How to Make Banana Cupcakes


  1. Preheat Oven 350 degrees:

    For the Topping;

    In a food processor combine the chocolate chip cookies, butter, flour and brown sugar. Process until crumbs are formed; then set aside while preparing the cup cakes.

    For the Cup Cakes:

    In a mix master combine the bananas, butter, vanilla, sugar and eggs. Mix until smooth.

    In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.

    While the mix master is on low; slowly add the dry ingredients to the mix master.

    Butter the cup cake tins or use the cup cake holders.

    Pour the batter into the cup cake tins; then generously top the cup cakes. You may use a knife to gently swirl the topping a little into the batter and then top some more.

    Bake 20 – 25 minutes or until a toothpick test comes out clean.
