BANANA COCONUT CUPCAKES WITH CREAM CHEESE FROSTING (TRADITIONAL VERSION)
Makes 12

INGREDIENTS:
2 ripe bananas
2 eggs
¾ cup (150 g) sugar
¾ cup (180 ml) Canola oil
½ cup (120 ml) water
1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla
1 ¼ cup (150 g) flour
1 tsp (5 ml) baking powder
½ tsp (2.5 ml) salt

FROSTING:
16 oz (460 g)cream cheese
½ cup (50 g) powdered sugar
1/3 cup (80 ml) milk
1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla extract

GARNISH:
½ cup (120 ml) Sweetened Coconut Flakes

METHOD:
Preheat oven to 400F/(200C)

In a large bowl mash two very rip bananas into a paste. Add eggs, sugar, oil, water, vanilla. Whisk until combined.

In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk until combined.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until combined.

With an ice cream scoop, scoop 1 scoop of batter into each baking cup.

If using the Simply Baking Cups bake for 25-27 mins until golden brown and baked through. If baking in regular muffin papers bake for 20mins-22 mins until golden brown and baked through.

Allow to cool completely.

Combine the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until smooth. Add milk and beat until combined.

Transfer frosting to a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. (I really like the Wilton 2D tip for these)

Pipe a mound of frosting and dust with the coconut.
