Best Banana Cupcake Recipe

Banana Cupcake

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.

  6. For a cake bake it in a 20cm round pan on 170 C (325 F) for about 45 mins in a convection oven.
  7. 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.

I got the recipe from one of my flickr friends Kathryn and I am sure that she dont mind me sharing it with you ;-)

    Yes, it’s amazing how differently a cupcake can taste. It’s so more mushy on the second day :-)
