Last night after a lovely and five alarm spicy meal of homemade Chana Masala and Mushroom Curry I made cupcakes.
Banana cupcakes with chocolate chips in the cake. Peanut Buttercream Frosting with banana, white chocolate and a hint of Frangelica.
The cakes turned out lovely, slightly dense and lightly banana flavored. The chips add a rich sweet burst to every bite. The frosting is thick and frothy, mounded on top with a delicate peanut flavor and just a hint of banana. It melts on your tongue without being overly sweet or overly sticky. The peanut butter was from Peanut Butter & Co and is their White Chocolate Wonderful product. Yummy but I think I prefer the Dark Chocolate Dream just a bit better.
Overall this is a rich, decadent and subtly flavored dessert that I created based on the Banana Cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. I think I would definitely make these again, perhaps with peanut butter in the batter next time!
