thought's i'd break out the baking tins this weekend. decided to try this lovely looking recipe from my new favourite http://www.marthastewart.com/
decided to try baking some banana cupcakes with honey-cinnamon frosting.
the recipe is really easy-peasy! a beginner could do it, but watch out, the cupcake recipe are for real banana lovers only. the cupcakes turned out pretty interesting- it's quite dense, with a healthy dose of bananas in them (i'll probably reduce the bananas when i try this again). It's almost like a moist banana-bread. If you're a banana lover, you'd just love these moist luscious cupcakes.
The frosting is really sweet, the recipe asked for just a bit of cinnamon. i love the flavour of cinnamon more than honey, so i loaded on more cinnamon to suit my own tastebuds. It turned out pretty good by accident really, as the bananas i used weren't actually suitable for baking- mom bought them for banana fritters. They were ripe, but not as sweet as other bananas, a little bit on the tart side. Which worked perfect for me, it balanced off the sweetness of the honey-cinnamon frosting.
All in all, i enjoyed it, i'd definitely try these again!
