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.
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!
