I have been wanting to make some cupcakes but with peanut butter frosting for a while.. I have a mega cupcake adventure coming up in the next few weeks so I wanted to put this amazing frosting to the test.. Who would love peanut butter more than The King himself?

Elvis Cupcakes
Made up from memories of a few recipes.


Super Moist Banana Cupcakes
From BB's cooking folder :D

Makes approximately 15-18

1 2/3 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bi-carb
1/4 tsp salt
3 medium overripe bananas
1/3 cup full cream milk
125g unsalted butter
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4-1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips

Line a 12 capacity cupcake tray with patty pans and preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

Mix flour, baking powder, bi-carb, and salt into a bowl, set aside.

In another bowl, mix the bananas, vanilla and milk, set aside.

In your main mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, add in eggs one at a time. Beat until well combined, light and fluffy. Be careful not to over beat.

Pour in 1/3 of dry ingredients, followed by 1/2 of the wet. Ensure that you end with the last 1/3 of the dry ingredients.

Add chocolate chips and fold in gently, try not to knock out too much air.

Add batter into paper lined muffin tin (adding extra choc chips on top for presentation), I like to use the 1/4 measurement cup as this ensures that they are universal in size and pop into the oven!

I bet you are wondering what took up the other 6 spots in my pan.. Well those will be posted shortly :)

Cook for 15-20 Minutes!

When a skewer comes out clean, remove and set aside to cool.
