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 just put a batch of these in the oven. I followed the recipe exactly but I am a little worried. The batter was really thin. I was wondering if it is supposed to be like that?

    I made these for our congregation picnic bake-off and won! They were in such demand, I had to make another batch the next day. Thanks!!

    Looks really great! I am loving all of the pink. I have the lighter pink KitchenAid mixer, I couldn’t decide between your pink and the one I got-yours looks s pretty in all of the photos!

    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!

    great recipe! however, i’m from the UK, i’m not sure if you have canola oil here, what can be used as a replacement?

    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 😉
