banana cupcakes

I have planned in some 'blog catch-up' time so here goes.

It was the Early Years' turn to bring cakes to school for the regular cake stall, and here is our offering : courtesy of some soft bananas, buttery icing, sprinkles and writing tubes.
Very easy recipe from www.cooks.com. I added a bit too much butter... it said a cup, I plopped 250gms in. I really should have checked somewhere!
Banana Cupcakes
1 c. butter
1c. sugar
1 beaten egg
1 c. mashed banana
Sift together, then add to first mix and beat well
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
Fill lined and greased cupcake tins 2/3 full batter. Bake at 180 C for 15 - 20 mins. Makes 14 large cupcakes.
This is a very moist recipe (obviously especially if you are as generous with the butter as I was!)
And a great way to use those sad bruised bananas in the fruit bowl. If you have some lurking but not the time to bake, then throw said bananas into the bottom of the freezer for when the need arises. Thaw them out in a bowl as they go rather mushy... but even sweeter in the freezer.
