  1. Cake ingredients:
  2. 2 cups water

  7. 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  8. 4 cups whole-wheat flour
  9. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  10. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Icing ingredients:
  2. 3/4 cup cream cheese

For cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  4. Combine dry and wet mixture and mix thoroughly.
  5. Spoon into cupcake tins (lined with cupcake papers) about 3/4 full. Handy tip: Spray inside the paper liner with a bit on nonstick spray (Pam) or lightly coat with butter. Otherwise the cupcake will stick to the liner. I learned this the hard way

  7. Cool cupcakes on rack before frosting.
