  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease 14 muffin cups.
  2. Lightly beat bananas and white sugar together in a bowl until smooth; add eggs, one at a time, until incorporated. Beat in vegetable oil until well blended, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in flour, baking soda, and buttermilk; mix well. Fold in pecans. Pour batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 20 to 30 minutes. Sprinkle cupcakes with confectioners' sugar.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you don't have buttermilk, mix 1 cup milk with 3 tablespoons lemon juice; let stand for 10 minutes. Use 3 tablespoons of mixture for recipe.

This is defiantly the thing to do with over ripe bananas! So good and so moist family gobbled it up way faster than they do banana bread. We did add a vanilla glaze to sweeten it up for dessert....
