Posted by SugarSugarDessertsRecipe for Banana Pudding Cupcakes : I saw the idea on other sites but I put this recipe together myself. It is a banana cake with pudding filling and buttercream icing
- Cake: 1 box yellow cake mix (I used Betty Crocker) plus all the ingredients listed to make the cake on the back of the box 3 Large Ripe Banana's mashed up 1/4 cup lite brown sugar packed 1 to 1 1/4 tsp banana extract flavoring 1 package banana cream pudding mix instant Filling : 1 package french vanilla pudding mix (instant) 2 cups cold milk 1 banana Vanilla Wafers Buttercream: 1/2 cup butter 1/2 cup shortening 1 tsp vanilla 4 cups powder sugar
Mix all cake ingredients and bake cupcakes according to directions on cake mix box Bake and cool 24-26 cupcakes in liners Once cool, cut out center of cupcake for filling Mix pudding according to box instructions and place in piping bag. Place a slice or 2 of banana in each cupcake center hole. fill rest of hole with pudding (I stick the slice of banana in sideways and fill both sides and top of hole with filling). Cover top of cupcake with vanilla wafer, basically stick wafer on top of cupcake covering filling hole. It will stick to pudding and stay in place. Make Buttercream. Place in piping bag and pipe swirl on cupcakes. Garnish with another vanilla wafer and crushed wafers on top.
