Banana Cream Cheese Cupcakes

These cup cakes came out absolutley amazing! I adapted this recipe to use honey inplace of some of the sugar and all of the vanilla extract in the frosting. I also used plain chobani yogurt instead of sour cream, I love experimenting and changing recipes a little bit. I its so much fun to see if it works in this case it wourk out perfectly!

2/3 C butter, softened
1/2 C sugar
1/4 raw honey (wildflower or clover)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs- lightly beaten

3/4 C greek yogurt
1 C mashed banana
2 ¼ C flour
1/4 teaspoon soda
1.Preheat oven to 350 F
2.Prep muffin tins
3.Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar, honey and vanilla until pale and creamy.
4. Add eggs,1/2 of mixture at a time.
5. Gently fold in yogurt and bananas.
6. Sift flour soda over batter and gently fold through.
7. Spoon batter into cake pan, smooth surface, and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.
8. Stand for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.
