Servings 12


  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter melted
  • 1 1/2 cups of mashed bananas about 4 bananas
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon Frosting
  • 1 1/4 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon of ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and place liners in a muffin pan.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt until well combined.
  • Add the butter, mashed bananas, eggs and vanilla and mix well.
  • Pour batter evenly into liners in muffin tin (they will be filled almost to the top) and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of one comes out clean.
  • While cupcakes are baking, prepare the frosting. In a medium bowl, mix the powdered sugar, butter, honey and ground cinnamon until smooth. I would stir with a spoon first and then use an electric mixer to get the right consistency.
  • Once cupcakes are done, cool completely and spread or pipe frosting on top.
