Peanut butter and bananas were one of Elvis Presley’s favorite food combinations. Yes, the combo of the two does sound a little strange – until you try it! These peanut butter and banana cupcakes are made slightly differently than you’d think. The cupcake contains bananas, sour cream, flour and whole bunch of other things, except for peanut butter. That comes in the frosting, which is a peanut butter cream cheese blend. You’ll find these to be quite addictive!

These Raffaello cupcakes get their name from the Rafaello pralines in the frosting. The cupcakes themselves are flavored with almonds, as well as coconut. Once they have been baked and have had a chance to cool off, they are topped with a nutty frosting made from combining whipping cream and Nutella. A little coconut is sprinkled on top, as well as one of the aforementioned pralines. The results are a nutty, coconut-y, cupcake!

Vanilla, vanilla, and more vanilla. Vanilla is what these cupcakes are all about. Itís a chocolate lovers world out there, but itís about time the vanilla lovers unite and start making some truly tasty desserts. I was getting a bit of a chocolate overload recently. It seems that most people just canít make a dessert without adding chocolate somewhere. Well you wonít find a hint of chocolate in these Vanilla Cupcakes with Vanilla Cream Cheese Icing. They are light and airy, yet somehow still super moist. They are also super versatile and can be topped with anything from nuts to sprinkles to fruit.

Inspired by the Take 5 candy bars these Take 5 Cupcakes have the flavors of chocolate, peanut butter, pretzels, and caramel. The delicious and thick batter made with sour cream and chocolate pudding is perfect for baking the candy bars right into it. They are like little hidden gems hidden inside the cake. The peanut butter buttercream frosting smeared on top is a perfect compliment and the chocolate drizzle is gooey and delicious.

Maple and walnut are classic flavor combinations for a reason. They taste awesome together! Whether you are making maple walnut bread, pancakes, or cakes just one whiff of the maple and toasted walnuts together and you know that you are on the right path. These Maple Walnut Cupcakes are simply scrumptious. The cupcake batter is a simple vanilla cupcake recipe, but with the addition of chopped walnuts. The highlight of the day though has to be the creamy maple buttercream frosting. I could just lick the bowl and be happy all day. Try topping with some candied walnuts for a touch of class.
