Hummingbird Cupcakes

Looking back at my posts, I realised it has been some time since I last posted what I have baked. Yes, I'm still baking every weekend-or at least I try to. I made these hummingbird cupcakes recently. These cupcakes contained banana and crushed pineapple pieces which I think it is a fantastic combination. Very tropical and moist. Although the recipe did not come with frosting notes, I deliberately used cream cheese as I believe that the combination will be tasteful.

So anyway, give it a go. It's pretty healthy as well given the use of olive oil. I made 12 cupcakes and 14 tiny patty cakes from this recipe.

Its like a tropical fruit cake almost isn't it? Have never tried making these but the recipe does call for a cream cheese frosting. You were spot on!! Great blog you have here, why couldn't I have a friend like you when i was in university!! :-)
