Recipe for Banana Minicupcakes:

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour.
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour.
  • 1/2 teaspoon  baking soda.
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder.
  • pintch of salt.
  • 1 and 1/2 riped bananas mashed.
  • 1/3 cup white sugar.
  • 1/2 egg previously beaten by you with a fork. (just mix the whole egg in a cup and then keep the half, and beat with a fork for a bit)
  • 1/2 oz. unsalted butter at room temperature


Procedure:

Preheat your oven 350º . Prepare your liners in your tray. 
In a medium bowl sieve your flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, add salt. 
Cream the butter and bananas together (if your butter was not soft enought beat it first, then add the bananas) , add the sugar, keep beating at medium speed, then add the egg (or half of it).
Stop, and at slow speed , little by little add your flour mix. just keep mixing until all is well blended.
You will have a very thick mix. Not to worry, perfectly normal, you are 10 minutes away from perfect minicupcakes!

Fill your liners 1/3 , 1/2.  Bake for 8 to 13 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean. 

In my oven they were ready at 12 minutes. 

Caramel Frosting:

  • 1 oz. butter room temperature, almost melting
  • 2 oz. cream cheese
  • 3 table spoons of caramel, I used smuckers, but you can make your own or use what you know.
  • 2 cups sieved icing sugar
  • milk ( just use a teaspoon if you think the frosting is too thick for you) I like it very thick.
Beat the butter on a medium speed for 1 minute, then add the cream cheese, beat until they are perfectly blended and can´t tell them apart. Add the caramel, then at a very slow speed add your sugar , one spoonfull at a time until blended. If you think is very thick, add the teaspoon of milk.

And this is it! pipe away the way you like and use anything you like to make them pretty. I drizzled them with more caramel and use a banana chip. 
Enjoy the compliments and remember me when you do.
