Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Stir in 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips in place of the toffee bits, or to be really indulgent, toss in a half cup of both!
To ripen bananas, keep them uncovered at room temperature. To speed the process, place bananas in a perforated brown paper bag with a ripe apple!
If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
