Eggless Banana Cupcake

Holidays are always fun, especially the one that falls in lovely December. Schools are closed, the pressure meter at work reads normal, a vacation mood all together and this is the best time to be together as a family. Its my time of the year when i try my hand on crafts and cooking experiments.

I made a batch of spongy cupcakes this week. I usually make chocolate or vanilla cupcakes. This time I tried out cupcakes with a fruity twist and they came out quite well. It is a simple and eggless version that both kids and adults will relish.

I will cut down the talking and go on straight to the recipe:

Butter Frosting:

Beat softened butter till light and fluffy. Add icing sugar and vanilla essence to the butter and beat well. Pop the frosting into an icing bag and decorate your banana cupcakes. Garnish it with a cherry in the centre.

Notes:

You could make it a healthy recipe by substituting refined flour with whole wheat flour.
