If banana bread went on a sunny island vacation and had a fling with a pineapple, you’d get something like these scrumptious cupcakes. And of course we can’t forget the topper of classic cream cheese frosting. These cupcakes will have a richer flavor if you toast the nuts before baking. Spread them in a single layer in a jellyroll pan, and bake at 350° for 5 to 8 minutes. Check frequently, because they burn easily.
