Amazing Banana Cupcakes

Amazing Banana Cupcakes

Amazing banana cupcakes are a delightful dessert made with ripe bananas and a tender, moist cake batter. These cupcakes are known for their rich banana flavor and are often topped with a creamy frosting.

To make amazing banana cupcakes, you'll typically start by combining dry ingredients such as all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sometimes spices like cinnamon or nutmeg. In a separate bowl, the wet ingredients, including mashed ripe bananas, butter or oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract, are mixed until well combined. The dry ingredients are then gradually added to the wet mixture, creating a smooth batter.

The batter is then portioned into cupcake liners and baked in a preheated oven until they are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Once baked, the cupcakes are cooled completely before being frosted.

For the frosting, cream cheese frosting is a popular choice for banana cupcakes. Cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract are whipped together until smooth and creamy. The frosting is then generously spread or piped onto the cooled cupcakes.

The result is a batch of amazing banana cupcakes that are moist, flavorful, and topped with a delectable cream cheese frosting. They make a wonderful dessert for parties, birthdays, or any occasion where you want to showcase the deliciousness of ripe bananas.

A recipe for amazing banana cupcakes:


For the cupcakes:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

For the cream cheese frosting:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional garnish:

  • Sliced bananas
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Add the mashed bananas to the butter mixture and mix until well combined.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  6. Fill each cupcake liner about two-thirds full with the batter.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
  8. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and let them cool in the muffin tin for a few minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. While the cupcakes are cooling, prepare the cream cheese frosting. In a mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and butter together until smooth and creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, beating until the frosting is light and fluffy.
  10. Once the cupcakes have cooled, frost the tops with the cream cheese frosting. You can use a piping bag or simply spread the frosting with a knife.
