Cook time:

Serves:
Makes approx 12

Ingredients

50g butter, at room temperature
100g smooth peanut butter
150g light soft brown sugar
2 eggs
150g plain flour, sifted
1 tablespoon baking powder
120ml soured cream
2 medium ripe bananas, mashed

For the frosting:

75g cream cheese
75g smooth peanut butter
300g icing sugar, sifted
25g dry roasted peanuts, finely chopped

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 160ºC/325ºF/Gas Mark 3. Line a 12 hole muffin tin with paper cases.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugar for 3–5 minutes until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, whisking between each addition.
3. Fold in the flour and baking powder until you have a thick batter. Stir in the soured cream, then gently fold in the bananas. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases until two thirds full. Bake for 20–25 minutes until risen and the sponge bounces back when touched. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack.
4. For the frosting, place the cream cheese and peanut butter in a large mixing bowl and using an electric hand whisk, whisk until light and fluffy. Slowly add the icing sugar one tablespoon at a time, whisking between each addition.
5. If the icing is stiff to begin with, but don’t be tempted to loosen it with any liquid, just continue whisking and it will soften up. Spoon the frosting into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle.
6. Pipe swirls of frosting over the cupcakes and sprinkle with chopped peanuts to decorate.
