  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup dried pineapple pieces, loosely chopped
  • 1/2 cup macerated strawberries
  • 1 cup walnuts, loosely chopped, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup mashed bananas, about 2 bananas

  • chocolate syrup, to taste

For the Cupcakes:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl.

Mix in eggs, yogurt, flour, and baking soda.

Stir in 1 cup mashed bananas, strawberries, pineapple, chocolate chips, and walnuts.

Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full.

Bake for twenty-five minutes or until the tops bounce back when lightly touched.


For the Banana Whipped Cream Frosting:

Whip heavy whipping cream and sugar until light and fluffy.

Mix in bananas until just combined.

Frost cupcakes.

Drizzle with chocolate syrup.

Top with walnuts, banana slices, and a cherry.


*A non-ripened banana can be used by microwaving it for 45 seconds (or until it is soft but not liquid), then letting it return to room temperature.
