As the end of school approaches, experienced parents know to expect an almost never ending assortment of events, parties, and other school functions. For many of these events, parents are asked to contribute baked goods or other treats.
This recipe was handed down from my grandmother, who made the recipe often. You can tell this because the recipe card is well worn and stained. A sure sign of a great recipe in my book! The cupcakes are basically a chocolate cupcake with a cream cheese topping.
Banana bread is a regular item on the menu at our house, mostly because my children love to eat bananas. However, it seems like either I buy too many bananas, or they get overly ripe before we have a chance to eat them. Instead of throwing away the overly ripe bananas, we just make banana bread. It’s a frugal way to use up those bananas, it’s easy to make, and the kids love it.
