I cannot believe it has already been a whole week. Seems like yesterday I was writing the Philly Cheese Steak post!
I hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing weekend.
Well here it is... today and every Monday I am featuring a
Must Try Recipe from my
board and will let you know what I think and things I did differently!
So let's get started...Today I am featuring
Banana Split Cupcakes from Six Sister's Stuff!
If you have not checked out these sister's blog hop on over there and check out their recipe index, YUM!
The reason I made these cuties is because my sister from
moved away this week and this dessert was her final request from my kitchen :( I am going to truly miss her, she is my very best friend who lived right down the street from me and now she will live across the country from us! There will be lots of skyping! Ok, back on track...
This is mine
and this is the picture I pinned!

My thoughts and things I did differently!
These cupcakes were a big hit and
I will definitely be making these again!!!!!!
The banana cake was to die for! The things I did differently to the batter was reduced the sugar to 2 cups, used regular milk in place of buttermilk, and used about 3 bananas.
The batter was perfect!
I did not use the Vanilla Frosting but instead used a
Homemade Whipped Topping
2 cups of heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup of powder sugar (add more or less to your liking)
1 tsp of vanilla extract
Chill your mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer for about 10 minutes. Then in a large metal bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form.
Then beat in vanilla and sugar until peaks form.
Then after making the whipped topping I was out of heavy whipping cream for the ganache, so I substituted the heavy cream with 3/4 cup of half and half and it worked!
Although, I would suggest to half the ganache recipe because it made a lot, unless you have other intentions for the leftovers or you enjoy more ganache than I do on your cupcakes!
Hope you enjoyed this review and I would highly recommend these cupcakes for any occasion!
P.S. My 15 year old daughter said these cupcakes were so good she wants these at her 16th birthday party!
