Super Moist Banana Cupcakes with salted caramel.

Who doesn't like cupcakes? I have yet to meet a person you doesn't. Especially if the cupcake is topped with a delicious, rich and smooth icing and filled with a salty caramel goodness.

I was lucky enough to receive a jar of gooey salted caramel homemade by my good friend, Thanh. And what good why to use it up? I used it as a filling in my banana cupcakes. Bananas and caramel are a match made in heaven.

I got the recipe for the cupcakes from one of my women's weekly baking books. As for the salted caramel, I have never actually made them before so you will be able to google the recipe or have a very good friend make it for you šŸ™‚

Banana cupcake recipe:
  • 90g softened butter
  • 100g firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 75g self raising flour
  • 75g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarb soda
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice
  • 2/3 cup mashed overripe bananas
  • 80g sour cream
  • 2 tbs milk
  1. Preheat the overn to180degC (160degC fanforced) and line a 12 hole standard muffin pan with paper cases.
  2. Beat butter, sugar and eggs in a small bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  3. Stir in the sifted dry ingredients and the rest of the ingredients. Divide mixture between the cases.
  4. Bake for about 20 mins. Turn cakes onto wire racks to cool.
  5. When cooled, slice the cupcakes horizontally and fill with your favourite filling. Pipe the top with the cream cheese frosting (recipe below).

  1. Cherrie darling, loving your photos!

    I need to use my salted caramel too. I think i have an idea, just no time!

  2. Um… so I’m someone who normally has no interest in cupcakes. However, this, with the salted caramel and the spices… I’m in. Though maybe without the frosting? I’m not a frosting girl. Yes Just weird all around, me!
