These treats are delicious with or without the vanilla frosting.

How to Make It

Step 1

Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs, banana, and vanilla, beating until blended.

Step 2

Stir together flour, soda, and salt. Add flour mixture to banana mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture; beat at low speed until blended after each addition. Stir in morsels.

Step 3

Place paper baking cups in muffin pans, and coat with cooking spray; spoon batter into pans, filling cups two-thirds full.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 17 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pans immediately, and cool on wire racks. Spread with frosting, if desired.

The batter tasted delicious, but the cupcakes over-rose and then fell, leaving huge craters in each. I was careful not to overfill each baking cup, and yet I was able to make 23 cupcakes, not the 18 specified in the recipe. All the chocolate chips sank to the bottom. I thought about trying to save the cupcakes by filling the craters with pudding or cream, but the cake was so airy, it just disintegrated when I tried to release it from the cupcake papers. I am an experienced baker, so it's very likely the recipe. I think the baking soda is the problem.
