Best quick cupcake recipe?

Hi everyone, I need a really great cupcake recipe I can whip up tomorrow afternoon. I have two kinds already (German chocolate and a not-very-good coconut variety that I'm not proud of) , but I think I need something without coconut and without nuts. Also preferably not chocolate, in case someone doesn't like any of those three things!

Any thoughts? Thanks!

  1. This is a famous one
    and I'd trust Ina Garten and Martha Stewart to make a nice cupcake too.

      Oh I have that book and I love her! thanks!

    2. If you like banana, this is amazing! I make it all of the time. It's a little sweeter than banana bread, but super moist and delicious. Easy too! Just pour into cupcake cups rather than a cake pan and check after baking for 16 minutes or so (they will not be done at 16 minutes, but you can get an idea of how much longer they will need to bake after you check them). This recipe yields about 26.
      Good luck!

        Excellent, I will bookmark for next time! I ended up making some carrot cake cupcakes from smitten kitchen, which were great!
