These banana cupcakes are moist, and they aren't overly sweet. They're delicious with a vanilla glaze or cream cheese frosting.

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas, about 3 large ripe bananas
