Elvis Cupcakes

Elvis lives in a cupcake! Our Test Kitchen took the King of Rock's favorite flavors and rolled them into a banana cupcake frosted with peanut butter and kissed by chocolate.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    1-1/2 dozen


  • 1-1/3 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 medium)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 18 milk chocolate kisses
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons milk
  • Milk chocolate chips, optional


  • In a small bowl, combine the bananas, mayonnaise and vanilla until well blended. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into banana mixture until blended.
  • Spoon 1 tablespoon of batter into each paper-lined muffin cup. Top each with a chocolate kiss, pointed side down. Fill cups two-thirds full with remaining batter.
  • Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough milk to achieve spreading consistency. Frost cupcakes. Garnish with chocolate chips if desired.

    My batch was gone before I had a chance to frost them. Huge hit with my family, even husband who does not eat bananas.

    What caught my eye was the mayo, no eggs, and the name! My issue is the frosting which slides off after a day and drenches the cupcake liners and plate with excess moisture. Perhaps it's my error. I might try them again with a cream cheese frosting.

    Made these for a party once and have gotten multiple requests for them since - everyone loves them! (Even my husband, who doesn't usually like banana.) I usually use a little extra PB in the frosting - comes out more like a glaze.

    I had to make these just because of the name. They are yummy! Instead of a chocolate kiss in the middle, I subbed a miniature peanut butter cup. Fun and tasty!
