Two wings lift a person up from earthy concerns: simplicity and purity. Simplicity should be in intention, purity in feelings. Simplicity reaches out after God, purity catches hold and tastes. ~ Thomas A’Kempis

"The Yummiest Banana Cupcakes *

Just sharing my recipe for the yummiest, easiest banana cupcakes in the world. I hope you'll try them :0)


125g butter or margerine
2 eggs
1 C sugar
1 t Baking Powder
1 t Baking Soda
2 T hot milk (microwave it)
2 ripe bananas - mashed
1 3/4 Cups of plain cake flour
1 - 2 t vanilla essence

1. Beat the soft butter or margerine with the sugar and vanilla, until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time and beat in well. Add the mashed banana. Dissolve the soda in  the hot milk and add to the mixture. Sift dry ingredients (although I never do, I just throw it all in), and mix on a low speed till just combined. Spoon into paper cups placed inside the muffin tray, and bake at 180 C for 15 - 18 minutes (until risen and golden).

2. I ice them with Betty Crockers vanilla icing..mmmm...and then sprinkle over some thread coconut. - Enjoy - Makes 1 Dozen
I'm taking these ones to share with some friends who've just moved house. I think they'll enjoy them :0)
