My Iron Cupcake entry for this month is Banana Pecan Spice mini-cupcakes with white chocolate chips and a cinnamon cream cheese frosting. The required ingredient of the month is nuts/seeds.
I had a ginormous craving for banana cake. Bananas are one of nature’s most perfect fruits. Did you know a banana grows into a flower if it doesn’t get picked at the right time? Go say high to my friend Tyler of Raspberry Runner, she has a cool picture of one from her trip to Costa Rica. Anywhoo…
These are melt-in your mouth delicious and the aroma of them will drive you wild. There’s nothing like the irresistible smell of bananas and warm apple pie spices. Each and every bite is loaded with soft white chocolate, crunchy pecans, luscious cream-cheese frosting and a cinnamon-spicy banana flavor. The cream cheese frosting complements the cupcakes flavors perfectly. The icing on the cake! Truly.
And another reason why I like mini cuppies? There’s the perfect ratio of frosting to cake. With the big cupcakes there’s not always enough frosting. I like each bite to have some. Especially when it’s cream cheese.
