Chocolate Banana Walnut Cupcakes

Baked these Banana Walnut Cupcakes to thank the Doctors & Nurses of St Andrew's Community Hospital for taking care of my MIL during her stay there. 

Bakes on 29 March 2015

I have been craving for banana cake and suddenly I had this crazy idea of blending chocolate with banana cake (even though I am not a chocolate lover). Amazingly, it was a great combination. The sweetness from the banana cake went so well with the slight bitterness from the chocolate. Glad that I did this experiment.


Cake Base
200g butter
180g castor sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
4 large eggs
2 1/2 tbsp milk
275g self-raising flour + 3/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
5 ripe bananas mashed
50g walnuts (crushed)
Whole Walnuts (Roasted)

Converture Chocolate
A little butter


1. Preheat oven at 180 Deg C and line paper fillers. 
2. Beat butter, vanilla essence and sugar together until light and creamy. Add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.
3. Stir in milk and banana. Continue to beat for another minute.
4. Fold in sifted self-raising flour with added bicarbonate of soda. Lastly add in walnuts and stir till combined.
5. Transfer batter to the prepared paper fillers and bake for 20-30 mins or until the cake is done.
6. For the chocolate ganache, just melt converture chocolate with a little butter in microwave. Spread on top of cupcakes and top with a whole walnuts. Fill some portion of mixture in piping bag and do a swirl on top of walnuts.
