Banana + Carrot Cupcakes

My little one asked for cupcakes this morning, and so Mummy has to bake today.

Added more bananas (250g) and carrots (50g) and reduced sugar to 80g (40g caster sugar, 40g brown sugar). I added the chocolate chips on top this time round.

I’m glad he liked my cakes, well, most of the times. Much better than buying store-made ones because I can add carrot shreds and reduce the sugar amount. He has a good appetite but like a lot of kids, doesn’t eat his vege, so Mummy has to think of ways to hide the vege in the food he eats.

Will try apple and zucchini next time but will need to reduce the water content, or the batter will be too wet.

Banana Cupcake

I had some over riped bananas to use up but was too lazy to make a chiffon cake. Another random search for a light banana cupcake recipe and it pointed me to this recipe from Nasi Lemak Lover. Somehow, I always ended up using this blogger’s recipes because they always work for me.

This recipe only uses 1 mixing bowl and no butter, just vegetable oil. It is indeed light but moist, so much so that the mini chocolate chips I added all sank to the bottom *Dope*. I think it still tastes a tad too sweet, so may need to reduce the amount of sugar next time as the bananas are already sweet.

Cupcakes again

Modified from the previous recipe, left out the cheese and added orange zest with cranberries sprinkled on top. Got too greedy and tried to make 8 cups instead of the previous 9. And then they overflowed.

I finally got a oven thermometer, and my oven is working well leh… Cannot blame my oven for my substandard skills anymore.

Still trying hard to use up my stash of ingredients…
