During the transfer to a new web host last year, one post did not make it through. It was the post about the best banana cupcakes. So I thought I would write a new post about them (photo is old) simply because they are so good and because if you love a good banana cupcake or cake? then you should try out this recipe. Be sure to add a nice chocolate frosting or glaze on top.
I got the recipe from one of my flickr friends Kathryn and I am sure that she dont mind me sharing it with you
Banana cake or cupcakes:
125g (4oz + 1 tbsp) butter
175g (6oz) sugar
2 large mashed ripe bananas
1 tsp Baking soda
2 Tbsp boiling milk
1 tsp baking powder
225g (8oz) flour
Cream butter & sugar till light and fluffy.
Add eggs one at a time.
Mix in mashed bananas.
Add baking soda that has been dissolved in hot milk.
Lastly mix in sifted flour & baking powder. Dont overbeat the batter.
For a cake bake it in a 20cm round pan on 170 C (325 F) for about 45 mins in a convection oven.
This mixture will produce around 18 standard size cupcakes and they are baked at 170 C (325 F) for approx 18-25 mins. You want them to be light golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
Note: They are even better the next day. If you can wait that long
