  • Reduce speed to low. Mix mashed bananas, buttermilk, and vanilla in a bowl. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture in 3 additions, alternating with wet ingredients and ending with dry. Scrape sides of bowl. Stir pecans into batter. Divide batter among muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full.

  • Bake cupcakes until testers inserted into centers come out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool in tins on wire racks. (Unfrosted cupcakes will keep, covered, for up to 3 days.) Once cupcakes are cool, frost tops with caramel buttercream. Frosted cupcakes will keep, covered and refrigerated, for up to 2 days. Top with banana slices before serving.

I thought this was pretty good; you can make a 3 banana recipe if you make a "combine" with this recipe, as they are essentially the same: http://www.marthastewart.com/341918/banana-cake I put a few chocolate chips in the batter, and frosted with chocolate frosting...so good!

I added a drop of raspberry flavoring to the buttercream frosting and it was AMAZING. But the cupcakes are more like light muffins. But overall delicious

These are delicious. They seem a little like muffins to me, but more like cupcakes after they're frosted.

I got my CUPCAKES book yesterday at the book signing event in Madison, Connecticut. I tried this recipe today and they came out great! Thanks, Martha!
