After reading through a number of reviews, I feel it's important to make clear that these are not muffins, nor is this banana bread in a muffin tin--these are definitely cupcakes. Banana bread, of course, has a moist but dense crumb. These are pleasantly sweet, moist, light and fluffy little cakes. And very GOOD cupcakes at that! I used buttermilk powder for the buttermilk, which is always nice for times like this when only a small amount of buttermilk is called for. I skipped the frosting as I was craving a banana/chocolate combo and frosted them with "Chocolate Cream Frosting," also from this site. I tasted one before I even frosted them and had to restrain myself from having another--they were that delicious.
I have tried this recipe once with old bananas, nice and ripe. It really was the most amazing tasting little cakes i have ever had, and they were finished in no time, we honestly could not stop eating. That day, i only really had bananas in the house, hence i didnt have special shortening or buttermilk, so i just replaced them with butter and normal milk. And what a fantastic little cake it was. I didnt even have time to ice them, we ate them all before i could finish the icing. Très très Bon!!
Excellent! Every time I serve these, I have someone ask me for the recipe. I've made them with buttermilk and with a milk/vinegar combo when I don't have buttermilk on hand, and they always turn out great.
These were excellent! We are banana bread snobs and it got a thumbs-up from my husband (his mouth was full of cupcake). Like other reviewers, I used butter instead of shortening, regular milk with a little extra butter (melted) and cream cheese in the frosting. And, they did require a longer cooking time to be done.
wonderful recipe! i make it all the time for parties, family dinners, or just whenever i have overly ripe bananas on hand. The recipe is so simple, and everyone loves them! i use cream cheese frosting instead~ it really goes well with the banana
Excellent recipe!! very moist banana-ey cupcake, it's like a cross between muffin and cake. I do suggest you cut the sugar, i only use 1 and 1/4 cup and it's perfectly sweet. I also substitute half the milk in the icing for lemon juice (to balance all that sugar - giving it a fresher taste). It takes me 30mnts to fully cooked it. (15mnts at 175C and 15mnts at 150C) i turn down the temp because the top's already turned golden brown at the first 15mnts - don't wanna burnt it :)
These turned out pretty good, not really amazing but they taste fine. I don't know if I would make them again, they're kind of a mediocre variation of banana bread, only with frosting. But they were fun to try!
These were delicious, although I overbaked mine just a tad. I added some dark rum & cinnamon to the batter and some rum flavoring to a brown sugar icing that I found on another website. Very good flavor and a great recipe!
