Chocolate Chip Banana Cupcakes

This is just basic banana cake recipe with a little bit of chocolate chips – sure to please (almost) every one. You can decorate the cupcakes with some frosting or have them plain (just tart them up with colourful paper cases).

65 grams butter
¼ cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 very ripe banana, mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon chocolate chips
1 cup plain flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon hot milk

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C.

Line cupcake pan with paper cases (this recipe yields about 8).

Sift flour with baking powder and set aside.In the mixer, cream butter and sugar together. Add egg and beat to combine, add mashed banana and vanilla extract. Stir baking soda into the hot milk (I use microwave to heat the milk) then add to the creamed butter mixture. Stir in sifted flour. Beat well after each addition to combine.

Spoon the mixture into the cases to about half to the top, sprinkle with chocolate chips and then top with a little bit more cake batter to fill up to ¾ from the top.

Bake for about 20 to 25 minute or until nicely golden and cooked through.
