Easy Banana “Cupcakes”

Cooking With Kids

Call anything a “cupcake” and my three-year-old charge will eat it. Instead of throwing out a few over ripe bananas, use the extra sweet fruit to make banana muffins. Over ripe bananas are extra sweet so there is no need to add much sugar to our simple banana muffin recipe below. Just make the muffins in cupcake liners and the kids will be excited to make, eat, and share their banana cupcakes.

You Will Need:

1/2 Cup Butter (softened, don’t use microwave to soften butter)
1 Cup Banana, mashed (about two bananas)
1 Cup Sugar
1 Egg, beaten
1-1/2 Cup Flour
1/4 teaspoon Salt


1. Mix all of the ingredients.
2. Fill each muffin tin until half full.
3. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes.
