Banana Pecan Spice Mini-Cuppie Cakes

Banana Pecan Spice Mini-Cuppie Cakes
(makes about 28 mini’s or 14 regular size)

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature, cut into small pieces
¾ cup sugar
1 and ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
½ cup milk
1 cup banana, smashed (about 3 ripe)
1 cup white chocolate chips
½ cup chopped Pecans

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place paper liner in a 12-cup cupcake pan or mini-muffin cups in a 24-cup pan.
  2. Whisk flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves together in a small bowl until combined; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, using a hand mixer set on medium-high speed, beat butter until creamy (about two minutes). Add sugar gradually, beat until light and fluffy for two more minutes. Beat in vanilla extract.
  4. Beat in eggs one at a time, scraping down after each addition. Add the flour mixture in four additions, alternating with milk. Begin and end with the flour mixture and beat until smooth on low-medium speed after each addition. Beat in banana just until incorporated. Stir in pecans and chips. Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full.
  5. Bake 18-20 minutes for regular size muffins or 14-15 minutes for minis, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. A crumb or two on the toothpick is fine.
  6. Cool in pan for 5-10 minutes than remove to wire racks. Cool completely before frosting.
    Cream Cheese Frosting
    8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
    4 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    2-2 and 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
    1-2 tablespoons Milk
  7. Beat the cream cheese until fluffy, about two minutes.
  8. Add butter and beat another minute. Add vanilla extract and cinnamon, beat in.
  9. Add confectioners ½ cup at a time. Add in a tablespoon milk. Add sugar and milk in small amounts, beating in between until you get the right consistency. Beat an additional two – three minutes until frosting is light and fluffy.

My oven maximum 250°, can i use this recipe with 250° instead of 350°?

I’m a big banana cakes fan. Why didn’t you add some photo about your Banana Pecan Spice Mini that you made.

Thanks for your recipe and guide!

You’re very welcomed - I don’t always take pics and i should have.

Made this yesterday with my 10 year old son. Very simple, I used 3 bananas (did not weigh them but had read below that 2 or 3 was ok), it did cook in 1h10 min and was very good. Will definitely make again.

Great recipie but i hate nutmeg, what would be a good substiture if i wasn’t using that?

I leave it out - not fond of it myself.

Great recipes I cooked according to your instructions. And I had a very tasty meal

I love cake but i never try this recipe of cake so i will try this recipe very soon. Thank you very much for sharing this Banana Pecan Spice Mini-Cuppie Cakes recipe.

I am not a big fan of nutmeg - I will either use a small pinch or leave it out.
