Banana Muffins/Cupcakes

1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cups sugar 
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups mashed bananas (about 4)
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350.  In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Make a well in the center of flour mixture.  In well, mix together butter, bananas, eggs and vanilla.  Stir to incorporate flour mixture but do not overmix.  Divide evenly into a 12 cup muffin pan lined with paper liners.  Bake for 25-30 minutes.

If you want to turn them into cupcakes, try my "Sprinkles" cream cheese frosting.  I created it to mimic Sprinkles frosting.  It's definitely not exactly like Sprinkles, but it's delicious nonetheless.  You can make it different flavors by adding different juices and/or extracts.

1 1/2 oz. cream cheese
5 tbsp. unsalted butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1-2 tbsp. whole milk or cream

Beat all the ingredients.
