Roasted Banana Filled Banana Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache are a lower calorie and low fat delicious dessert. Make them for a healthy birthday or celebration.
I have to admit this is a very self-indulgent recipe post for me. Tomorrow is my birthday and this is what I want for my birthday cake, Banana Cupcakes filled with Roasted Banana Pudding and Chocolate Ganache. It makes me giddy to think about these little gems. This all came about because of my favorite cake from Toojay’s Deli. It is their Banana Dream Cake. It is a moist banana cake with a banana pudding filling, chocolate ganache and chocolate frosting. Just thinking about this cake makes my taste buds tingle. Sadly, there are no locations near us. So for years, I have thought about making this cake. I promised myself I would make a lightened version for my birthday. Yes, I like to make my own birthday cake! This time I decided to make cupcakes. If I make a cake, I will eat the whole cake. If I make cupcakes, I can freeze them. That works for me.
I am in love, in love with these cupcakes. I love the little surprise of supreme banana flavor when you bit into the cupcake and get some of the moist, delicious banana cake and the creamy banana pudding filling. We cannot forget the draping of chocolate ganache and the nuttiness of walnuts. What a perfect combination. It is the best way to celebrate a birthday, other than celebrating with your loved ones, of course! Birthdays got so much better when I could hear my little one singing Happy Birthday to me.
Having a little one really does make birthday’s special all over again. She wanted to go for a walk with Daddy the other day so they could make a plan for my Birthday. She will run into our room in the morning and snuggle up to me for her daily back rub and say Happy Birthday. She will, of course, open all cards and presents. She is quite the expert. My parents will come over and we will have dinner and cake. It’s the perfect way to spend a birthday.
