I had ripe bananas to use up and my 10 yr old grandson, Cayden wanted cupcakes for his birthday. This match made in heaven, was my inspiration for these cupcakes. They turned out so good that he said he wanted them every year for his birthday. They may replace his other favorite, my Pumpkin Streusel cupcakes...or he may just love them the same. He loves all of grandmas baking. : D Enjoy!
