Banana and Raisin Cupcakes

I have a confession.
I HATE bananas! Therefore I cannot tell you personally whether or not these cupcakes taste good. But my husband has tried them and says they are nice.

I had half a bowl of basic cake mixture left after making my scrummy Chocolate Apple Cupcakes and looked at our fruit bowl. In it sat 2 Bananas and a bag pack of Raisins. So these seemed a great idea to use as flavouring for my next cupcakes.

So, basic cake mix again if you missed it before [if only making 12 cupcakes half the mixture to 125g and 2 eggs]
250g butter
250g caster sugar
Mix those together in a bowl then add
250g self-raising flour
4 free range eggs
(Add one egg at a time, each time folding in some of the flour)

Half of the mixture was left in the bowl and to the I added a sliced and chopped banana. I stirred this round and mashed it as much as I could but also left some larger pieces too. Then I added a handful of raisins. This was mixed and then spooned into cake cases and placed in a preheated oven, 180degrees, for 24 minutes.

These smelt delicious and did look nice. After they had cooled down I made my husband try one and he assured me that it tasted beautiful. They were really easy to make and a great way to use up bananas which are going too brown!
