Sticky, sweet, and bursting with bananas, these cupcakes provide the perfect antidote for the after-school munchies.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

To prepare cupcakes, weigh or lightly spoon flours and cornstarch into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, cornstarch, baking powder, and next 4 ingredients (through cinnamon) in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk.

Step 3

Combine granulated sugar, banana, and canola oil in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add flour mixture and 1/2 cup milk alternately to sugar mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture.

Step 4

Place 18 paper muffin cup liners in muffin cups; coat liners with cooking spray. Spoon batter into prepared cups. Bake at 350° for 24 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes in pans on a wire rack; remove from pans. Cool completely on wire rack.

Step 5

To prepare frosting, heat butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook 2 minutes or until browned, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; cool 5 minutes.

Step 6

Place browned butter, powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at low speed until smooth. Spread frosting over cupcakes, and sprinkle with brickle chips.

Moist GF cupcake

March 14, 2015
The cake part of this is delicious! This cake doesn't have a strange texture at all and is really moist. The frosting is really too sweet for my liking and has an odd consistency. This is a good solid gluten free cupcake.
