You’ve undoubtedly heard of smoked meats, like salmon and beef, and the results that you receive – jerky, in most cases. However, smoked cupcakes? Is that a real thing? Actually, yes, it is. These smoked cupcakes are made of cocoa powder, espresso powder, sugar, flour, and a bunch of the “standard” ingredients required of a typical chocolate cupcake. The only difference is that they are bathed in hickory smoke for an hour after they have been baked and cooled. Top them with coffee flavored Swiss meringue buttercream frosting after smoking them.

Overripe bananas are nothing to cry over. Instead of throwing them out, turn them into cupcakes! These banana chocolate chip coffee cupcakes contain mashed bananas and chocolate chips, like the name implies. However, they also have chopped walnuts, cinnamon, sour cream, flour, sugar, and several other things. Since they are “coffee cupcakes” (similar to coffee cake) they aren’t frosted. A light sprinkling of sugar on top is all that is needed!
