds. Pour over white chips, stirring until melted.

3. Add eggs, sugar, bananas, peanut butter, oil, sour cream and vanilla to stand mixer, beating until well combined. Drizzle in melted chocolate until combined. Place flour, salt and baking soda into a medium bowl, mixing to combine. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mixing until well combined. Scoop batter into lined muffin cups, filling about 3/4 way full. Bake for 18-22 minutes until baked through. Remove and let cool completely.

4. Beat Butter and peanut butter until creamy and smooth. Add powdered sugar and milk until you have a nice frosting consistency. Spread over cooled cupcakes. Top with banana chips and white chocolate squares if desired.

Makes 12 cupcakes

    Your redesign is PERFECT, Jenny! Love the little logo between Picky Palate, with the silverware bundle. Cute, cute, cute!

    These cupcakes sound wonderful. The liners ARE very fun, but where did you get the adorable cake stand?

    I love it that you just posted this entry today and already there are over 60 comments. Way to go. Your new header is the best. Bananas, peanut butter and white chocolate… yes, a definite go-together. I think I’m a little jealous of your Kitchen Aid. Mine is RED and wonderful, but I could pass it on to my daughter and live with Raspberry Ice. See you tomorrow.

    I absolutely am in love with everything about this post – the cupcakes, liners, the mixer (in need of one so bad!), and the raspberry color! Love the new look too. I noticed it late last night when I couldn’t sleep!

    Question: Do you think this would work well as a cake if I were to double or triple the recipe?

    Thanks!

    Love banana any type of cake and white is my favourite chocolate marriage made in heaven. Also love the ever so cute patty cases.

    Look forward to some bananas browning soon in my house, then these shall be made, might have to hide some from the kids.

    These look fab! I love the peanut butter frosting I could eat it with spoon, on a banana, on a gram cracker, or on banana bread! In short I haven’t found anything it isn’t good on.

    Hi there :-) these look ahhh-mazing!!! Now you are probably the most genius food creator I’ve ever seen. I would love to make these cupcakes but unfortunately I am allergic to sodium bicarbonate. Yup. No baking soda, baking powder, leaving…..Stinks. So if anyone could come up with an alternative it would be you. Got any ideas??? You’d be my hero ;-)

  34. 84
    Kathryn says:

    I made these just after I sent my previous question (I got 16 out of the batch). I took them to a potluck last night, and they were a huge success! The cupcakes were so flavorful and moist and the frosting was divine. Thanks for another hit, Jenny!

    […] Eating these white chocolate peanut butter and banana cupcakes always brings me back to my childhood years. These are just like the tasty banana and peanut butter sandwiches I ate as a child. Just as I have grown up and come a long way, so has my simple childhood dessert.
