Banana cupcakes

    40 min

    Yummy and healthy-ish cupcakes, they almost melt in the mouth when eaten fresh out the tray before topping is added!

    Serves: 24 

    • 225g plain flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 110g butter
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 bananas (mashed up)
    • 55ml milk, or buttermilk
    • 2 eggs
    • 115g caster sugar

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    2. Sift all the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix together.
    3. Put the butter and vanilla in a seperate bowl and beat together until it's creamy.
    4. Gradually add sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy, add the eggs one at a time beating each time.
    5. Add a bit of milk at a time, then a bit of dry mixture, then a bit of banana to the cream mixture - beat well each time and keep doing this until you only have one bowl of mixture!
    6. Fill cupcake tray or cases 1/2 full as they rise quite well, bake for about 20mins. Leave to cool in tray for 5 - 10 mins, I put mine in silicon cases and if you pull them out too early theyre a bit wobbly! Taste good with peanut butter cream.

    Used different ingredients. Delicious, I added a packet of chocolate chips. Wonderful in combination with the banana!  -  24 May 2011


    I made a batch of these today, very easy to make and very light and yummy, also didn't need any icing!  -  03 Apr 2011


    Used different ingredients. I turned these into banoffee cupcakes - I added a little cinnamon, and when spooning the mixture into the cases I put a bit of mixture, then a teaspoon of dulce du leche, then more mixture on top. Topped off with buttercream icing, a slice of banana (dipped in lemon juice to stop it browning) and dark chocolate curls - yum!  -  01 May 2011
