Banoffee Cupcakes

Banoffee Pie is one of my favourite desserts so I just had to turn it into cupcakes! These delicious gooey bites include a moist banana sponge, a hidden rich caramel centre, whipped cream piped on top and decorated with a fresh banana slice and chocolate. They are yummy bites of banoffee goodness!
 
 
To make the sponge I started by creaming together 100g butter, 60g caster sugar, 40g light brown sugar and  1 heaped tbsp Lotus Biscoff Spread.
 
 
I then added 2 eggs and 2 mashed up bananas and mixed well.
 
 
Finally I folded in 125g self raising flour and 1 tsp baking powder, and then seperated the batter into cupcake cases in a muffin tin.
 
 

I baked them on 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 for about 20 minutes, then left them to cool fully.

Once they were cool I cut holes in the middle of the cupcakes using a cupcake corer and filled them with Carnation caramel.

I whipped up 300ml along with 2 tbsp icing sugar and piped it onto the cupcakes.

I bashed up half of a flake and sprinkled it all over the whipped cream.

 

To finish the decoration I sliced up a large banana, brushed the slices with lemon juice and pressed them into the cream.

Serve the banoffee cupcakes immediately, if there are any left refridgerate overnight and eat within 24 hours to make sure the cream stays fresh – but I can assure you that won’t be a problem!

Pin for later!

  1. These look really good and I really like the look of the Richmond Tea Rooms too…wish I lived a bit closer! I'd quite like to try one of your banoffee cupcakes…the hidden caramel in the middle is an added bonus 🙂

    1. Thanks Laura! They were so yummy 🙂 I barely got a look in with my hungry colleagues around! If you ever visit Manchester, Richmond Tea Rooms is a must!

  2. I don't really eat bananas, so I never consider banoffee bakes, but I should because it's an amazing flavour combination, and these look divine! Really like the addition of the Speculoos too, I still have a jar in the cupboard I haven't done anything with…
