Banana Cupcakes

READY IN: 28mins




  • Preheat oven to 350°F Line standard muffin tins with large paper liners.
  • Whisk together cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, then set aside. In a separate bowl, mash the bananas well then stir in the lemon juice. To the banana mixture, whisk in the buttermilk and vanilla.
  • With an electric mixer on medium high speed, cream the buttter and brown sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until each is incorporated. Add flour fixture in two batches, alternating with banana mixture, and beating until just combined after each. Stir in chocolate chips if using.
  • Divide batter evenly among lined cups using an ice cream scoop, filling each 3/4 quarters full. Bake, rotating tins halfway through, until a cake tester inserted in centres comes out clean, between 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer tins to wire racks to cool completely before removing cupcakes.
  • Serve plain or frost with the icing of your choice.
