      HOW TO MAKE BANANA SPLIT CUPCAKES:

      For Cupcakes:

      Preheat oven to 350° and

  • place paper baking cups into 24 regular-sized muffin cups. You haveta haveta haveta use regular or jumbo size cupcakes for these. There is no way to make them mini. Trust me – no one wants a mini banana split cupcake anyway.

    In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt.

    In a large bowl, cream sugar, butter, and eggs. 

    Next, add vanilla extract and ripe mashed bananas. Did you know the brown spots on bananas are called sugar spots? They’re called that because of how sweet they are.

    On a low speed, alternate blending in dry mixture and milk.

    Fill each muffin cup up about 2/3 full and bake for 20-25 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool thoroughly before frosting.


  • For Frosting

    Beat butter with an electric mixer at medium-high speed until creamy. 

    Gradually beat in sugar until smooth. You want to have a super smooth texture for this recipe that way it’ll hold shape better for later!

    Beat in vanilla and gradually add milk until desired consistency is reached.

    Separate frosting into three bowls, set the ‘vanilla’ bowl aside, it is done.

    Mix cocoa into ‘chocolate bowl’, then set aside.

    Mix strawberry flavoring and food dye into ‘strawberry bowl’

    Using a melon baller, or very small ice cream scoop, place one small scoop of each ‘flavor’ onto each cupcake, in a row.


  • For Topping:

    Press a banana spear onto each side of the frosting row so it looks like a banana split. Top with sprinkles and drizzle with chocolate sauce. 

    Place one maraschino cherry on top of each.

    Invite all of your friends over and brag about how you just threw these together.

    Enjoy basking in their envy.banana split cupcakes4
