Eggless Banana walnut cupcake

Banana and walnut go well together. I tried banana walnut cakes before, but this time i wanted to make cupcakes with the same combination without egg.



Ingredients for cupcake:

1 cup all-purpose flour (250 ml cup)
2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup sugar or brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Ingredients for Frosting:

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Steps:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Place the cupcake liners to the cupcake tray. I personally prefer cupcake liners as they preserve the freshness of the baked cupcakes especially on the sides of the cupcake.



2. In a bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Repeat this process twice as it will make sure there are no lumps and the dry ingredients are mixed well. Now, the dry ingredients are ready.



3. In another bowl, mash the bananas with a fork or a hand mixer.



4. Add oil to the bananas and mix well.


5. Add sugar and mix well. Now the wet ingredients are ready.



6. Pour the wet ingredient to the dry ingredient bowl. Fold together gently. Do not over mix or beat the batter.


7. Add chopped walnuts and retain few of them for topping.


8. Mix the batter once and immediately transfer to the cupcake tray.


9. Fill only 3/4 of each of the cupcake liners, allowing room for the raising of the cupcakes.


10. Top each of the batter filled cupcake liners with few chopped walnuts.


11. Place the cupcake trays on the middle rack of the oven and bake at 350 F, for 25 to 28 minutes. Mine got baked at 25 minutes.


12. After 25 minutes, insert a toothpick/fork at the centre of the cupcake and see if it comes out clean. If not bake for few more minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.


 13. Remove the cupcakes from oven and let it cool for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the frosting.







14. Beat together sugar and butter till it becomes creamy, then add heavy whipping cream. Beat it further till it peaks stiff. Transfer the frosting (whipped contents) to a frosting bag or a ziplock cover. Top the cupcakes with frosting. You can also add any kind of fruit toppings. Here I have added cherry topping and am loving it :). Please do share your comments after trying this recipe.
