I had some over-ripe bananas the other day so I set out to find something quick and easy to do with them. I ran across this recipe for Betty Crocker Banana Chocolate Chip Cupcakes on the Betty Crocker website and decided to give them a try.
The very first cook book I bought after I got married was by Betty Crocker, and I have been pleased with it for the most part. Didn’t mean to get off on a tangent, just reminiscing over here. There is nothing better than making a dish for the first time and it coming out good, and everyone you are serving it to likes it. On the other hand, I have made plenty of dishes that were a huge disappointment. It just comes with the territory, I suppose.
Anyhoo, I like making cakes and other baked goods from scratch, but I see nothing wrong with using packaged mixes sometimes. Especially this recipe, adding the bananas makes it taste like a homemade recipe. This is the first time I have mixed banana something with chocolate and I must say that is was a good match.
