Really good basic recipe... Like other commenters, I found it a little more muffin-y than a classic cupcake, but that's not a problem to me. (It's sort of a cross between the two.) I added cinnamon (because I'm a sucker for banana and cinnamon together) and it works well. I also went with a basic cream cheese icing just because that's my fave. Just a personal note - I discovered I only had one egg on hand after I'd mashed the bananas and sifted out my flour... so I subbed in a T of mayo. Worked beautifully. (Done that before... adds a little tang to sweets believe it or not.) Thanks for a really easy quick cupcake fix. :)
