Looking for something sweet, easy and so delicious for the weekend? Here’s an idea! These banana chocolate cupcakes are so easy to make and have the most delicious addition of coffee whipped cream. They make the perfect combination of flavors, and banana and chocolate lovers will LOVE them
The cupcakes are super easy to make (you make them in one bowl, no separating eggs needed) and the coffee whipped cream is a breeze. This is definitely one of the easiest desserts you can make, but will make everyone say WOW.
I like to make the cupcakes without the coffee whipped cream topping, keep them in the freezer for up to a month and whenever I have guests – simply thaw them outside. After that – making the cream is quick and I get a wonderful effortless dessert.
