Number of Servings: 1


    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    4 ripe medium bananas, cut into chunks
    1 cup skim buttermilk
    1/2 cup reduced-calorie tub margarine
    1/2 cup minus 1 tablespoon firmly packed light brown sugar
    1 large egg, at room temperature
    1/2 cup dried currants
    1 1/4 cups part-skim ricotta cheese
    2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 tablespoon rum


Preheat oven to 350oF. Line 12 muffin cups with double papers. In medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. In large bowl, with mixer on medium speed, combine bananas, buttermilk, margarine, 1/4 cup of the brown sugar and the egg; beat to mix well. Stir in flour mixture; mix just until blended. Add currants; stir to mix well. Fill each muffin cup with an equal amount of batter. Bake 35-40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Transfer pan to rack; let cool completely. Meanwhile, to prepare frosting, in food processor or blender combine ricotta cheese, remaining 3 tablespoons brown sugar, the cocoa and rum; process until smooth. Evenly spread frosting on cooled cupcakes.
