I am always looking to try new cupcake recipes for my developing baking business. When my cousin Robyn came to visit this weekend I asked her what she wanted to do. One of her requests was to bake something together. I LOVED this idea because I get excited about any opportunity to bake. We looked through our Pinterest pages for inspiration and then, remembering a conversation we had about the five foods we couldn’t live without from the night before, began googling cupcake recipes with peanut butter. We came across this beauty and could not resist. Combining peanut butter, bananas, AND white chocolate…I mean really? This was amazing. The cupcake is moist, slightly dense and delicious. The frosting is out of this world and adds a sweet peanut butter finish to this delight. Try it yourself, or place an order with Sweet Success CC today!
