Fresh Banana Cupcakes

Real homemade batter that you can whip up in your food processor or mixer!  Preheat over to 350.
8 tbsp butter (1stick)   +   1 1/2 Cp sugar              Blend until thoroughly mixed
3 VERY ripe bananas (my were almost black)        add in chunks-blend til smooth
2 Eggs                                                                   add after bananas are blended
1/2 Cp buttermilk    +   1/2 tsp baking soda           blend together
2 Cp all-purpose flour  +  1/2 tsp baking powder  +  1/4 tsp salt     blend together

Add 1/3 of the flour mixture and pulse (mixture will be dry), then add 1/3 of the buttermilk mixture to moisten.  Repeat.  Mix just until smooth.

Spoon batter into cupcake pans sprayed and fitted with paper liners.  Check with a toothpick after 15 minutes.  Mine were still very moist so I cooked them almost 5 additional minutes.   Even though the baking time was "fussy" these cupcakes are the BOMB!

I made chocolate frosting but fresh whipped cream would be over the top with these cupcakes too.
