We have used this recipe at least twice & it was wonderful both times. We're going to use it again for a birthday soon & I know it will be loved, it's much better than a cake.

Muffins:

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 ripe bananas, peeled and coarsely mashed

Frosting:

3 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/3 cup mascarpone cheese, room temperature
3 tablespoons honey
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted


Method:

Line 18 muffin cups with paper liners. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium bowl to blend. Beat the sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl to blend. Stir in the banana. Add the dry ingredients and stir just until blended.

Bake the muffins on the middle rack until the tops are golden brown. Place the muffins on a rack and cool.

To frost the cupcakes:

Beat the cream cheese and butter in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the mascarpone cheese and then beat in the honey. Spread the frosting over the muffins. Sprinkle with the walnuts.

Name: Jill | Comment: The mascarpone frosting completely curdled and separated and the muffins were really nothing to write home about! A bit heavy and not terribly tasty. I was going to make some regular cream cheese frosting but the muffins were so hum drum that I decided not to waste the ingredients!
