Walnut Banana Cupcakes Recipe

What makes these tender banana cupcakes extra special is the nutmeg, but make sure it's fresh. They're amazingly good; I get request for them all the time. —Rachel Krupp, Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania

"Great, moist cupcakes. I did increase the bananas to 1 cup, and added some cinnamon to the mashed bananas. Very good!!"

"I did not think they were anything special.. I added 2 bananas. I didn't think 1/2 cup would have been enough of a banana flavor. They were moist but bland. Nothing exceptional."

"Very easy to make and very delicious! I doubled the batch, which worked out well considering that half of the cupcakes were gone in less than 24 hours."

"These cupcakes were awesome! They have a great banana flavor and are very moist. The only problem with this recipe is that it only makes a dozen. I will definitely double the recipe the next time I make them. They were devoured by my family as soon as they were cool enough to eat."
