  • 100g self raising flour
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 2 free range eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 very ripe banana mashed


  • 150g unsalted butter
  • 60g peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
  • 250g icing sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp milk


  1. Preheat oven to 180/160 fan. Line a cupcake tin with 12 cases. Then place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Beat until everything is mixed together.

  2. Divide cake mixture between cases and cook in the oven for 18-20, or until a toothpick come out clean.

  3. Whilst cupcakes are cooking put the butter in the mixer and mix until very pale for a few minutes. Add the peanut butter and half of the icing sugar and mix again. Then add the rest of the icing sugar. If looking a little thick add a tbsp of milk.

  4. Once cakes have cooled ice them with the buttercream and eat!
