postheadericon Bananas Foster Cupcakes

I don't know about you, but bananas seem to multiply in our house.  So, when I was thinking about what recipe to share with you this week, I immediate thought, " how about a way to use some of these bananas?"  And I also thought, "could you make banana cupcakes?"  So I looked on Pinterest and found some banana cupcakes!  Between the cupcakes and the frosting, I used four bananas!  Heck, these things are practically healthy!  Enjoy these!  




Bananas Foster Cupcakes
adapted from Blissfully Delicious

2 2/3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks butter
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1 cup shredded coconut (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.  In a larger mixing bow (I used my stand mixer), beat the butter and sugars.  Add the eggs and vanilla.  Continue to beat at a low speed until combined.  

Next, add the flour mixture and milk, alternating each, starting and ending with the flour. 

Fill the cupcake pans (this makes at least a dozen) and bake approximately 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  

Allow the cupcakes to cool completely before frosting. 

Frosting
1 1/2 sticks butter
2 ripe bananas
approximately 5 cups powdered sugar

Bring butter and bananas to room temperature.  Slowly add the sugar until the frosting at the desired consistency.  

Enjoy!  Please let me know what you think!  Sharing this recipe here:
