On January 8, 1935 one of the most popular musicians was born, Elvis Presley. Elvis loved fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches… weird, I know. So to honor “The King” I made my version of his favorite sandwich, in a cupcake… Peanut Butter Banana Cupcakes!
Happy Birthday, Elvis!
Viva La Cupcake! A mini peanut butter cupcake topped with banana frosting and chopped peanuts!
Now, I’ve never made a banana frosting before, so I threw this one together and hoped it would turn out! In the end, I had too much frosting for the number of cupcakes I had so be forewarned, this makes LOTS of frosting!
Also, I only made 24 mini cupcakes. We can blame my cat for that because he decided to eat the batter before I could finish scooping it into the liners. Jerk. This recipe will probably make about 32 mini cupcakes.
The recipe for these peanut butter cupcakes came from Candace Nelson of Sprinkles Cupcakes. I saw a video of her making these and thought I could easily adapt it with what I had in my kitchen! The video is below!
