Banana Cup Cakes

I used to only make banana bread, and I’m told my banana bread is A-mazing!  But I’ve made it so much the kids are getting sick of it! So I decided to look up a new recipe.  This one is Kid Tested and approved as even better than my banana bread.


Banana Cupcakes
1½ Cup all purpose flour
¾ Cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
3 mashed bananas
¼ Cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg, lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line muffin tin with wrappers, set aside.

In a large bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk to combine. Set aside.
In a medium sized bowl, add in the remaining ingredients. Stir to combine, add the wet mixture to the dry and stir until just combined and no dry spots.

Divide the batter among the 12 cupcakes wrappers, about ⅔ of the way full. Bake for 17-19 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out mostly clean.


I’ll have to make these when Tristan is home next and see if he can taste the baking soda, he is super picky about the amount of baking soda in recipes, I normally cut what ever the recipe asks for in half so that he can’t taste it.

As always the recipe I found was on pinterest (honestly how did people survive before the internet… I don’t remember) You can find the recipe with a brown sugar icing My kids liked it without the icing just fine if you don’t have time to make the icing.. or if you were just lazy that day like I was…
