For the cupcakes
For the date caramel filling
For the frosting
Sieve the flour and baking powder into a bowl and mix well. In another bowl mash the bananas and then add the rest of the ingredients combining well. add the wet ingredients to the dry making sure to combine thoroughly.
Fill 18 medium cupcake cases with the batter and bake in a preheated oven for 25 minutes at 180•C.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool thoroughly.
Place the dates in a bowl and add just enough warm water to cover. With a stick blender, blend the dates till you achieve a fairly thick paste. Add a little extra water if the dates don’t blend thoroughly.
Using a small scoop or cupcake plunger remove a section from the top of the cupcakes and pipe some of the date caramel into the space.
With an electric whisk whip the whipping cream and xylitol till you achieve stiff peaks and then fold in the greek yoghurt. Using a fluted piping nozzle in a piping bag, pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes covering the date caramel centres.
For an extra flourish, you could decorate with grated dark chocolate and a drizzle of any leftover date caramel. Enjoy.
