I'm not a raw banana lover by nature. I don't really like bananas as a fruit as they are rather filling. I do however love the smell and I like them stuffed in anything. I also love banana chips, Haribo banana sweets ... gosh bananas are actually really bad if they are not raw.
Bo does however like to eat bananas but he sometimes forgets about them and they will stay put and form a smell. It's then when I get a bit excited, when I find a bunch of overripe bananas in the top of the fruit rack. Overripe bananas means banana cakes.
- 4 ripe bananas
- 125 g butter
- 250 g caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 250 g plain flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
Preheat the oven to 180°. Fill a cupcake tray with cupcake liners (I've used a 12 cupcake tray and a 6 one)
Mash the bananas with a fork, set aside.
Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Then add the vanilla extract and mix.
Gradually add the flour and baking powder to the batter and beat well.
Add the mashed bananas to the mix.
Pour the mixture into the cupcake liners (3/4 full) and bake in the centre of the oven for 25-30 minutes, until skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
