I love surprising my son once in a while with a peanut butter and banana cupcake tucked in his lunch box.  This fun dessert is so simple to prepare and is a great weekend breakfast treat for the entire family to enjoy.  It also makes a great monkey dessert at jungle inspired birthday parties.

What you'll need

  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter plus more for frosting
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 firm bananas, sliced in rounds for garnish

How to make it

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. In a large bowl, mix 3 tablespoons peanut butter, butter and brown sugar until smooth.

  3. With mixer still running, carefully add eggs, one at a time and beat until fluffy.
