Recipe: Banana Peanut Butter Cupcakes

If you’ve never tried the delicious combination of peanut butter and banana, you’re missing out. These delicious cupcakes have just the right amount of both!


Ingredients for cupcakes:

2 eggs

2 and a half cups flour

1 and a half cups white sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

Half tsp salt

1 cup of mashed bananas (about 3) The more ripe, the better.

3/4 cup milk

1/2 cup shorteneing

2 tsp vanilla


Ingredients for frosting-

1 cup of creamy peanut butter

1 stick of butter

2 cups powdered sugar

4 tbs milk

2 tsp vanilla


-Directions for cupcakes:

Dump all of your ingredients into a bowl. One of the reasons why I love this recipe is because you don’t have to mix anything specifically.



-After everything is mixed, your batter should be of a nice consistency.


-Line cupcake pan with cupcake liners and pour your batter in. I like to fill my cupcakes more than half full, almost to the top because I find it easier to frost when they are poped up above the liners.


-Bake in a 350 degree oven for around 20 minutes. I recommend watching your cupcakes though because oven times really vary. Take them out when they are fully cooked and a nice light golden brown.


-Take your cupcakes out and let them cool until they are completely cool.


-Directions for the peanut butter frosting-

Put all of your frosting ingredients in a bowl.


-Use a mixer to mix everything together nicely.


-Your frosting should be of a nice consistency with no lumps or bumps.


-Once your frosting is done and your cupcakes are completely cooled it’s time to frost!

You can either put your frosting in a ziplock bag and frost in circles, or you can simply frost with a knife like I did.



This recipe makes about 4 dozen cupcakes. Perfect for sharing while still getting plenty for yourself!

I halved the recipe thinking I didn’t want 4 dozen cupcakes sitting around. But I only got 1 dozen then. Very tasty!
