Banana Cupcakes with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting (URS: Pantry Staples)

Posted By Jessica Fisher On January 9, 2013 @ 8:00 pm In Desserts,Pantry Challenge,Recipes,Uncategorized,URS | 7 Comments

This month we’re eating down the pantry [4]. What this means is that we are focusing on the ingredients we have in order to prepare meals and buying only what we need to supplement our stores.

I say “we” because the boys are responsible to cook one meal every night. Whoohoo!

Obviously, the success of a pantry challenge [5] rests on what you normally keep in the pantry and what you’ve been stockpiling. Not all cupboards are created equal.

But, most of us have simple baking ingredients, a block of cream cheese, and some bananas that are about to go bad, right? We almost always have bananas ready to go off or stored in the freezer. These Banana Cupcakes with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting are super-duper yummy. Love them!

They taste best chilled, so store them in the refrigerator before serving. If you’re on a Pantry Challenge, you should have room.

URS Guidelines

Remember: Each month at Ultimate Recipe Swap, there is a posted theme. You are welcome to share any recipe that fits the theme and contains a link back to Life as MOM. If you’re curious about the upcoming themes, I have a calendar here. [6] This week’s theme is Pantry Staple Recipes.

If you have a recipe that fits the theme, please link it. However, things like Beef Strogonoff will be deleted from Chicken week because it doesn’t contain chicken. Please keep this meme as helpful to others as we can.

And don’t make me the bad guy! ;)
