The best way we know to feed a lot of people is to bake! What better thing to bake than our all-around favorite, banana bread. This is a super simple way to turn Cherryvale Farms baking mix into a delicious treat — use the banana bread mix to make delicious cupcakes

Ingredients

For the banana bread cupcakes:

  • 1 box of Cherryvale Farms Organic Banana Bread Mix
  • 1/2 Cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 Cup water
  • 3 ripe bananas

For the peanut butter frosting:

  • 1 1/2 Cup powdered sugar
  • 1 eight-ounce package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 Cup smooth peanut butter

Directions

For the banana bread cupcakes:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Prepare a 12-cup muffin tin by greasing the cups with oil or butter. Or, feel free to use cupcake baking liners if you like. Mix banana bread mix according to box directions and divide evenly among the 12 muffin cups. For smaller muffins with a more rounded top, fill about 16 muffin cups 1/2 full.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cupcakes comes out clean.

For the peanut butter frosting:

Prepare the frosting by first sifting powdered sugar into a large bowl. Add cream cheese, butter, and peanut butter. Using an electric mixer, beat mixture until smooth.

Allow cupcakes to cool completely before frosting. You can use a frosting bag and tip to create fun frosting designs on the top of your cupcakes, or simply spread with a spoon.

Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Peanut Butter Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
