Banana cupcakes

I made these banana muffins the other day mainly because with Millie having chickenpox she wasn't eating very well and she is a huge fan of bananas.  Also because we had black bananas left in the fruit bowl and I hate wasting food.  We waste far too much in our house and I've made a conscious effort to waste less over the past few months.  These are great because they stay moist for days here's the reciepe:

125g stork
150g light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
4 ripe bananas
250g self raising flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Pre -heat the oven to 180C
1. whisk the stork and sugar together until pale and fluffy.
2. Beat the eggs and vanilla essence in a separate bowl then slowly add to the sugar mixture.
3. mash the bananas in a bowl then stir into the mixture.
4. sift in the flour and baking powder and mix in well.
5.spoon the mixture into the cases and bake for. 20-25 minutes

You can frost them if you want to but I didn't this time. This recipe does make 12 but we had already eaten some before I took a picture!
