Banana Chocolate Cupcake and Banana Bread

Banana cupcake is one goodie that I always bake at home to save overripe bananas. I always use the banana recipe which I’ve got from Yummy Magazine and if I have available chocolate chips at home, I added it on the recipe. 

Two weeks ago, I baked banana chocolate cupcake and loaf because my husband prefers loaf bread. I used the same recipe but my husband said, best cupcake ko daw ito. I told him, Hersheys kasi yung chocolate chips. It is really true that the taste improves if you use better ingredients. The cupcake was gone within 24 hrs. No doubt, type nila yung instant mix of  Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Brownies compared to my brownies from scratch. Hehehe!

Banana Bread

Just a while ago, my son keeps on asking me for food which we do not have in the fridge or in the pantry. He keeps on asking for ice cream, cake, chocolate and lastly bread but I could not give anything to him so I decided to bake banana bread. Banana bread is the easiest recipe that I could prepare.

It took me 45-50 minutes to bake the banana bread when I use the loaf pan. To make it more special, add some nuts and chocolate chips. My son was satisfied with his slice of banana bread and 1 piece of cupcake.

Banana Cupcake

For the last three days, my husband keeps on begging me to bake banana bread because it’s been two years since the last time I have baked a cake, cupcake or any food. Finally, I gave in last night so I baked a banana cupcake.

It is just a plain banana cupcake because I no longer have baking ingredients in my pantry. It was my first time to use a gas oven, it is not as complicated as I thought. So now, am thinking to buy baking ingredients again to enhance my baking skills and learn new recipes or enroll in baking school? (wish I have time).

I’ve got this recipe from Yummy magazine and I always use this every time I make a banana cupcake, in short tried and tested recipe.

1. In a bowl, mix together ½ cup butter at room temperature and 2/3 cup sugar.
2. Add 1 egg and 2 mashed bananas.
3. Mix in coffee (1 ½ tsp instant coffee dissolved in 1 ½ water)
4. Add 1 cup plus 2 tbsp flour, ½ tsp baking powder, ½ tsp baking soda, and ½ tsp salt.
5. Spoon the mixture into paper-lined muffin cups. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar (1tbsp sugar and mixed with ¼ tsp cinnamon.
6. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit about 20 to 25 minutes or till sides are lightly browned and top no longer look wet.
