    I am making these banana cupcakes for my dad! The batter tasted great and I've put the cupcakes into the oven right now. However, I do have some leftover batter... I don't know what I've done wrong. Has anybody experienced this problem before? What can I do?

    I love banana muffins so much, so when I found out there was a banana cupcake I went right to it. I hope I am not disappointed by this recipe, and that the frosting creates stiff peaks that are good for piping. I'll let you know my thoughts on the recipe after its made!

    These are the most delicious & easy cupcakes. They're also nice & moist, And the Honey Cinnamon Frosting pairs very well with these & is also easy & delicious. It makes 12 good size cupcakes as the recipe states. This recipe will be a regular in my kitchen :)

    Cupcakes were very dense, very uncupcake like and more of a muffin. Still yummy, a bit too sweet but good none the less.

      If the frosting is too sweet then add a pinch or two of salt. It easily cuts down on the sweetness, and you wont even taste the salt! Salt is an ingredient most bakers use in their frosting. I do not know why this recipe does not mention it.

    Is it normal that they're too soft? I think they are ready but they are way too soft? Is it because of the banana??? Is it normal??

    Really good cupcakes! I use the recommended recipe for icing, but replace the honey with dark rum for a delicious rum-cinnamon icing. A real treat!

    When it says 350 degrees, I assume that's in Fahrenheit, right? It would be good to clarify these things for non-US users.

      @Aihpos, considering 350 degrees Fahrenheit is 662 degrees celsius, I'm pretty sure clarification is not needed...

        Well technically 350 degrees Fahrenheit is 177 degrees Celsius. And 350 degrees Celsius would be 662 degrees Fahrenheit. But close enough.

    Made these for our daughter's 4th birthday (as she requested strawberry banana cupcakes) with a strawberry cream cheese frosting! Yum. They were a hit! Everyone liked them. Lots like a moist banana bread ~ but that's okay with us. Will make again I'm sure! :) Thanks for the recipe.
