looking for an awesome banana frosting for cupcakes

Does anyone have great banana frosting or banana buttercream recipe that they would be willing to share? TIA

I am planning on making a banana frosting this weekend and I just planned to add Lorann Banana Cream Flavoring or maybe banana pudding mix to my Buttercream...I was going to mess around with it tomorrow. If that doesn't work out, I go to Google. LOL

"You! Cake or death?" "Uh, cake for me, too, please." "Very well! Give him cake, too! We're gonna run out of cake at this rate."

I just add dry banana cream pudding mix to my regular buttercream recipe. Sorry I don't have measurements I just do it to taste.

Awesome! Thank you to both of you! I wonder if banana extract would work also.

Make Brennan's Bananas Foster from the original recipe and add it to one of the European buttercreams.

Ooooo! Thanks scp! I assume we mash the bananas up with everything after making the recipe, then add it in?

My Husband mashed up some bananas and a little bit of cinnamon and add it right to the buttercream icing. It tasted awesome.

We use banana extract...it makes it easier to keep inventory, since when you need banana (or raspberry, cherry, coconut, etc.) frosting you can just add the extract to your vanilla buttercream.

Thanks, I might test that out first. I'm just worried that the frosting would look funny with mashed bananas since they turn brown.

Yes, you can mash the bananas and incorporate the sauce. To top it, drizzle the sauce. This is one of my best cupcakes. It is also good with cream cheese as the base, but you can't add as much because the frosting is already not as stiff. The net is full of the original recipe. There is no need to try a variation... Brennan's is the best. If you don't want to buy the banana liqueur, you can add an extract, but a premium extract is almost as much as the liqueur. The liqueur will keep longer than the extract.

Thanks SCP, just looked up the Brennan's Bananas Foster recipe and, the thought of adding it to FBC is making my mouth water. Who needs to frost anything, just eating it with a spoon would make me happy!!! LMFAO

The Bananas Foster sauce is already brown. I actually make a banana cupcake, make the sauce, take out the bananas, and just use the sauce. The banana taste is strong in the leftover sauce. After the bananas are discarded, the sauce can be frozen.

I use fresh bananas in my buttercream - smoosh them & add a bit of lemon juice, it's fine & tastes divine and not fake tasting.
