Banana Walnut Cupcakes With Cream Cheese Frosting

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

Stated by several as the best thing I have ever baked... these are soooo good, and the frosting is the best cream cheese frosting I have come across yet.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cupcake batter: Cream butter and sugars, add mashed bananas. Add eggs and vanilla. Add flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in yogurt. Add walnuts.
  2. Scoop into 12 cupcake papers (I used an ice cream scoop.) Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 18-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Mine took 20 minutes.
  3. Frosting: Whip cream cheese, vanilla and confectioners sugar, by hand or electric mixer.

These may have tasted a little more like muffins, than cupcakes, but that was just fine by us! The recipe made 17 cupcakes for me, but I probably could have made them a little bigger. Still would have had more than a dozen, which was a bonus! We enjoyed them immensely, and will be making them again! Thanks so much for sharing a great recipe, missyqh! Made for Fall PAC 2011.

I made this recipe yesterday and I would definitely never make it again. It was WAY TOO SWEET!!! Everyone in my family thought so and we ended up throwing out the last few. Take a look at the nutritional info.
