My partner in crime, Corinne, and I tested out this cupcake for our weekly "Test Kitchen" day. (We're trying out new recipes each week until she leaves for Argentina in March. It's sort of a resolution of ours.) This cupcake isn't just any old cupcake. It's a cupcake fit for a king. Actually, it's a cupcake fit for the King. Elvis Presley, that is.
Elvis was known for eating fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Some people say he ate them with bacon, some people say he put honey on them, and some people just say he stuck with the pb & banana. Well, the idea of bacon on a cupcake kind of grosses us out, so we went with the pb, banana, and honey combo.
The cake is a moist banana cake (same recipe I made last week, but without the nuts). We used a star tip (star tip, get it??) to pipe on some yummy peanut butter icing that has a great peanut butter taste and a little bit of a lighter, whipped consistency. And we finished them off with a drizzling of honey. Good idea? "Thank ya, thank ya very much!"
