I’m sure that you’ve heard of the classics: banana bread and banana cake. Now you can add one more to the list — banana cupcakes! Made from mashed bananas, eggs, flour, and vanilla extract, plus other traditional ingredients, after baking, these cupcakes turn out to be both moist, light and amazingly tasty. The honey cream frosting consists of only five ingredients: honey, butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar and heavy cream, resulting in a sweet and light topping that pairs perfectly with the bananas in the batter.

Maple bacon doughnuts are the newest trend, and now you can add these maple french toast and bacon cupcakes to the list as well.

But, what “really takes the cake” so to speak, is the maple syrup and cinnamon flavored cream cheese frosting.

When you want an instant reaction about how delicious your cupcakes is, this is the recipe to try. The carrot cupcake with carrot bits and raisins has just the right amount of bite and although you know they are healthy, these certainly don’t taste like health food. The cream cheese icing has just the right amount of tanginess to balance out the cupcake underneath in both taste and texture. Tangy, sweet and delicious; just the way you like it.
Made using ingredients already in your cupboard, these guilt-free perfectly moist cupcakes contain applesauce and less fat from butter without sacrificing taste. This makes them perfect when you are looking for a dessert you can have everyday. The pecans add just the right amount of ‘bite’ to contrast the cream cheese frosting. You can’t really ask for anything more in the light sweetness of this cupcake you can have everyday without feeling one bite of guilt.

The frosting is an apple and cinnamon flavored buttercream, making these the perfect treats for fall!
