Choco Banana Muffins

Chocolate banana cup cakes were in my " to bake" list since a couple of weeks ago and now only have a chance to fulfil my wish of making them. These cup cakes are very popular among food blogger as I notice quite a number of them made these. Thanks HBS for sharing the recipe.

My cup cakes didn't look so good compare to hers (Didn't rise enough. I didn't do any changes to original recipe but something was not right I guess). However, the taste was great.

Here the recipe.

Ingredients (makes 14)
250g unsalted butter, room temp
200g caster sugar
5 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
300g all purpose flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
80g unsweetened cocoa powder
200ml fresh milk
300g very ripe banana flesh, mashed
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 ripe bananas, peeled and cut into 2 cm in length, dust in 1 tbsp of all purpose flour

  1. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Set aside
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together till light and fluffy.
  3. Add in one egg at a time , scrape down and mix well before adding another.
  4. Add vanilla extract and stir well.
  5. Fold add in the flour mixture ,alternate with milk into the egg mixture. Pls make sure to start with flour and end with flour.
  6. Add in the mashed bananas and stir well. Then sift in the cocoa powder and again blend well. Lastly stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Scoop the batter in to the muffin paper liners to about 3/4 full. Then insert a banana wedge into the middle of the muffin. Repeat till all the batter has been used.
  8. Bake in 170 degree preheated oven for 25 minutes or till the tester comes out clean.
