I have to admit that I have never made a vegan dessert before. With recipes that call for butter and egg substitutes, I was afraid of sacrificing taste and texture to make a vegan dessert. However, when making cupcakes for a vegan friend, I started exploring new blogs with vegan recipes that don't require any substitutes. In fact, these banana cupcakes can be made with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry! I love baking with banana, and these cupcakes were sweet and moist - perfect for all of your vegan and non-vegan friends to enjoy.
