Everybody who's said that these are more like muffins and banana bread are way off mark. These are truly light, airy, and really delicious cupcakes and do stay true to everything that Wanda promises. I increased recipe to give 24 cupcakes and managed 30 out of them. I did some of these with metread's 'Cream Cheese Frosting with Brown Butter & Bourbon' recipe, and they were OUT OF THE WORLD. I did the rest with my own proportions of butter,confectioner's sugar and milk and a drop of red colour to make pink ribbons on the cupcakes for breast cancer awareness. These are splendid without frosting. And perhaps if you do want to frost them, you might consider cutting the sugar in the cupcakes a wee bit. P.S: I realised after putting these in the oven to bake, that I'd used butter instead of shortening....but no harm done whatsoever. =) Also, these took me between 15-18 minutes baing time. Thank you Wanda for sharing. This one is a definite keeper. =) P.P.S: Next time, I will cut the sugar down to 1 cup coz ripe bananas tend to lend a lot of sweetness too. (Cut back refers to original recipe for 18 cupcakes and not my increased version).
