    Vino Girl's Note:

    These are so moist with a light banana flavor. The frosting is wonderful! My yield was only 10 cupcakes. From Cooking Light, October 2006.

      Great cupcakes! I used two small very ripe bananas and greek yogurt for this recipe and they came out amazing. Great texture and mellow banana flavor went very well with the sweet, but not overpowering, amaretto icing.
