Banana Split Cupcakes

This weekend I made my favorite banana split cupcakes for Annecia’s graduation party.  It’s a recipe I created a couple years ago but don’t make often because it makes A LOT of cupcakes!  If made the right size it should make nearly 70 cupcakes.  Perfect for a party but not great for a regular treat.  The reason it makes so many is because I use 3 boxes of cake mix.  Besides from tasting great, this recipe is also really easy and not very expensive.

Banana Split Cupcakes
Servings (60-70 cupcakes)

    • 1 box chocolate cake
    • 1 box strawberry cake
    • 1 box banana cake
    • 1 cup canola oil
    • 9 eggs
    • 3 cups water
    • 2 14 oz whipped vanilla frosting
    • 2 jars Maraschino cherries
    • Nut topping
    • Sprinkles
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare each cake mix and keep in a separate bowl.
  3. Scoop a generous 1/2 tablespoon of each flavor in cupcake holder.  I suggest chocolate, strawberry and banana on top.
  4. Bake for 15-17 minutes.  I made 24 cupcakes at a time for 3 rounds in the oven.
  5. Let cupcakes cool.  Top with frosting, nuts, sprinkles and a cherry.  I like to chill cupcakes so that the topping keeps its shape (hence the frost marks on the cherries).
