Banana and Peanut Butter Cupcakes

These banana and peanut butter cupcakes are totally my jam! I adore the mishmash of banana and peanut butter and cupcakes are really simple and easy to prepare – so this is a winning combination! Here is the recipe:

Servings 12


For the cupcakes:

  • 50 grams butter, at room temperature
  • 100 grams peanut butter, plus around 30 grams for decorating
  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 150 grams caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 150 grams plain flour


  • Peanut butter frosting

To garnish:

  • Peanut butter (optional)
  • Banana slices (optional)
  • Chocolate sauce (optional)



  • Preheat the oven to 360°F/180°C/Gas Mark 4. Line a cupcake tin with paper cupcake cases.
  • Using an electric mixer, on low speed, beat together the sugar, peanut butter, and butter until creamy. Whisk in the eggs, one at a time, whipping well after each addition. Add in the mashed banana until well incorporated then apply the flour until just combined. Spoon the batter evenly into the paper cupcake cases.
  • Place in the oven; bake for around 20-25 minutes (or just until a tester inserted into the middle comes out clean).
  • Remove and leave to cool before frosting. To finish, spread a little peanut butter over the top and/or add a banana slice; drizzle with chocolate sauce (if desired).
