Recipe: Banana Cupcakes

 

I had some very blackened bananas to use up but didn’t want to make the old favourite of banana bread so did a quick google. I realised I could make a basic cupcake recipe and simply add in the mashed bananas. As it is a straightforward recipe with basic methods such as sieving, breaking and beating eggs, creaming in and mashing, I decided to try and experiment and give my son a chance to do it himself. My 7 year old did all the work on these on his own, weighing, measuring, mixing etc. I just supervised and did the oven bits. He was thrilled with himself!
