1/2 cup buttermilk or 1/2 cup milk + 1tbspn lemon juice
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350*

In another bowl sift the dry ingredients and then add slowly into bowl with wet ingredients.
Layer the cupcake tins with liners and fill 3/4 full. 
Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Makes about 18.
Once cooled use a cupcake corer and remove the middle of each cupcake leaving a hole in the center to fill with buttercream.

Tip: Use an ice cream scoop to make sure each cupcake has the same amount of batter. 

Icing Ingredients 

1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
2 cups + 1/2 cup icing sugar
3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons banana extract(found in most grocery stores with the vanilla extract)
Mix first two ingredients in bowl and slowly add 1 cup of icing sugar until it’s creamy and smooth. 
Add another cup of icing sugar followed by another tablespoon of the heavy whipping cream. 
Alternate until the 2 cups of icing sugar and whipped cream is used. 
Fill piping bag with 1/2 cup of vanilla buttercream and pipe icing into cupcakes. 
Now add banana extract to remaining icing with a few drops of yellow food coloring and mix. 
Place into piping bag and pipe your icing on top of the cupcakes. 
Set aside.

Chocolate Coating Ingredients

2 cups milk chocolate melties
In a saucepan on low heat melt the chocolate melties; stirring constantly. 
Once almost all of them have melted remove from heat and continue to stir for 3 minutes. 
Transfer your melted chocolate into a deep bowl. 
Dip the icing portion of your cupcake into the milk chocolate. 
Shake lightly a few times to get the extra chocolate off of the top before you move it to a baking sheet to harden. 
Cover with sprinkles right away so they have time to stick before the chocolate crisps up! 
Enjoy!
