  8. Meanwhile, we prepare and place the paper capsules in the holes of a cupcake tray or in silicone molds.
  9. With this amount I have 12 pieces in muffin capsules or muffins (those that come labeled as muffin capsules are usually a little larger).

Tips for some yummy banana muffins

  • As the resulting dough from this banana cupcake recipe is very moist. It is not necessary to store it in an airtight container as it does not harden or dry easily. The banana provides a lot of moisture and helps them not to dry quickly.
  • It is important that the paper capsules tuck them into some rigid mold. If not with the weight of the dough, the capsules will deform and the cupcakes will have a “scattered” shape.
  • If the bananas you use are not overripe, it may not be enough to squash them with your fork. Maybe you have to crush them with the mixer.
  • The dough is very thick and cannot be poured directly from the bowl. The most comfortable way to fill the capsules is to use a spoon. With a tablespoon well filled more or less fill the molds as necessary.
  • If you want to add more banana flavor, you can find flavorings of that flavor in specialized stores. They even sell banana syrups that are used in cocktails and that will give it more flavor.
  • Although they hold up quite well during the day in a protected place, if you want your cupcakes to last longer. In the preparation add about 50 ml. of buttermilk .
