I was looking for a dessert to bake and take and was in the mood for something Banana. The first thing that came to mind is good ole Banana bread. Delicious but uninspiring. Then I thought of Banana cupcakes. Yes, Banana Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. I started searching the internet and found a recipe. Made it and the cupcakes didn’t come out so well. They were flat and look like some of the bananas exploded. So I searched again and found this great recipe. Finally, a winner! This great recipe from Spend with Pennies was a winner! I like cupcakes that are light and fluffy. Almost like a cake mix. If I wanted a dense muffin I would make muffins. No, a light banana cupcake with creamy cream cheese frosting was exactly what I was craving.
This recipe is delicious. I didn’t add walnuts to the batter, but I can imagine you could easily.
You can make your own buttermilk as the recipe suggests but I like to make from purchased buttermilk if at all possible. It’s always nice though to have the option of making your own if you don’t want to run to the store.
In this recipe you beat the egg whites to stiff peaks and add into the mixture at the end.
The results are a perfectly light banana cupcake topped with delicious cream cheese frosting.
I started this blog to keep a record of my recipes for my relatives and friends. My passion for cooking and all things cooking turned into a business for me. The good thing is working at something you love. The bad thing, it doesn't leave me much time to do the things I love. I try to use new recipes as much as possible as I love to see what's out there. I also love gardening and photography.
