I have used this banana cake recipe from Allrecipes several times, especially when I have buttermilk hanging around in the fridge. This time I decided to make cupcakes and frost with my friend, Em’s, Magnificent Cream Cheese Icing.

I decided to make these in different varieties, so some had walnuts, some had chocolate chips, and others were just plain. I also put the chocolate chips or walnuts on the yummy icing so people would know which delicious variety they were about to consume.

The banana cake recipe is a great basic recipe that can be tweaked to your liking (I add a little cinnamon to the batter). Make sure you check out that recipe on Em’s blog too!

    These look amazing.. I am going to bake them for a birthday surprise at work tomorrow! I would just like to ask if you could advise on the cooking time, as in the orginial recipe it says to bake for 30 minutes but obviously as i will be baking in cupcake tins and not a large loaf tin the baking time would be faster?

    Yummmm. These look so scrumptious. I actually did something quite similar a couple days ago, except I made a delicious caramel frosting atop of my cupcakes. It was really simple to make and quite tasty! Check out my blog to take a look, would be happy to share the recipe with anyone who’s interested. :)

    Can’t wait to try this recipe – did you follow the recipe exactly, with the addition of the cinnamon? How much cinnamon did you add? Thanks!!!

    Looks yum-o!!

      Wow this was a long time ago…I am guessing I added about 1 teaspoon, but I cannot say for sure. Sorry, I can’t be of more help, but this was in blogging newbie days.
