My take on Chocolate Covered Banana Cupcakes


My family loves chocolate, and banana’s and so of course love chocolate covered banana’s!
Meet my version the Chocolate Covered Banana Cupcake

chocolate banana cupcake

What you need:

  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder(I used 1/2 black onyx which is a darker cocoa, and 1/2 regular sweetened cocoa powder for a stronger flavor but you could probably use all regular unsweetened cocoa powder as well)
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt(you can also use table salt)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • large egg


  • 1/2 cup banana’s mashed
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 3 cups confectioner sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla


To make cupcakes, mix all dry ingredients until well blended, then add the milk, vegetable oil, vanilla, egg, and boiling water, Beat about 1-2 minutes on medium

Put into well greased cupcake pans or cupcake liners
Bake at 325 12-14 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean

To make the filling and icing mix together all ingredients and blend well

When Cupcakes are finished baking and cooled you can either fill them using a cupcake fill tip or you can cut a little chunk out of the center of each cupcake and fill with icing
Then top with the icing using a spatula(The icing will not be really thick that is ok)

As an added bonus I used hershey’s syrup to swirl the top of each cupcake and then added chunks of banana
(this is optional and if you choose to do it should be done right before serving)

Hope you enjoy, if you make them please let me know what you think, I love comments 🙂
