Banana, coffee and caramel cupcakes

Tired of the same old flavoured cupcakes? How about trying this banana, coffee and caramel version?

These cupcakes are perfectly moist and amazingly tasty. Just what’s needed to get through the afternoon slump and the perfect way to use that overripe banana languishing in the fruit bowl!

Serves:  12

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

What You Need

For the cupcakes

70g salted butter, at room temperature

220g self-raising flour

200g caster sugar

200ml Arctic Iced Coffee Caramel Latte

2 large eggs

1 banana, mashed

For the icing

400g icing sugar

100g salted butter, softened

50ml Arctic Iced Coffee Caramel Latte

Caramel sauce and dried banana chips to decorate

What You Do

Pre heat the oven to 180C/160C fan and line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cake cases.

Beat together the butter, flour and sugar in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl whisk the Arctic Iced Coffee Caramel Latte and eggs. Gradually add this liquid to the cake mixture until it’s all incorporated and smooth. Stir in the mashed banana.

Spoon the batter into the cake cases and bake for 25 minutes.

When ready remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.

To make the icing, whisk together the butter and icing sugar. Slowly add 50ml of Arctic Iced Coffee Caramel Latte until you have a smooth, spreadable icing.

When the cakes are cold, pipe or spoon the icing on top, drizzle with caramel sauce (optional) and decorate with banana chips.
