Banana Cupcake Recipe

A friend of mine gave me a bunch of giant bananas the other day, and we just couldn't eat them fast enough.

With my mother's motto of "Never throw food away!" stuck in my head, I decided to look for an easy cupcake recipe online. I found two that looked easy to prepare (in keeping with my site idea), so after some tweaking, here is a recipe that you can rely on!

Banana Cupcake Recipe


  • 1/2 cup margerine, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (around 3 medium sized bananas)
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups self-rising flour


    Preheat oven to 350°F. Line eighteen 2 1/2 inch muffin pan cups with fluted paper liners.

    In a large mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugar. Add the eggs, vanilla, bananas and buttermilk..

    Add the flour mixture 1/2 cup at a time and mix thoroughly.

    Spoon the batter into muffin pan cups. Bake 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cupcakes comes out clean. Immediately remove cupcakes from the pans and cool compleely on wire rack.

    When the cupcakes are cool, frost with your favorite icing. Here's our recipe for chocolate frosting.
