  2. In a separate bowl sieve the flour and combine with the baking powder, bi-carbonate soda and salt
  3. Carefully stir in the dry ingredients and the mashed bananas into the butter, sugar and egg mixture. You might need to add a little milk if the batter is very dry.

Chocolate Frosting

Especially delicious on chocolate cupcakes and banana muffins.

  • 250g dark chocolate – if making the cupcakes for a children’s birthday, use good quality milk chocolate, such as Green & Black’s or Belgium milk chocolate
  • 250ml double cream or whipping cream.

To make ...

  1. Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place in a heatproof bowl. Heat the cream – be careful to avoid it boiling.
  2. Poor the cream over the chocolate pieces, leave to sit for 5 minutes before using a electric wish to stir the frosting into a shiny, even frosting.
  3. Smear a large helping on each cake or for a professional look, use a ‘bag’ to create small chocolate master pieces.
