Banana Cupcakes

There is no chocolate in the house. No ice cream. This cold weather is creating cravings for fat. And, oh, some sugar. Yesterday, the low temperature was one degree above zero. And dry.

But there are cupcakes...Banana Cupcakes. And today, maybe some chocolate frosting to go on top.

If Martha Stewart had done nothing else, she's made some great cupcake recipes. Dayenu, as we say at Passover: It Would Have Been Enough.

(You can find 21 cupcake recipes on the website, for free. One important difference, at least in the cupcake territory, is that the cookbook tells you to fill the cupcake liner half or two-thirds full - very helpful so that the batter doesn't spill over the top while baking - and at least the Banana recipe online does not.)
