Chocolate Banana Cupcake

I got this recipe from


1 cup flour

3/4 cup sugar

1/3 cup cocoa powder

3/4 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

2 small mashed bananas

1 egg

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup canola oil

1/4 cup milk

3/4 tsp vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 180 degree C.

2. Mix all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt) in a big bowl.

3. In another bowl, mash 2 small bananas with a fork. It’s ok if there’s still lumps. Beat in 1 egg. Stir well.

4. Pour in water, canola oil, milk and vanilla. Mix well.

5. Pour wet ingredients mixture into dry ingredients. Mix well.

6. Pour batter into muffin pan. Bake for 20 mins. Test with a toothpick. If toothpick comes out clean, then they are done.

Super moist and soft. Banana lumps turn to be creamy in the middle.


Vanilla Cupcake

Original recipe:

In a large bowl mix flour (90g), baking soda (1 tsp), salt (1/8tsp, but if you use salted butter, you can delete salt).

Cream 60g butter till creamy and smooth. Add 70g sugar, mix them till light and fluffy. Then add in 2 small eggs (one at a time) and 1/2 tsp vanilla.

Add flour mixture into butter mixture. First, 1/3 flour mixture, 15g milk. Then 1/3 flour mixture, another 15 g milk. And last add in all the rest flour mixture.

Beat till flour all mix in.

Preheat oven to 180 degree C and bake for 17-20 mins.

These cupcakes are very moist.

I also made buttery frosting according to the video. Very creamy.
