Ingredients

For the Cupcakes

  • 2 Bananas
  • 140 g Caster Sugar
  • 55 g Butter softened
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3 tbsp Milk
  • 225 g Self-raising Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Power

For the Icing

Instructions

For the Cupcakes

  • Pre-heat your oven to 170°c (150°c for fan-assisted oven or Gas Mark 3) and line a muffin tray with twelve cupcake cases.
  • In a large bowl, mash the bananas before adding the butter and sugar. Mix well until combined.
  • In a separate bowl (or mug) whisk the egg, milk and vanilla before adding to the mixture.
  • Sift the flour and baking powder into the mixture and gently fold to form a batter.
  • Using an ice cream scoop, transfer the batter to your prepared cupcake cases, filling each to about 2/3 full.
  • Bake in your pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes, until risen, golden and a skewer inserted comes out clean.
  • Once cool enough to touch, transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

For the Icing

  • In a large bowl, mix the icing sugar, cream cheese and butter together until light and fluffy.
  • Once your cupcakes are completely cool, pipe or spread the icing on top of each.
  • Top with a dried banana chip is desired.
