Beyond Simple Banana Cupcakes


With a growing and busy preteen at home, I am all about simple recipes. The recipes around the Web for banana bread or cake take many ingredients and I seldom have them. On hand, I had four ripe bananas and a white cake mix by Pillsbury. I spent $0.94 on the mix and $2.00 on the bananas. Add your favorite frosting and you're done.

Yield =  24 cupcakes

1 box white cake mix
4 bananas, ripe
3 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water, cold

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, begin by mashing the bananas with a fork very well. 
Using a wooden spoon, to the bananas mix in eggs, oil, and water. 
Lastly, slowly mix in cake mix a little at a time. 
Once all is combined well, use a mixer to mix at high speed for 2 minutes.
Place two tablespoons of the batter in each cupcake liner in the cupcake pan.
Bake for 19 to 23 minutes.

Enjoy!
