An easy banana pudding cupcake recipe that’s full of bananas and French vanilla flavors! Quick, easy, simple and delicious!


1 box vanilla cake mix

1 box instant vanilla pudding mix

1 1/2 c. cold milk

1 c. sweetened condensed milk

1/2 c. chopped bananas

2 c. heavy cream

1/4 c. powdered sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla

sliced bananas, for garnish

Nilla wafers, for garnish


Preheat oven to 350° and line a cupcake with cupcake lines. Bake cake mix according to cupcake package instructions. Let cool completely.

Make pudding: In a large bowl, combine vanilla pudding, milk, and sweetened condensed milk. Whisk until thickened, about 5 minutes. Fold in chopped bananas.

Make the whipped cream: In a large bowl, combine heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla and beat with a hand mixer on high until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. (Alternatively, you can beat the cream in the bowl of a stand mixer with a whisk attachment.)

Using a paring knife, cut small wells out of cooled cupcakes. Fill with banana pudding, then top with whipped cream. Garnish each cupcake with a banana slice, a Nilla wafer, and Nilla wafer crumbles.
