Peanut Butter and Banana Cupcakes

The Story:
            Peanut butter and banana. 
            Today I found out I’m not really a fan unless it comes in cupcake form. 
            Your Homebased Mom sent me this recipe from Annie’s Eats and I decided to give it a try. 
Peanut Butter and Banana Cupcakes
Banana Cakes:
1 ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 stick  (½ cup) butter, softened
1 ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
4 eggs
1 cup mashed banana
2/3 cup buttermilk*
Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting:
8 oz cream cheese
4 tablespoons butter, softened
½ cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups powdered sugar
¼ cup heavy cream
8 fun size butterfingers

1.     Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.    Sift together flour, baking powder and salt.  Set aside.
3.    In a separate bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
4.    Add one egg at a time and then add mashed banana.
5.    Alternate adding flour and buttermilk until everything is combined.  Don’t over mix. 
6.   Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full and bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
7.    Frosting: Beat cream cheese and butter until light.  Add peanut butter and let mix for 2 minutes.  Alternate adding powdered sugar and heavy cream.  (Only add as much powdered sugar as you want, some like it sweeter than others.)
8.   Pipe onto cooled cupcakes.
9.   Use crushed butterfingers to top. 

*For buttermilk, I always use regular milk and put in a splash of two of lemon juice.  Also, this frosting makes enough to pipe 24 cupcakes.  So if you plan to hand frost them and not use as much frosting as  piping would, then half the recipe.
