Don’t worry – the name of these cupcakes comes from the dried pineapple flowers that decorate them – NOT because they contain hummingbird! In fact the batter on these treats is made from a combination of cinnamon, flour, salt, butter, eggs, walnuts, crushed pineapple, banana and coconut, along with a few other, more standard things. After baking, cover them in a traditional homemade cream cheese frosting, before placing the dried pineapple flowers on top for a beautiful and tasty combination!

Monkey bread is sticky, gooey, covers in cinnamon and sugar and just plain tasty. These monkey bread cupcakes take that idea and spin it a bit. The dough is rolled into a ball around some banana slices and chocolate bits, before dunked in melted butter and cinnamon and sugar. Each ball then goes into a cupcake liner (although it’s more fun to squeeze two into one liner to evoke the real thing) and baked before being coated in a sugar-y, cinnamon-y glaze.
