Then, it was like someone turned on a lightbulb! The bells and whistles started going off in my head. What if I made a cupcake that was Banana Pudding themed?! You know… the yummy gooey stuff made with Nilla wafers, Vanilla Pudding, and Bananas! Of course you do!
So, I was on a mission to create the best Banana Pudding cupcake ever! I think I did!
Banana Pudding Cupcakes
- 1 batch of Nilla Wafer Cake Batter (recipe here)
- 2 small boxes Jello instant vanilla pudding mix
- 3 cups of milk
- Vanilla Frosting for the top ( I made my own butter cream)
- Banana Chips and extra Nilla Wafers for the top
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare a cupcake pan, by lining it with cupcake liners.
Mix up a batch of Nilla Wafer Cake Batter, and fill cupcake pan 3/4 of the way full.
While cupcakes are cooling mix together the filling. Wisk together the Jello pudding mix and milk and refrigerate until set. It will take about 15-20 minutes.
Once cupcakes are cool, take an apple corer, or melon baller, and take a small piece of cake out of the top. Since, these are such dense cupcakes, this is the best way to get the filling inside. Trust me
Spoon or pipe the pudding inside the cupcakes.
Then decorate the top with the vanilla frosting. Top with a banana chip and a Nilla wafer!
Makes 18 cupcakes. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
