banana cupcakes with honey cinnamon frosting.

Jun 7, 2010

i had a few over ripe bananas waiting to be used and everyone knows that i am always in the mood for baking. i usually make my mom’s delicious banana bread but this time i wanted to try something new. of course i turned to my domestic hero, martha. i used her recipe for banana cupcakes and followed it, except i added 1/4 cup pecan chips per adrian’s request. then i topped them with a dollop of her honey cinnamon frosting. they are light, flavorful and would be perfect for breakfast! who says you can’t have cupcakes for breakfast, right?! here’s the recipe:

banana cupcakes (makes 12-14 regular size cupcakes)

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a standard 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners.

Stir to incorporate flour mixture (do not overmix). Stir in pecan chips until just incorporated. Dividing evenly, spoon batter into muffin cups. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of a cupcake comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pan; cool completely on a wire rack.
