Yield: 12 x cupcakes
CUPCAKES: Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Beat peanut butter, oil, 3/4 cup sugar substitute, and the vanilla with an electric beater until smooth and creamy. Gradually add eggs, beating well with each addition. Beat in banana.
Lightly fold 1/2 cup flour through the peanut mixture. Stir in the buttermilk, followed by the remaining 1/2 cup flour.
Spoon into 12 cupcake cases and bake in preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes in pan, then turn onto a wire rack.
FROSTING: Beat together fat-free cream cheese, 3 tablespoons sugar substitute and lemon zest until light and fluffy.
Cut a small circle from the top of the cakes and cut these circles in half. Fill the top of the cake with a spoonful of the frosting and place the two cut halves on top.
* Can replace sugar for sugar substitute.
If desired, sprinkle cupcakes with icing sugar.
