Yummy is the one word I would use to describe this cupcake. It is filled with peanut butter cups in every delicious bite. The chocolate cream cheese frosting just melts on your tongue. Can you tell I like this one?

These go together pretty quickly. In the frosting I didn’t use the milk the recipe calls for and found I actually had to add another half cup of confectionery sugar to it to get the consistency I wanted.

  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoons banana extract (optional)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large ripe bananas, peeled, and mashed
  • 1 cup chopped peanut butter cups
  • Frosting
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, cold
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 3 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 1 (12-cup) muffin pan with paper cupcake liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Set aside.
  4. In a mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar with a mixer until light and fluffy.
  5. Add the sour cream, vanilla extract, and banana extract (if using).
  6. Slowly beat in the eggs, one at a time.
  7. Incorporate the dry mixture and wet mixtures together until thoroughly combined.
  8. Stir in the bananas and peanut butter cups.
  9. Using an ice cream scoop, fill each cupcake liner ¾ full.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops turn golden-brown and when a toothpick, inserted in the middle of the cupcake, comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
  11. Remove the cupcakes from the oven to a wire rack and let cool before frosting.
  12. For frosting: With mixer, cream together butter, cream cheese, and cocoa until blended. Add cooled chocolate and vanilla and mix well. Beat in powdered sugar. Add in 1-2 tbsp of milk…just enough to give you the desired consistency for frosting. Frost liberally!
