Number of serving: 12
2 1/3 cup all purpose flour

3/4 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 extra-ripe bananas, mashed with a fork until smooth

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 stick butter, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/3 cup well-shaken buttermilk

for cream cheese frosting:

1 stick butter, softened

8 ounces cream cheese, softened

3 cups powdered sugar

seeds of one vanilla bean (or 2 teaspoons vanilla extract but if you can get the vanilla bean, do makes a big difference!)


  • Preheat your oven to 350 and grease (or line) a cupcake pan.
  • Cream together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy and then add the eggs, one at time, beating after each addition.
  • In a small bowl, combine the mashed banana with the vanilla and buttermilk and stir well until combined.
  • In a larger bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon).
  • Add the wet and dry ingredients alternately to the creamed butter, mixing well after each addition.
  • This works best if you have a Kitchen Aid and keep it running on low the whole time.
  • Fill muffin tins about 3/4th of the way full and bake for 25 minutes, or until golden. Let cool completely while you make the frosting.
  • For the frosting, beat together the butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add the vanilla bean seeds and powdered sugar and beat on high until light and fluffy.
  • Top cupcakes with toffee bits if you like.
