Banana Cupcakes with Honey Frosting

banana cupcakes

I originally posted this recipe in March of 2008.  That was just a few weeks after I started this site.  I decided it would be a good recipe to repost since I had very few readers back then.  When I posted this recipe I actually posted only the recipe and nothing else.  No description and no talking about it, just the recipe.  Today, I thought I would post at least a little more information on them, because I really do like them. In fact, I need to make these again soon because my family loves these.

These are really good with frosting as a cupcake.  The frosting is a really good and unique honey frosting that works on lots of other cupcakes and cakes.  The cupcakes are good without the frosting, which makes them more muffin like.  I have also made this recipe using part whole wheat and it worked well.
