Banana and White Chocolate Cupcakes
« on: May 07, 2014, 11:26:32 am »
I had a friend at the last minute saying she would be over for coffee! Oh No ....besides a couple of bananas which were well past their use by date, I didn't have anything to offer her to go with her coffee (and she was bringing her little girl), so I thought cupcakes would be ideal. So I am sharing with you this easy Banana Cupcake recipe. Needless to say they are nearly all gone now since my kids got home from school.
 
Banana and White Chocolate Cupcakes

Ingredients
120g butter
140g sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 egg
3 ripe bananas
200g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
60g milk
250g choc bits (either white or milk/dark chocolate)

1. Either grease muffin tray or line with patty pans.
2. Preheat oven to 180C.
3. Melt butter, sugar in mixing bowl at 100C for 2 mins at Speed 2.
4. Add bananas and blend at Speed 4 for 20 seconds.
5. Add egg and vanilla essence and mix at Speed 2 for 20 seconds.
6. Add flour, baking powder and milk and mix at Speed 2 for 20 seconds.
7. Scrape down the sides of bowl to mix in any flour.
8. Add choc bits and combine at Reverse Speed 4 for 15 seconds.
9. Fill muffin tray to with mixture and bake at 180C for 18-20 minutes.
10. When cooked place cupcakes on cooling rack.

I put icing on some of mine and dusted the rest with icing sugar.

JulieO - Whipped these up this morning, so quick and easy!  We all really liked them and my only tweak next time would be to halve the amount of choc chips! I also reduced the sugar a little too but I did sprinkle the tops with a pinch of raw sugar for a bit of crunch just before baking. I got 15 normal sized muffins from the mixture.

Cuilidh - I made these yesterday and they turned out really well ... only two left.  Usually DH is a bit reserved with his praise of sweet things, but he was very enthusiastic about these ones.  Definitely have to make them again!!!

It's great when you can whip something up for an emergency.  I'd be too slow, by the time my visitors arrived I'd still be pouring over my recipe books  :-))  Maybe I need to have some especially quick recipes for biscuits or cakes in a special section of my recipe box so that I could just grab one of them. Thanks TME.

Thanks TME, a very timely recipe as I have several frozen bananas I need to use up.  This should take care of some of them!

A great quick standby recipe to bookmark as most of us would have the ingredients in our store cupboards. :)
Thanks TME

Lovely Julie, I like the cupcake holders too - they're different.

Bananas and white chocolate sound very good together. I will try these.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
