Banana Cupcakes, Muffins or Cake

This was my favorite cake for my birthday when I was a kid. It was between this and German chocolate cake. I make this as my banana muffins, as banana bread and as cake!!! Enjoy!!!!

Banana Cupcakes

2 1/3 cups flour
1 2/3 cups sugar...
1 1/2 cups overly ripe banana (about 3 medium)
2/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup buttermilk
3 eggs
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat all ingredients in large mixing bowl for about 30 seconds to blend. Then on med to high speed mix for 3 minutes. Pour into 24 cups for cupcakes for 18 to 20 minutes, a 9x13 prepared pan for 45 to 50 minutes, or 2 prepared loaf pans and bake 35 to 40 minutes.

Cream Cheese Frosting

1 brick softened cream cheese
2 cubes of butter softened (1 cup)
2 tsp vanilla
2 pounds of powdered sugar

Cream cream cheese and butter until well blended and slowly add powdered sugar slowly after about half of the powdered sugar is blended add the vanilla. Then continue to add the rest of the powdered sugar. You can spread onto the cupcakes that are cooled or put it in a piping bag and make them a bit fancier up to you!!!
