Buttermilk Banana Cupcakes

    40 minutes

    These cupcakes will melt in your mouth when eaten fresh from the tray. They don't even need any topping in my opinion.

    • 1 3/4 cups (220g) plain flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda

    1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Line a cupcake tray with patty cups.
    2. Sift all the flour, bicarb soda, baking powder and salt into a bowl and mix together.
    3. In a large bowl beat the butter and vanilla until creamy. Gradually add sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.
    4. Add the eggs one at a time beating after each addition.
    5. Add a bit of milk; 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 patty cups 1/2 full as they rise quite well. Bake for about 20 minutes.
    7. Leave to cool in tray for 10 minutes.

    to make it a little bit healthier I used 1 cup oat meal and 3/4 cup of flour, and 100g of organic brown sugar  -  24 May 2012


    Used different ingredients. Delicious, I added a packet of chocolate chips. Wonderful in combination with the banana!  -  24 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
