Naked Cupcakes in Choco Banana

I love sweets and pastries and what better way to have them thank making them with my own 2 fat hands.  My first bake was a so/so (some are underbake) but this cupcake recipe that I found here is yummy enough to wow my family.  So why Naked Cupcake?  Because it doesn't have any frosting (I don't know how to make one).

  1. Wow, this looks delicious! I love banana desserts. I'm going to try this as soon as I can :D
    I never knew what naked cupcakes were, but these sound really awesome. I like how they look like they taste really amazing without frosting.
