I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I spent most of my weekend relaxing with family, eating inappropriate amounts of food and answering A LOT of questions about why I'm not dating anyone. It was super fun.
I was like guys...I'm FULLY aware I'm the only one in the family who is single. You don't need to rub it in. And after my 34 minute date last week, I think I deserve to take a little break from the dating world.
For now, I will stick to what I am good at...baking. This week I went for Banana Caramel Cupcakes. This banana cake base is a family favorite. I even used it for my cousins wedding cake a few months ago. You know if someone picks it for their wedding
The cupcakes themselves are not overly sweet, so the Caramel Buttercream is the perfect compliment. Personally, I like to save a little caramel on the side so I can drizzle a little extra on top. Then the banana chip adds the perfect little crunch!

Do you recommend salted or unsalted butter for the cupcakes?
I would suggest going with unsalted butter
What is 2/3 of a teaspoon? Thanks
There is usually a 1/3 teaspoon measurement on your teaspoon measuring spoons (and you would do two of those). But if there is not, 2/3 means a little over half full, o a little less than a full teaspoon.
These look delicious! Who doesn't love banana cake? Who doesn't love caramel? Thanks for sharing your recipe.
You are so welcome! This is definitely a recipe worth trying!
