Ingredients
For the cupcakes:
  • 5 organic, cage-free egg whites
  • ¾ cup organic gluten free flour (or unbleached wheat flour)
  • 2 organic, over-ripe bananas (pureed)
  • 2 tablespoons organic honey
  • 1 teaspoon organic, real vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon organic ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon organic ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon organic ground clove
For the whipped custard frosting:
  • 5 organic cage-free egg yolks
  • 1 cup organic whole milk
  • ¼ cup organic honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon organic ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup organic, grass-fed whipping cream
  • 2 Tablespoons organic raw honey
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. With a mixer, beat egg whites on high until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  3. In a different bowl, stir together the flour and spices.
  4. Into the flour mixture, add the pureed banana, honey and vanilla. Blend until smooth.
  5. Fold the whipped egg whites into the banana and flour mixture, mixing until the two are just combined.
  6. Spoon the batter into a lined cupcake pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow them to cool completely.
  7. While the cupcakes are baking and cooling, make the frosting. Pour the milk into a saucepan, and stir in the honey. Bring this mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat. Carefully drizzle the beaten egg yolks into the hot milk mixture, a tiny bit at a time so that the eggs don't set.
  8. Remove the custard from the heat and add the vanilla and cinnamon, and then cool the custard completely in the fridge.
  9. When the cupcakes are cooked and cooled, take the custard out of the fridge and whip it with a mixer until it's smooth. Transfer it to a different bowl, and then whip some organic whipping cream and honey until it's light and fluffy. Fold the custard into the whipped cream and stir until it's combined.
  10. Put the frosting in a decorating bag fitted with a star-shaped tip and pipe the custard on top of the cupcakes. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon and a slice of banana or a candied almond, and serve up a little sweet happiness!
