Peanut Butter Banana Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

I took this picture yesterday of my handsome Madison, staring out into the garden from the kitchen window.

Today I've decided to make some cupcakes, seems like ages since I last baked any. I had some ripe bananas in the fruit bowl and I remembered this recipe whilst browsing on Nicole’s Baking Bites Blog (one of my favourite blogs). These cupcakes are really scrumptious; the banana and peanut butter flavours compliment each other wonderfully and the sponge has a light fluffy texture. I finished off the cupcake with a peanut butter frosting to play up the peanut butter even more (my boys adore peanut butter, so they won’t complain).

Hi Bimmer

Thanks for the lovely comment. I have to say these cupcakes are a peanut butter lovers idea of bliss.

Oh my you have been busy since I last checked in :)

Those cupcakes look marvellous and what a great idea to make peanut butter frosting. I bet your boys were so happy to demolish these!

Hi Ruth

Thanks! Madison loves getting into our bed too but he loves nothing more than snuggling in and sleeping with us. His one very pampered kitty ;o)
