Cupcake Ingredients

  • 2 cups (250g) all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup (100g) light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 1/4 cup (60g) sour cream
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (room temperature)

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 1/2 cup butter (softened)
  • 8 oz full-fat cream cheese
  • 3 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Line a 12 cup and a 6 cup muffin pan with liners.
  • Whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together. Set aside.
  • Using a stand mixer with paddle attachment (or a hand mixer) blend together the oil and sugars. Then add the eggs, sour cream, vanilla, and buttermilk. Then slowly blend in the dry ingredients. Mix until fully incorporated (don't over-blend). Finally add bananas and blend together with a spatula.
  • For more flavor consider adding 1/2 cup chocolate chips or walnuts to the batter.
  • Pour/spoon the batter into the liners – make sure to fill only 2/3 full to avoid spilling over the sides. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • While cupcakes are cooling, make the frosting. In a large bowl using a hand mixer or with a stand mixer beat the butter and sour cream together until creamy. Slowly add the flour and blend until completely mixed. Then add vanilla and blend again.
  • You can frost these cupcakes however you would like to. However I prefer to pipe my cupcakakes. For the cupcakes picture here I used the Aetco 808 large round tip.
