Elvis Cupcakes - Guest Post from Recipes Re-Mixed

I would like to introduce you to my friend Linda from "Recipes Re-Mixed".  

Linda and I have been good friends for about 4 years now.  We met on our favorite recipe site ever;  Just a Pinch   and have been foodie loving friends ever since.  Linda is originally from New York, and her NY accent is still as pronounced as the day she left I tell you.  Linda also has a wicked sense of humor, which is right up my alley, and...
Laughter is what makes true friends! ♥

Linda's recipe are her spin on lowering the fat content and keeping the recipes healthy, but still tasty!  Linda's blog can be found;  Recipes Re-Mixed

Linda is an amazing cook, having participated two years in a row in the World Food Championship in Las Vegas.  
I love Linda's diverse taste, cultural embrace and kind spirit!  I was thrilled when I asked Linda to be a guest poster and she accepted.  Linda was kind enough to share her absolutely mouth watering "Elvis Cupcakes" with us.  

This is what Linda shares with us, and she links for the full recipe.  But most of all, her humor shines thru!!

My friends were All Shook Up when I announced I was working on a recipe for Mini Elvis Cupcakes. I told them, "Don't Be Cruel, I Can't Help Falling in Love with all sorts of combinations, especially when it comes to baking. You guys all have Suspicious Minds."
By now you've guessed, I'm an Elvis fan. And this is my sweet tribute to three of his favorite foods: bacon, bananas and peanut butter. This recipe placed 1st in the blogger dessert category for The World Food Championships on-line recipe contest in 2013 which was definitely a Love Me Tender moment for me. Those who enjoy this combo will adore this recipe. Those who don't, well you're just Hound Dogs. Here's the recipe for these little darlings. Just watch the Fools Rush In and gobble up a cupcake or two. They'll be gone before you know it! They're really decadent, just like Elvis!
