I made Banana Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Vanilla Frosting for my birthday yesterday, and they turned out so good, I had to share the recipe! For the frosting, I kept it easy and used Simple Mills Organic Vanilla Frosting—but the key to getting it to spread all nice and creamy like you see in the photo above, is to transfer the frosting into a bowl, warm it up in the microwave for about 30 seconds, and stir well. You’ll get the perfect creamy consistency. Now moving onto the cupcakes, here is the recipe.

  1. Hi, if you’re using flax eggs instead of regular eggs, will these muffins be super moist? And will they rise? Also, how many tbsp of water if doing 3 flax eggs?

  2. These didn’t work for me either! I followed the recipe step by step and it remained soupy and liquidity in the middle. I don’t have any altitude problems here in PHL 🙁

  3. I’m so sad these didn’t work at all! I followed the recipe exactly and even though I baked them for an hour they were burnt on the outside and liquid in the middle. I live in Denver so those who live at altitude, this recipe won’t work!

    • It must definitely be an altitude thing bc this recipe has been tested and perfected! I’m so sorry you didn’t have a good result!
