Make banana flavoured cupcakes for your next party with this easy recipe for banana cupcakes with chocolate frosting.
I’ve got these delicious easy banana cupcakes for you today because we’re celebrating, a friend of mine; Meg from Sweet Twist of Blogging is having a baby! I’ve mentioned my favourite group of blogging ladies before, (we’ve been getting together on a pretty regular basis for the past year or so) and we wanted to do something fun and surprise Meg with a virtual baby shower. Meg actually had us all over to her place for a potluck during the winter (which seems like eons ago now) and I got to meet her adorable, smart daughter and I know this next little one is going to be just as sweet and wonderful. We’ve had this in the works for a while, and I was actually planning on writing about how I’d never been to a baby shower before, but it’s funny the way things happen because I ended up going to my first baby shower last weekend. So I’m pretty much a baby shower expert now. Just kidding.
Now let’s talk about these banana cupcakes for a second. Why did I go with banana flavour when vanilla cupcakes are such a foolproof classic? I went with banana flavour because I remember Meg mentioning that she was craving banana like crazy. These banana cupcakes are light and fluffy and get the banana flavour from three mashed bananas and a touch of cinnamon (we all know that cinnamon and bananas go together perfectly). These cupcakes are made of all purpose flour and a combination of brown sugar and white sugar – I used a combination because I like the slightly caramel undertones from the brown sugar. You’ll have to try out this recipe for yourself and let me know what you think.
In the meantime, be sure to check out everyone’s wonderful posts for Meg’s baby shower:
