Talking Banana Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.

Banana Cupcakes
Makes 12 x Large cupcakes

Ingredients:
200g (7 oz) plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large bananas, mashed (MUST be very ripe, preferably black)
150g sugar
1 large egg
75g butter, melted

Topping:
100g softened butter
250g cream cheese
350g Icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Bottle of toffee/caramel sauce
Small bar of dark chocolate
Banana chips (if desired)

Method:
Preheat oven to 180C.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt; set aside.

Combine mashed bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter in a large bowl. Fold in flour mixture, and mix until smooth.

Spoon into the cake cases or silicone muffin tray.

Bake for approx 25-30 minutes.

Leave until completely cooled (if you can wait that long!)

To make the topping:

Using an electric whisk beat the butter and cream cheese together until very smooth before beginning to add the icing sugar a third at a time. When combined, add the vanilla, beat well and it's ready to use either in a piping bag or to spoon onto the cupcakes.

I then add a drizzle of toffee/caramel sauce (shop bought) and grate dark chocolate liberally over the top before serving. If you are giving them as a gift I would add a dried banana chip, nestled in the frosting so they know what lays ahead

Re: Banana Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.

I couldn't make anything like that. It would be a disaster! I haven't baked since I was at school! You ought to upload some photos of it, Lynsey

Re: Banana Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.

Flip, I love Christmas cake.
Matter of fact I seldom refuse anything lovely sweet and home baked.
Lyndsey you make me feel totally inadequate lol, I never bake.
Your baking sounds and better still looks divine.
