Banana Cupcakes

Did you know SugaBah's (Sugar Gliders) love bananas? It seemed only appropriate to bake these on a lazy sunday afternoon. It was grey and drizzly outside, so these offered a lil sunshine for the tummy!


1 cup (2 sticks) of butter, softened
2 cups self-rising flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 eggs, room temperature
1 cup mashed banana (about 2 bananas)
4 tablespoons coconut milk (optional)


1 cup (8 ounces) of cream cheese
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar, sifted
Sliced banana (optional)

Set the oven to 350 and line 18 cupcakes tins with paper liners.

Mix together the dry ingredients still smooth. Add the bananas and beat with an electric mixer till thick and fluffy. Mix in the coconut milk. Spoon into the cupcake tins.

For the frosting, mix the cream cheese till smooth. Add in the rest of the ingredients; add cinnamon to taste. If you do not care cinnamon, you can omit it all together.

Garnish with a slice of banana! If you dont want the banana to brown, sprinkle a lil lemon juice on top to help preserve it.

Remember to serve away from cats! I brought some to my brother's house and his kitty managed to get the tin foil off the tray. She licked the frosting off three cupcakes. These cupcakes are kitty approved?
