Why not?? I used my grandmother's top secret (sorry Aunt Krissy) banana bread recipe and poured it into cups. Easy. But my favorite part of the cupcake is the frosting. So I looked in the cupboard...basic buttercream...too expected and too sweet. Peanut butter? Maybe. But as I pushed away the Skippy, staring back at me (insert a beam of light and the angel "ahhh" noise here), was the Nutella.
Half a package of cream cheese, 1/4 cup of the silky chocolaty heaven that is Nutella, a couple cups of powdered sugar, splash of cream and ta-dah! Cupcakes for breakfast! Mission accomplished.
Sorry but you won't find the recipe for the banana bread here, posted for the world to see. But, if you are really nice to me and buy me a nice Christmas present, maybe, just maybe I will send it to you. Please be prepared to sign a 9 page secrecy contract.
On a side note, I ordered a few things from this adorable website, Bake It Pretty. When I opened the box at work today, I was so suprised. Now, a disclaimer, I am a complete sucker for packaging. Look at how they shipped it! So simple and so cute!
For the sake of my waistline, and Jeff's, I am trying to stay out of the kitchen this week. But, I am donating cupcakes to the OLQM bazaar on 11/13, so expect lots of yummy stuff in a of couple weeks!
