Walnut Banana Cupcakes

I love anything made with bananas. Including these cupcakes.

Cupcake Ingredients

1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup mashed ripe bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sour cream

Cupcake Instructions

Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add banana and vanilla. Mix well. In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt. Add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream. Fill paper lined muffin cups about half full. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes. Cool completely before frosting.

Frosting Ingredients

4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups icing sugar
3 tablespoons chopped walnuts

Frosting Instructions

Combine cream cheese and vanilla, beating until fluffy. Add icing sugar gradually until frosting reaches a spreadable consistency. Spread over cooled cupcakes. Garnish with chopped walnuts.
