Banana Toffee Cupcakes: In bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Whisk together banana and sour cream. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture alternately with banana mixture, making 3 additions of flour mixture and 2 of banana mixture. Stir in toffee bits.
