Banana and Walnut Cupcakes

I have to confess to not being a cupcake fan. This is because I find the topping too sweet and too much! My friend loves them, so I made some for her birthday. It was yet another way of using up some very ripe bananas.

225g plain white flour
1 1/4 tspn baking powder
1/4 tspn bicarb of soda
2 ripe bananas, mashed
115g butter, softened
115g caster sugar
1/2 tspn vanilla extract
2 eggs
4 tbsp soured cream
55g walnut pieces, roughly chopped

Topping
175g butter, softened
350g icing sugar
some walnut pieces, roughly chopped

Preheat oven 190C/gas 5.               Line 2 cupcake or muffin tins with 14 paper cupcake cases 

Sift together the flour, baking powder and bicarb of soda.
Beat the butter, caster sugar and vanilla extract together in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs, then stir in the mashed bananas, soured cream and walnuts. Fold in the flour mixture.
 Put the mixture into the paper cups and bake for about 25 mins until risen and firm and golden brown. Leave to cool in the tin for about 10 mins before putting onto a wire rack.

Topping: beat the butter until light and fluffy, then sift in the icing sugar and mix well together. I added a little bit of vanilla extract too.
Decorate the cupcakes when cool with the icing and some chopped walnuts. 

The cupcake tasted very much like a muffin and the topping is very sweet. I'm not good at cake decoration, so my swirls wouldn't make it to GBBO! My friend was very happy, so all was well!

I'm not really a fan of the elaborate, over-the-top cupcakes that were everywhere a few years ago but you're clearly being much more restrained and tasteful than some of those and walnut cakes are are a real treat in my opinion. Sounds like a fine treat to me even though it's not my birthday.
