1stick (113 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/3cup(67 grams) granulated sugar
1/4cup(50 grams) light brown sugar
1/4cup(57 grams) sour cream
2large eggs, at room temperature
2large overripe bananas, mashed
About 1/4 cup prepared dulce de leche
For the chocolate cream cheese frosting:
8ounces(227 grams) cream cheese, at room temperature
4tablespoons(57 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature
3cups(375 grams) powdered sugar
1/2cup(43 grams) good-quality cocoa powder
For the cupcakes:
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a standard muffin tin with paper cupcake liners.
In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
In the bowl of a stand mixer beat the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the sour cream and vanilla and beat until combined. On medium speed add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until combined. Add the mashed bananas and beat until combined. On low speed gradually add the flour mixture and beat just until combined. Do not overmix.
Use a spring loaded scoop to fill each cupcake liner three-quarters full. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Remove to a wire rack and let cool completely.
Use a small knife or apple corer to cut a small hole in the middle of each cupcake. Place the dulce de leche in a zip top bag and snip one small corner. Squeeze out about 1 1/2 teaspoons of dulce de leche into each cupcake.
For the frosting:
In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the cream cheese and butter on medium-high until smooth and creamy. Sift the powdered sugar and cocoa powder into a large bowl. On low speed gradually add the sugar and cocoa, beating until incorporated. Increase the speed to high and blend until smooth and creamy.
Place the frosting into a piping bag fitted with a decorative tip. Pipe frosting onto the cupcakes, directly over the filling. Serve or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Let come to room temperature before serving.
