Ingredients Needed:

  • Flour + Baking soda + Nutmeg + Ground cinnamon + Baking powder
  • Sugar
  • Butter
  • Honey
  • Buttermilk
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla
  • Bananas
  • Powdered sugar
  • Peanut butter
  • Milk

No Buttermilk in your Fridge? Whisk 1 teaspoon of vinegar or lemon juice into 1/4 cup of milk. Let it sit for 5 minutes, than, proceed as noted in recipe.

Peanut Butter: I recommend using a regular peanut butter instead of the natural variety. The natural variety is delicious, but, has a higher oil content. This could affect the consistency of your glaze.

Want Extra Crunch? Top your cupcakes with crushed peanuts before the glaze sets.

What a great blend of flavors! PB and banana are a classic combo. I love the addition of the nuts on top-it adds a little salty crunch to that fluffy cake. Saving this recipe!
