Here's the recipe for banana cupcakes using an even #250 g of flour, sugar, and butter:

  • #250 g unsalted butter, softened
  • #4 x large eggs
  • #2 x ripe bananas, mashed
  • #2 x teaspoons vanilla extract
  • #2 x teaspoons baking powder
  • #1/2 x teaspoon salt
  • #120 ml milk


  1. Preheat your oven to #180°C (#350°F) and line a cupcake/muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the mashed bananas and vanilla extract.
