Banana Bread Cupcakes

There is a new member in our household... I am happy to announce that I finally took the plunge and bought the Kitchenaid Artisan stand mixer. Can't tell you how thrilled I am. This wasn't my first recipe, Pizza dough was the first thing I made with this handy lil toy. Wasn't able to capture the final product so here is the second recipe made with my KA. 

I've had banana bread at many places and usually I find it to be a bit heavy and more of a bread like consistency. I know I know ... its bread and that's how it should taste but I am a fan of light and moist cupcakes so I decided to make cupcakes with this recipe and it turned out perfectly. Enjoy this melt in your mouth, moist banana bread cupcakes. Happy Eating!
