The Elvis Cupcake

recipe here

So what do you do when you have a bunch of over-ripe bananas? Why, you make banana cupcakes of course! I usually bake banana bread from super ripe bananas but today I thought I'd try something a little different- Elvis Presley's favorite combo of peanut butter and banana.

I found an awesome recipe for banana cupcakes with peanut butter frosting on one of my favorite recipe sites, Epicurious.com. I also love that Epicurious has a pretty good App for my iPhone. Love apps.

These cupcakes not only look good, they are also very tasty- to quote my favorite gal Rachel Ray- "Yum-O!" I ended up eating 4 of these in a row so it's a good thing I made them mini sized.....mini peanut butter and banana cupcake, you may look like an angel, but you're the devil in disguise!

rising to perfection!
peanut butter frosting- so delicious
topped with a banana chip- you can add nuts on top too 
why.... hello! so cute.
Do you love the combination of peanut butter and bananas? If so, what's your favorite PB + banana recipe?
