Making Banana Pudding Cupcakes
You will also find a printable version of the recipe at the bottom of the post for your convenience.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 muffin tins with cupcake liners. Place 1 vanilla wafer flat-side down in the bottom of each cupcake liner. Then, prepare cupcakes according to package instructions.
Next, combine banana pudding mix, milk, and sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl. Whisk until thickened, about 5 minutes. Fold in chopped bananas.
Using a paring knife, cut small holes out of the top of cooled cupcakes. Fill holes with banana pudding mixture.
Now comes my favorite part of the recipe: topping the cupcakes with vanilla frosting using new Pillsbury Filled Pastry Bags.
Filled with 16 oz. of Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Frosting, the same amount that comes in a traditional tub, Pillsbury Pastry Bags makes icing treats fun and easy.
Simply push the frosting down toward the tip and twist the top of the bag. Then, remove the plastic cover from the star tip. Now you are ready to begin the fun part! Frost your cupcakes by squeezing from the top of the pastry bag.
Finally, garnish each cupcake with a vanilla wafer and vanilla wafer crumbles.
