Ingredients

  • 1 1/8 cups all-purpose flour*
  • 7 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar

Banana Pudding

Whipping Cream

*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 345°F. Place 14 cupcake liners in muffin tins and set aside.
  2. Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and sugar. Set aside.
  3. In a bowl large enough to hold all ingredients whisk egg and buttermilk until well combined. Add oil, vanilla, and salt. Whisk smooth.
  4. Meanwhile heat coffee or water until hot in a microwave oven.
  5. Add dry ingredients to buttermilk/egg mixture and whisk smooth. Add hot liquid in 3 increments, while whisking batter smooth, between additions.
  6. Fill 3/4 full and place in oven, bake for 20-22 minutes until center of cupcakes bounce back when lightly pressed with a finger or until an inserted toothpick comes clean. Set aside.
  7. For banana pudding combine milk and sugar in a saucepan and whisk well to combine.
  8. Add eggs and whisk vigorously until completely blended. Add cornstarch and whisk continuously until mixture boils and makes thick bubbles. Remove from heat.
  9. Add vanilla and liquor and cover with plastic food wrap. Place in fridge until completely cold.
  10. In center of each cupcake hollow out about 1 1/2 tablespoons of cake.
  11. Peel and cut bananas lengthwise in half and each half, in half again. Cut crosswise to obtain slices. Mix bananas in cold cream.
  12. Spoon a generous amount of pudding in each cupcake. Pudding should rise well above surface of cupcakes but needs to remain in center and not spill to sides.
