It's always the best day to bake some delicious banana cupcakes. Don't you think? I'm a sucker for banana cupcakes and I always bake these whenever I can! Since banana cupcakes ask for ripe bananas, what would you do if you don't have them? Well, read through this and I'll give you some tips!
This recipe is the perfect banana cupcake recipe! I have tried and tested other ones, but this one is the easiest and most delicious! The cupcakes are perfectly moist, soft, and sweet. Super ripen bananas help with the entire flavor profile of the cupcakes, so make sure you use ripe bananas. Then, they are topped with a cream cheese frosting and a sprinkling of cinnamon. Additionally, instead of sprinkling the cinnamon on top, you can mix this into the frosting mixture and you will have cinnamon cream cheese frosting!
You might not have ripe bananas all the time, so here are three things you can do to help speed up the ripening.
First, you can place the bananas in a brown paper bag. Second, baking unpeeled bananas on a foil-lined baking sheet at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes or until the banana skins turn completely black. Last, using a microwave. Heat the bananas for about 30 seconds or until you hear them sizzling.
