Moist vanilla cupcakes filled with banana pudding and topped with whipped cream. I use homemade pudding and whipped cream for this recipe but you can use store-bought instead if pressed for time.

  • Place 1 vanilla wafer flat-side down in the bottom of each cupcake liner.

  • Blend vanilla cake mix, water, eggs, and vegetable oil in a large bowl with an electric mixer on low speed until moistened, about 30 seconds. Beat at medium speed until smooth, about 2 minutes. Fold in mashed bananas and 1 cup crushed wafers. Scoop batter into prepared tins.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer cupcakes to a wire rack to cool, about 30 minutes.

  • Combine vanilla pudding and sliced banana in a small bowl.

  • Scoop out tops of cooled cupcakes, leaving a small hole in the middle of each. Fill holes with pudding mixture. Place a heaping spoonful of whipped cream on each cupcake; garnish with remaining 2/3 cup crushed vanilla wafers.

This is a great recipe that tastes very similar to a traditional southern style banana pudding in cupcake form. The recipe I used for the frosting is as follows: 1-8 ounce package of softened cream cheese 1 stick of real butter 2 tsp. real vanilla extract plus seeds from 1 vanilla bean pod 2 cups of sifted powdered sugar. Beat all ingredients together then fold in 1 container of cool whip. Pipe on cupcakes and enjoy! Read More
