Anna-Banana Cupcakes

11 Aug

AB FinishedIt’s always sad saying goodbye and when one of my favourite families had to say goodbye recently, I was more than a little upset.  Especially because they are some of my most vocal followers here at Fudgingood.  It was made a little easier by the fact that I was given this recipe by the daughter as a birthday/goodbye present.  So when that lovely, young lady asked me to feature her banana cupcakes on my blog, I couldn’t refuse, especially when they taste as absolutely amazing as Anna’s cupcakes do.  Please see Anna’s delicious recipe below.

AB ing To make 12 cupcakes take:

  • 2 bananas
  • 150 gms caster sugar
  • 175 gm self-raising flour ( The astute among you will see I’ve used plain flour, if you’re out of self-raising use 175gm of plain flour and 2 tsps of baking powder)
  • 125gm butter
  • 1 egg
  • 90ml of milk

AC baking tinPreheat the oven to 180°C and line your baking tin with cupcake cases.

AB Butter and SugarCream the butter and sugar together in a bowl.  Melt the butter ever so slightly.  Add the egg and beat until well combined.

AB batterSift the flour and then add the milk and flour to the butter mix a little at a time and stir until smooth.

AB Mashed bananaMash the banana in a bowl and mix the banana into the batter.

Ab ready for the ovenPlace the batter in the cupcake cases and then bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes.

AB coolingOnce they’re baked allow them to cool completely and then decorate them as you wish.  I took Anna’s words to heart and decorated them with freshly whipped cream and a toffee sauce.  For the toffee sauce recipe see my recipe for peanut butter and banana pie

        Thanks for the plain flour/baking powder substitute – it’s hard to get effective self raising flour on the continent!
