Penny Cupcakes for Your Lil Pupcakes!


I think these treats look fab, not just because I love cupcakes, but also because North's birthday is only one month away! The Penny Cupcakes are named for a fave friend of Isaboo and are safe treats for pets . . . but still yummy enough for you, too! Found in the June/July issue of Every Day With Rachael Ray, get the recipe for yum-o spiced banana and carrot cakes when you read more.

Penny Cupcakes

Ingredients

2 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 carrot, grated, plus more for garnish
1 large egg
¼ cup honey
4 cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking powder
6 ounces softened cream cheese, optional

Directions

This confectionery creation is an adapted, healthier version of carrot-and-banana cake that you can share with your K-9 companion!

Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease two 12-cup muffin pans. In a large bowl, mix together the mashed bananas, carrot, egg and honey; stir in 3 cups water.
In another large bowl, stir together flour, cinnamon, allspice, ginger and baking powder; mix into the carrot mixture.
Fill each muffin cup about three-quarters full. Bake until firm and dry, about 45 minutes. Let cool, then top each cupcake with more grated carrot and smear with cream cheese if desired.
