This is a great recipe. Most banana cupcake recipes I've tried are a little dense and muffin/bread like. This one is fluffy, soft and very tasty. I have to admit that I was slightly skeptical about using the full 2 tsp of baking soda (it seemed a little much for the amounts of the other ingredients) but I did use the full 2 tsp and even though the batter tasted a little soda-y, the final product did not. It was perfect. I did make a couple of minor changes in that I did not use the pecans at all and I baked these at 325 degrees instead of 300. I got 18 regular sized cupcakes out of this recipe.

I haven't tried this recipe but the cook that responded with "loved the recipe, but I changed it a bit" she changed the entire recipe! What's the point of responding, post your own recipe. Kudos to Mari I'm enough of a cook to know a good recipe when I see it. We'll be making them tomorrow after the 5k with the bruised bananas. Thanks!!

This recipe came out so fluffy! Best version of banana bread I've ever had, and I've tried a LOT. i would've given it five stars except that I modified it quite a bit. Instead of three bananas I only used two and added a box of banana pudding mix. Since the pudding was drier than a banana would be I took out about a quarter cup of flour. I also added a tablespoon of vanilla and instead of buttermilk I used Mexican crema. I love experimenting and this time I think it really paid off!
