National Cupcake Week: Elvis Cupcakes

9 comments
Here we are again, day two of National Cupcake Week.  Today I'll be introducing you to Pet Lambs best seller and most requested cupcake, The Elvis!  The Elvis is a delicious combination of a chocolate chip & banana sponge topped off with a creamy peanut butter butter cream.  I mean, who could possibly resist!


I based this recipe on the banana and chocolate cupcake from The Primrose Bakery Cupcake Book.

Original Recipe:


125g unsalted butter
250g caster sugar
2 large eggs (free range)
1tsp vanilla
250g plain flour
2tsp baking powder
4 over ripe bananas mashed with a fork
175g plain chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 160C (fan) and line a 12 hole muffin tin with cupcake cases.


In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar until light and smooth, about 5 minutes.  Add the eggs and vanilla extract and briefly beat again.  Add the flour and baking powder and beat until well combined.  Stir in the mashed banana and chocolate chips with a wooden spoon..


Carefully spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases, filling them to about two thirds full.  Bake in the preheated oven for 20 - 25 minutes.


Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes.  Transfer the cakes to a wire rack to cool completely.

  5. Ugh, this flavour combination is possibly too amazing. If need be they could be Elvissed up a little bit more with some deep-frying... :P
