Banana Cupcakes

This is a great recipe for banana cupcakes, quick and easy, and the recipe can be adapted for a slice tin sized cake too. Nice healthier (kinda) cake option.

Banana Cupcakes

Prep time: 

Cook time: 

Total time: 

Serves: 16

  • 125g softened butter or margarine
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed banana. I use one & a half bananas. Other half for decoration
  • 1½ cup self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp bicarb soda
  • ⅓ cup milk
  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla until fluffy.
  2. Beat in eggs one at a time.
  3. Add banana and beat.
  4. Add flour, cinnamon, bicarb soda and milk into the mix and stir gently.
  5. Spoon mixture into (12 large or 24 small) cupcake patties, and to finish off slice the remaining banana very thinly and place carefully on top of the cakes.
  6. Alternatively, use a well greased slice tin, lining the bottom of the pan with the sliced banana to flip over as the top when done.
  7. Cup cakes take 18-20 minutes, the slice not much longer. Keep an eye on it and when it is firm on top it’s ready.
