Banana Cupcakes with Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting

Today’s recipe was inspired by my recent 10pm snack of banana slices drizzled with melted dark chocolate. I arranged the slices nicely on a fancy plate, made myself a cup of tea, and was planning to slowly enjoy my snack as I finished up some photo edits for the evening.

I inhaled it all in about 5 second flat. I don’t even think I came up for air. Anyone who has self control around the combination of chocolate and banana – I applaud you.

The next day, I used the rest of my ripe bananas to make these banana chocolate chip cupcakes to bring to my friend Kristen’s house. Ultra ripe bananas are key to the cupcake’s flavor. Brown, heavily spotted bananas will make the very best banana cupcakes.


The cupcakes are the moistest cupcakes I’ve ever made. They’re soft and light, unlike a dense, tight-crumbed slice of banana bread. Even on day 2 – these banana cupcakes are still incredibly moist and soft. If you make cupcakes for a living, then you know finding a cupcake recipe that remains this way past day 1 is a major feat! You have the bananas, brown sugar, and buttermilk to thank for their moist texture.

Remember: don’t leave out that buttermilk!

Even without the frosting, these cupcakes are full of flavor. Complementary to their sweet banana flavor are the flavors of cinnamon and brown sugar. I can’t eat a banana baked good without brown sugar and cinnamon being present.


INGREDIENTS
Nutrition

  • 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
  • 10 tablespoons softened butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 mashed bananas
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1⁄2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk

FROSTING

  • 1⁄2 cup butter
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons milk (or as needed)
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
  2. Combine first three ingredients in a large bowl; mix well. Add banana, stirring well to combine. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cup and level with a knife.
  3. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt, stirring well with a whisk. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture alternately with 1/2 cup milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture; mix after each addition.
  4. Spoon the batter into 24 muffin cups lined with paper liners. Bake for 20 minutes or until cupcakes spring back easily when touched lightly in the center. Allow to cool, and frost if desired.
  5. To make frosting: Place the butter and peanut butter into a medium bowl, and beat with an electric mixer.
  6. Gradually mix in the sugar, and when it starts to get thick, incorporate milk one tablespoon at a time until all of the sugar is mixed in and the frosting is thick and spreadable. Beat for at least 3 minutes for it to get good and fluffy.
