I made them the other day for my class for my Birthday treat :)
Ingredients for a dozen of cupcakes (or 1 loaf):
- 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
- 1/3 cup melted butter (or margarine)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
- Strawberry jam (or any your favorite jam)
- Powdered sugar
Using fork, smash ripe bananas. Place them in the large bowl.
Melt butter (margarine) and add to bananas. Mix with fork.
Beat the egg(s), add the egg(s) to banana mix.
Add sugar, vanilla, baking soda, salt. Add the flour last, to mix.
Place cupcake liners in cupcake pan. Then put some batter in a zip lock bag.
Cut a little of a corner of the bag. Squeeze the bag filling the cup with batter on 2/3 .
Bake in the oven for 15-18 min. To check if the cupcakes are done, insert a wooden toothpick and if toothpick is dry, the banana bread is ready.
Cool the cupcakes on a rack.
Watch the video to see how to fill the cupcakes with jam.
My mom made stencils out of paper. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top of the cupcakes as shown.
I hope you enjoyed the recipe. Have fun making your cupcakes!!!
