banana cupcakes with peanut butter & honey frosting...

Today, I am craving peanut butter... and in honor of national honey month, I went on a search for the perfect cupcake recipe - banana cupcakes with peanut butter & honey frosting! 

If you've ever had peanut butter frosting, you know there literally is nothing more amazing... but to add honey? this could be dangerous... time to go to the gym...

For frosting

For Frosting
  • Cream butter and cream cheese until light fluffy in a standing bowl mixer on low-medium speed for about 3 minutes.
  • Add the peanut butter until combined and then add honey to taste. (I used a little bit more than 2 tbs to get it where I wanted it)
  • Add the powdered sugar and combine on low speed until incorporated.
