Better Than Banana Cream Pie Cupcake

Makes 24 cupcakes


• 2 1/2 cups flour
• 1 Tbsp. baking soda
• 1 tsp. cinnamon
• 1/8 tsp. salt
• 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
• 1 cup granulated sugar
• 3/4 cup packed lightbrown sugar
• 2 large eggs
• 1 tsp. vanilla extract
• 4 very ripe bananas, mashed
• 2/3 cup plain yogurt
• 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

• 1 package instant banana pudding
• 2 cups milk
• 1 tsp. vanilla extract

• 1 package instant vanilla pudding
• 1 cup milk
• 1 tsp. vanilla extract
• 8-oz. container extra-creamy whipped topping
• 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar

• 2 cups crushed cinnamon graham crackers
• banana slices (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners. In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside. In another large bowl, with electric mixer, cream butter with granulated sugar and brown sugar until light. Add eggs, one at a time, then vanilla. Add flour mixture alternately with -bananas and yogurt, mixing on low speed just until moistened. Batter will be lumpy; do not overmix. Gently fold in chopped walnuts.

2. Fill each muffin cup about three-quarters full. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Cool cupcakes 5 minutes in pan, then remove cupcakes to wire rack to cool completely.

3. Meanwhile, prepare filling and frosting. Mix banana pudding with milk according to package directions, adding vanilla. Chill for at least 30 minutes. For frosting, mix vanilla pudding with milk and vanilla; fold in whipped topping and confectioners’ sugar until frosting is creamy. Chill for at least 30 minutes to set.

4. Once cupcakes are cool, insert a paring knife into top of each cupcake, making a small hole in the center. Spoon filling mixture into a zip-top plastic bag. Snip off a small corner of the bottom. Squeeze about 1 Tbsp. filling into the hole in the top of each cupcake. Swirl frosting on top of each cupcake; sprinkle with graham-cracker crumbs. Top each with banana slices as desired. Keep chilled.

The directions mentioned yogurt! But there ius no mention of it in the ingredients. Im in the middle of making this know. Oh this sucks!!! Well no yogurt is going in it because im not sure how much and dont want to waste the batter.

can you line the cupcake with graham crackers or would that be too much?

Oh good! I love it when people post recipes they've made and they can offer some insight into what works and what didn't. Otherwise, it's just a regular old recipe like you can find anywhere. And believe me you...I'm always finding them everywhere!!! :feedme:
