Banana Cardamom Cake (Or Cupcakes) (Ww)

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by ellie_

We made these into cupcakes and skipped the frosting -- if using the frosting this equals 5 WW points. I figure without the frosting this is 4 pts/serving. Recipe source: WW Heathy Cooking Basics.

A wonderful recipe! For some reason, cardamom was WAY too much $--so I subbed a with combo of cinnamon & nutmeg. The next time I made them, I just used cinnamon! I used my "jumbo muffin" pan to make nice sized cupcakes, then tried some heart shaped dishes the next time. They bake up well! The frosting was a bit problematic for me--I had to really whip it to smooth out the lumps in the cream cheese, then put it in the fridge to chill so it would spread easier. Once the cupcakes cooled, then we frosted them as we ate. After a day in the fridge they tasted even better. thank u so much for sharing!
