I baked them on 160C Fan/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 some double cream with a little 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 refrigerate overnight and eat within 24 hours to make sure the cream stays fresh – but I can assure you that won’t be a problem!
