Emily is a 25 year old foodie from Missouri with a wide variety of recipes. Check out her Hanukah recipes. Very impressive. Better than my Bubby used to bake.

Peanut Butter-Banana Cupcakes

I just found this recipe and had to share it here.
This cupcake will give you visions of peanut butter and bananas topped
with marshmallow cream cheese frosting. What a yummy cupcake!
Thank you Emily!

1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons creamy natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
3/4 cup finely mashed ripe banana
1/2 cup milk

4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup marshmallow cream

1/3 cup milk chocolate chips, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 12 muffin cups with wrappers.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together peanut butter, butter and brown sugar until creamy, about 1 minute. Beat in vanilla, eggs and banana until well combined, about 1 minute. Beat in flour mixture gradually, alternating with milk, until well combined (Don’t forget to scrape down sides of bowl!).

Divide batter evenly into muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees F, for 20-23 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into cake comes out with moist crumbs attached. Cool for 15 minutes before transferring cakes to a wire rack to cool completely.

To make the frosting, in a medium sized mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat cream cheese until creamy, about 1 minute. Beat in butter until well combined. Beat in marshmallow cream until well combined. Spread frosting on cupcakes. Drizzle with melted milk chocolate chips.

Yield: 12 cupcakes
