It’s a banana cupcake with peanut butter frosting, from VCTOTW. And chocolate chips, because I’ve been craving the peanut butter-chocolate-banana combo like none other.

I’m pretty sure I bought the exact kind of pb they said not to in the buttercream recipe. It’s supposed to be smooth and stable;  I got the slightly gritty “natural” kind that separates really easy. As a result, the frosting texture is a little off (although the flavor rocks). The majority of the jar of pb I bought is going towards personal consumption, not cupcakes, so I’ll do whatever I want! The flavor of natural pb is so much better: so rich and savory, and it’s gratifying to look at the ingredients and just see “peanuts, salt.” Very minimalist.



  1. that looks way more appetizing knowing that it’s got real peanut butter flavour. Actually, that just looks plain appetizing (luscious!), send me one? :DD

  3. No, no, no! That frosting turned out amazingly! If only I could taste it now…

    That combination sounds like one killer cupcake.

  5. I kinda like the natural-looking gritty icing they’ve got going on. Maybe it’s just me being a weird vegan, but part of me goes ‘yum!’ when I know the ingredients are real. and maybe gritty and hippie-foodish, ha ha. seriously, tho, yummy looking cakes!
