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.

So delicious! Made them twice and both times they turned out perfect. And they freeze great!

They are a hit with us! I'm freezing them for Sunday. We'll have to see if they're 'freeze-worthy.'
