White Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Cupcakes

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 🙂

How to Make The Best Banana Cupcakes

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!

    I love that this recipe is for 12 cupcakes. Thank you and looks delish. I have 2 ripe bananas sitting on my counter right now and getting tired of banana bread.

  2. Clover

    It’s not fair that I have a son with a penut allergy. I love all the penut butter desserts, and could eat them everyday.

  3. Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking

    What a fun and festive cupcake for Mother’s Day! These look so delicious and easy to make. Great recipe, Jenny!

  4. Karen @ Sugartown Sweets

    The cupcakes are so pretty! I love the photos..and your eye-catching mixer. 🙂

  5. Shannon

    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.

  6. Casey

    oh my gosh! I love the new look on the blog!! So bright and fresh 🙂

    p.s. The flavor combo in these cupcakes sound *dynamite*

  7. Trina H

    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.

  8. Renee T

    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!

    1. Renee T

      I made these on Saturday night to add to the dessert table for Mother’s day and they were a hit! YUMMY!! They will be made again and very soon! Thanks Jenny 🙂

  10. JulieD

    this looks amazing! I love that you combined white chocolate and peanut butter with bananas!!!

  11. Nikki @Pennes on a Platter

    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? 🙂

  12. Kathleen Richardson

    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.

  13. Nikki @Pennes on a Platter

    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?

  14. Jill @ Craft in a Northern Town

    These sound amazing! And I think I have all of the ingredients at home!

  18. Marisa

    Oelala! Those cupcakes look delicious! Really like peanut butter and banana, haven’t tried it with white chocolate yet. Saving the recipe, hopefully I can make some people happy with baking them :). Nice new design as well and I just LOVE your pink kitchen aid! I still have this really cheap hand mixer to work with..some day…I’ll be looking at such a great kitchen aid in my kitchen! You need to have dreams haha.

  19. Emilie @ Emilie's Enjoyables

    Seriously all my favorite flavors. and TJ Maxx is the best place to find great kitchen accessories!

  20. KATHY

    am really anxious to try to make some cupcakes. I’ve tried before and they just didn’t turn out good… don’t know what the secret is, either in the pan or the liners — but I’m so jealous when I see some pretty cupcakes…. 🙂

  21. Bee (Quarter Life Crisis Cuisine)

    Oh goodness–I am LOVING all the pink in these pictures! So cool! And I am beyond jealous–mostly of your mixer, but also a bit for the cupcake wrappers.
