An award winning cupcake. Frost with a peanut butter ganache frosting to take it to the next level. Roasting the bananas caramelizes them and gives the cupcakes a pronounced banana flavor and keeps the cupcakes very moist. Tastes good with vanilla or cream cheese frosting also.

How to Make Roasted Banana Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place bananas on a cookie sheet and place in a 350 degree preheated oven and roast for 15 minutes or until the skins turn black. Let cool. Peel the bananas, then cut into pieces. Set aside.
  • 2Keeping the oven at 350 degrees, line two cupcake pans with 18 paper liners. Set aside.
  • 3In a medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Set aside.
  • 4In a large bowl, beat together the sugar and oil until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until smooth. Beat in the vanilla, then beat in the banana pieces until smooth. Gradually beat in the flour mixture.
  • 5Fill cupcake liners about halfway full with the batter.
    Bake 18-20 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle.
    Cool.
  • 6FROSTING:
    In a large mixing bowl, add the chocolate pieces and the peanut butter. Set aside.
  • 7In a medium saucepan, heat up the cream and corn syrup until just boiling. Turn off the heat and pour on top of the chocolate. Let sit a few minutes, then whisk the chocolate mixture until smooth. Let cool completely.
  • 8Once cool, gradually beat the butter into the chocolate mixture, a tablespoon at a time, until smooth and shiny.
