  • 4 tries, and pounds of bananas, and more muffins than I knew what to do with, I thought, let me just go "there". I mean it was already a CAKE mix. How could this turn out bad? And why was I beating myself up so much for "resorting" to a box mix when I am loud and proud about how I have 10 in my pantry at any given time?!? I made a decision, at that moment, that no matter what I did, I couldn't mess this one up. And boy was I right. Perfection. The perfect flavor combo if you enjoy these flavors, one doesn't outweigh the other, and well, just trust me.
  • 12 ounces peanut butter chips (not regular peanut butter friends, you need CHIPS)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 T butter
  • 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, begin to mix with a whisk. Whisk until the peanut butter chips are melted, add in the butter and whisk until incorporated. Set aside.
  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 tsp banana extract or essence
  • 3 bananas just crushed up with a fork. (leave some chunks)
  • 24 cupcakes. Bake for 24-28 minutes. You need a few extra minutes with the extra moisture from the bananas. Take out and let cool completely.
