These Banana Split Cupcakes are the perfect dessert for any occasion. The banana cake base was so tasty and full of flavor. You will love this fun twist on banana splits, and I am sure everyone will be raving about these cupcakes.
These cupcakes would so fun for a birthday and will be the hit of any party.
The cake part is a banana cake made from scratch (and it tastes amazing), but if you wanted to, you really could use a yellow or white cake mix.
However, to get the full banana split effect, I recommend making the banana cupcakes. They are fairly easy to whip up and taste so good.
They add the perfect amount of banana flavor, and really make these cupcakes delicious. You will not regret the banana add in. It is amazing.
what is the best way to store these?
I love this recipe, and my family does as well, that we usually don’t have many leftover. However, if you do have some leftover, the best way to store them is putting them in the fridge.
We recommend placing them in an air tight storage container, and putting them in the fridge.
If you aren’t going to eat them for more than a week, we recommend freezing them. Again the best way to freeze them is placing them in an airtight storage container and putting them in the freezer.
They will last nicely in the freezer for about 2 weeks, and in the fridge, about 3-5 days.
To thaw them, we recommend placing them in the fridge overnight and serving them the next day. We don’t recommend microwaving them, because the frosting will melt.
our secret to piping on frosting:
Frosting can be a little tricky, especially when you are trying to make it look nice.
For this recipe, all we did was put the frosting in a ziplock bag, and pipe it on, by cutting a small hole in the corner.
Before you start piping it on the cupcakes, you could also pipe it onto aluminum foil, for extra practice.
banana cupcake add ins:
These cupcakes is delicious as is. However I like adding a little extra something to the batter. Here are a few add ins we highly recommend:
M & M’s
Peanut Butter Chips
Walnuts or pecans
Cream cheese swirls
