Nanny's Banana Cupcakes

My Nanny, Jenny, was born in 1900, and many of my memories of her are of our visits to her house playing outside and in the parks; and of us all sitting around the kitchen table eating and visiting.
She made the most deliciously scrumptious pickles I've had in my entire life !!- one visit mes soeurs and I ate 5 jars! ....my mouth still waters when thinking about them. :)
Although this has nothing to do with pickles (that will have to be another post), it is a recipe of Nanny's that is easy to make and delightfully scrumptious as well!
I've made these cupcakes a few times now and everytime they taste great and are difficult to stay away from! ....I've already eaten two.

Grocery list:
1 egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of margarine
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons of milk
1.5 cups of flour
2 bananas

1. Beat one egg and add vanilla;
2. In a different bowl cream margarine and sugar;
3. Add the beaten egg and vanilla and mix well;
4. In a different bowl mix baking soda and milk and then add to the other and mix well;
5. Mash bananas and then add to the mixture, mixing well;
6. Add flour and mix well.

Grease your muffin tins; or use muffin papers. Fill the tins 2/3 full - makes 12. FYI: If you want to double the batch, you would need to make 2 seperate batches.

Bake for 15 minutes @ 335. When you can place a toothpick into the center of the cupcake and it comes out clean - they are done!
