Banana & Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Hey guys! Recently I have been getting back into baking. I love making these cupcakes as they are a bit more interesting than normal cupcakes and maybe a tad bit healthier (That's how i justify eating five of them in a row....) because of the bananas in them. They're so quick and easy to make and they're so yummy to eat in school for lunch.

100g butter
175g caster sugar
225g self raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
4 tablespoons milk
2 ripe bananas 
50g chocolate chips

How to make them:
Preheat the oven to 180oc/gas mark 4.
Cream your butter and sugar together for a few minutes. I like to use my kenwood mixer to do this but a hand mixer or a good ole wooden spoon will do the job too.
Add in the flour and the baking powder and mix until everything is mixed well.
Whisk in the eggs followed by the milk. You may need more or less milk, it all depends. Make sure that the mixture is nice and fluffy.
Mash the bananas in a separate bowl and add them with the chocolate into the mix.
Spoon the mixture into paper cases and bake them for about 25 minutes until well risen and golden brown. 

When they're done leave them cool on a wire rack.
Sometimes i like to melt some chocolate and make a chocolate drizzle over the top but a dusting of icing sugar is good too.

I hope ye enjoyed my blogpost,
