Ingredients

Banana Filling:

  • 2 cups milk

  • 1 (3.5 ounce) package instant banana pudding mix

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Vanilla Frosting:

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 (3.5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ cup confectioners' sugar

  • 1 (8 ounce) container whipped topping

Cupcakes:

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup light brown sugar

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas

  • cup plain yogurt

Directions

  1. Combine milk, banana pudding mix, and vanilla extract in a bowl and mix until smooth. Refrigerate banana filling at least 30 minutes before using.

  2. Combine milk, vanilla pudding mix, and vanilla extract in a bowl. Whisk in confectioners' sugar. Fold in whipped topping until no streaks remain. Refrigerate frosting for at least 30 minutes before using.

  3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  4. While filling and frosting are chilling, prepare the cupcake batter. Whisk flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl and set aside.

  5. Cream white sugar, brown sugar, and butter together in the bowl of a stand mixer until light and creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla extract. Alternate adding flour mixture, mashed bananas, and yogurt. Mix on low speed until just moistened; batter may be lumpy, but do not overmix. Fill 24 muffin cups 3/4 full with batter.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 17 to 20 minutes. Place on a rack to cool completely, at least 30 minutes.

  7. Use a paring knife to cut a small circle out of the top of each cooled cupcake. Fill with banana filling. Top each cupcake with vanilla frosting.

Cook's Note:

Feel free to use sour cream in place of the yogurt. You can substitute real whipped cream for the whipped topping, if you prefer.
