  • Serves

    2 cups self-raising flour
    1/2 cup Chelsea Caster Sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    100g butter
    1 cup milk
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla essence
    1 cup (2 or 3) mashed bananas

    Chocolate Icing
    1 Tbsp softened butter (optional)
    1 1/2 cups Chelsea Chocolate Icing
    Hot water
    Optional - extra sliced bananas to decorate


    Turn the oven to 220°C and line a cupcake tray with paper cupcake cases. 

    Stir the flour, Chelsea Caster Sugar and salt together with a fork. Melt the butter then remove from the heat and add the milk, egg and vanilla. Beat well with a fork.

    Mash and measure the bananas. Stir them into the liquid mixture and mix well. Add to the dry mixture and fold everything together carefully until all the flour is dampened; stop before the mixture is smooth.

    Spoon mixture into the cases and bake for 12-15 minutes or until they spring back when pressed in the centre. Cool on a wire rack.

    When cool, decorate with Chelsea Chocolate Icing and top with banana slices (optional).

    Chocolate Icing
    Add butter to icing sugar. Add enough hot water to combine when mixed.

Followed to a tee (aside from cooking time, I baked at 190 on fan, and found it just needed 10mins longer) Result was yummo! Perfect amount of batter to fill my 6 (large muffin) silicon tray *made sure I buttered the bottom for extra precaution. Its a winner in my house, definitely will make again.

I see a lot of people saying the mix was too dense; not the case for me at all. Great taste however I think a little less baking soda and salt. However my family and I did enjoy them.

I have made this recipe several times and they are so delicious and beautiful. No fail recipe. If you love banana cake in any form you will love these. Find it hard to understand negative comments as recipe comes together easily, takes little time, and uses pantry ingredients. One of my favs :)

Not great. Was willing to try a recipe that was quite different (ie no baking soda and hot milk) - but dense/doughy, half stuck to case and very pale in colour compared with banana cakes etc. Had hoped would work well as mini alternative to banana cake but failed on most accounts. Good amount of batter as a silver lining!

Great bake! Quick and easy. But makes a lot of dishes to clean.

Yummy.... quick to make and so delicious

This was amazing & exactly what they say it was stated. I made banana peanut butter & jelly cupcakes using this recipe & it worked out wonderful! Thank you :)

Not great. A lot of the muffin stuck to the base of the cupcake case once it was baked and cooled. I liked that the recipe did not have too much sugar in it - but the muffin was quite dense and rather tasteless. A sort of non-event really.

Teaspoon cinnamon is great. Lovely with lemon icing...not so sweet

Muffins turned out soft :)

these are so good

So easy to make! Wish i'd put cinnamon in it (like previous comment).

Yummy and pretty easy to make... but mine have all stuck to the cases....??

Baking these cup cakes was part of our Mothers Day bonding with my 11yr old son, it was an easier enough recipe and method for him to follow..thanks and HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!

Great simple recipe. The banana keeps it moist for several days too. I find it makes more than 12 cupcakes if using standard size tins - otherwise they are very large and can be harder to ice.

Easy recipe. Light and fluffly.
Added chocolate chips instead of using icing. YUM!
