Chunky Chocolate and Banana Cupcakes
6 tbsp semi-skimmed (low-fat) milk
2/3 cup butter, melted
2 cups plain (all-purpose) flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup golden caster (superfine) sugar (we used regular granulated sugar)
5oz plain (semisweet) chocolate, cut into chunks (semisweet chocolate chips are fine too)
2 small bananas, mashed
1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Arrange 12 paper cases in a muffin tin.
2. In a small bowl, whisk the milk, eggs and melted butter together until combined.
3. Sift together the flour and baking powder into a separate bowl. Add the sugar, chocolate and bananas to the flour mixture.
4. Stir gently to combine, gradually stirring in the milk and egg mixture, but do not beat it. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases. Bake for about 20 minutes until the cakes are risen and golden. Allow to stand for 5 minutes, then turn out and leave to cool on a wire rack.
