Low-cal Banana Cupcakes

I had a couple of rotten bananas sitting on the counter so I decided to make some cupcakes with them. These are pretty low in calories and still taste really good. The recipe needs no milk, the dough is actually quite thick but they turned out really tasty. The original recipe (from stated that it made 12 cupcakes at 198 calories each. But I like to make my cupcakes in the medium liners, thus making 20 at only 120 calories each! Of course the frosting adds extra.

Banana Cupcakes

1/2 cup margarine

3/4 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups white flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup mashed banana (the riper they are the better they will taste, I let them get really black)

In a large mixing bowl cream the margarine and sugar, add eggs and vanilla.

In a seperate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients and bananas to the creamed egg mixture. Mix well.

Place medium sized paper cupcake liners in muffin tin. Fill cups 2/3 full of batter.

Bake at 350 F until golden brown and place on rack to cool.

Butter icing:

2 cups icing sugar

1/4 cup margarine

3 tbsp milk

1 tsp vanilla

Beat together until smooth.

Thanks for stopping by!
