Banana Nut Cupcakes

Banana Nut Cupcakes

"These moist cupcakes from Vicki Abrahamson taste like little loaves of banana bread. 'I keep ripe bananas in the freezer, so I can whip up these cupcakes whenever I need them for a bake sale or party,' notes the Seabeck, Washington subscriber. 'I like to top them with cream cheese frosting,' she adds."
