Banana split is a classic dessert. You will find a banana split in almost any restaurant's menu. That's how popular this dessert is! This is why this recipe will show you how to turn a classic dessert into the most delicious cupcakes ever.
Start with a simple banana cake as the base. These cupcakes are delicious, moist, and really sweet. The key to a sweet banana cupcake is the ripe bananas. It's important to use ripe bananas than fresh ones because the ripe bananas have locked in all the sweetness of the fruit and that's what you want. You know a banana is really ripe when the peel is starting to turn brown. If you have a ripe banana, but not ready to bake yet, you can store them in the freezer and use them later when you're ready.
These banana cupcakes are filled with a sweet whipped cream frosting. Since a real banana split has three kinds of ice cream, you'll need to make three flavors of frosting as well. So, you'll have vanilla frosting, strawberry frosting, and chocolate frosting. Finally, garnish with maraschino cherries and walnuts!
If you like the vibe of a real banana split, you can top these cupcakes with real ice cream! Top each cupcake with different ice cream flavors and garnish with maraschino cherries and walnuts. Remember to scoop the ice cream when ready to serve!
