Banana Chocolate Cupcakes

Banana chocolate cupcake is one of the easiest cupcakes to make.  For me, baking this cupcake is less stress, less time and less sweat that is why I love it. 🙂  I got this easy-to-make cupcake here.

To make 12 regular-sized cupcakes, you need:

  • 1 cup (200 grams) granulated white sugar
  • 1/3 cup (35 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder (regular or Dutch-processed)
  • 1 cup (130 grams) All-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 1 medium sized banana)
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) warm water
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) milk
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) canola, corn, or vegetable oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

First, you need to preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and line 12-regular sized muffin cups with paper liners.  Then in a bowl, whisk together the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine together the egg, mashed banana, water, milk, oil and vanilla extract.

The batter would be quite thin.  You can use an ice cream scoop to put the batter in the muffin cups (just 3/4 full).  Then bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cupcake comes out clean.  Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack.  You can frost it also.  Here, I used buttercream frosting which I tinted with the yellow color.
