Banana Cupcakes

Friday, January 11, 2013

As part of my fundraising efforts for Rod's Racing, I am going to be baking up a storm on the weekend. This weekend I am making Banana Cupcakes.  (Photo coming soon!)  I will add a frosting/icing of some sort and garnish with dried banana chip.

Banana Cupcakes from

Prep: 20 mins | Cook: 20 mins
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

(I suggest optional stir-in: walnuts, chocolate chips, or raisins)

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 separate 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. Stir in optional ingredients if you want to mix it up a bit.
7. 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 they're a bit wobbly! Taste good with peanut butter cream.
