Banana Cupcakes


February 19, 2008 by Erica

Top these with Honey-Cinnamon Frosting.

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour (7.5 oz)
¾ cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 ½ cups mashed bananas (about 4 ripe bananas)
2 large eggs
½ tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a standard 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Make a well in center of flour mixture. In well, mix together butter, mashed bananas, eggs, and vanilla. Stir to incorporate flour mixture (do not overmix). Dividing evenly, spoon batter into muffin cups.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of a cupcake comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pan; cool completely on a wire rack. Spread tops with frosting. Just before serving, peel and slice banana into rounds, and place one on each cupcake, if desired.
