Banana Creme Pie Cupcakes

Pin It

I had a coupon for the new Betty Crocker Fun da Middles cupcake mix, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity for me to try a new cupcake flavor.  Have you seen this mix in your grocery store? 

At $2.50 a box for 12 cupcakes, I think it's a little pricey for a box mix, but I had the coupon so I decided to give it a try.  The cupcakes themselves were tasty, but I wasn't crazy about the filling.
Next time I make this flavor I will buy a regular box of yellow cake mix and make the filling myself.


Banana Cream Pie Cupcakes

Cupcakes:
Betty Crocker Fun da-Middles yellow cupcake mix
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/2 box (3.4 oz) banana cream instant pudding and pie filling
12 vanilla wafer cookies

Frosting:
1 cup butter, softened
4 cups confectioners sugar
1/2 box (3.4 oz) banana cream instant pudding and pie filling
3 T whipping cream ( I used whole milk)
1 T vanilla
2 tsp. banana extract

Garnish:
1/4 gramham cracker crumbs (I used the vanilla wafers)
12 vanilla wafer cookies (I used the minis)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place 1 vanilla wafer cookie in bottom of each cupcake liner.
Make cupcake batter as directed on cupcake mix box, adding 1/2 box of pudding mix. (Other half will be used in frosting)
Fill cups as directed on the box.  Bake and cool cupcakes.

In a medium bowl, beat frosting ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
Frost cooled cupcakes.
Sprinkle tops with graham cracker crumbs; top each with one cookie.
Makes 12 cupcakes.

  1. I'm glad you shared that recipe. I surely going to try this one at home for my kids. But I should limit them from eating too much sweets because my dentist in Huntersville nc told me that they could get cavities and toothaches with this.
