  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease the 12 cupcake tin with melted butter or nonstick spray.
  2. Stiff up the flour in a medium bowl, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon all together; Whisk it up until fully incorporated.
  3. For the best and easy way to melt your chocolate: Boil ½ cup milk in a medium-sized stainless pot. And in a medium-sized heatproof bowl put in the easy to melt chocolate chip. Turn it off the heat; Immediately pour the boiling milk over the bowl stir until smooth and fully combined.
  4. In another bowl stir in the peeled ripe bananas, make sure it's overripe for much sweet taste, and mash it with a fork or you can use your mixer on medium speed to break it into small chunks. Combine white sugar, brown sugar (but instead brown sugar use Muscovado) this is available in any grocery store. It is most nutritionally richer than the usual sugar we use daily and might be expensive for some of us but will transform banana muffin into a light, balanced taste and an extra natural color for the chocolate banana cupcake; You wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. It’s even better. Then add beat in eggs, whisk it carefully(one at a time) into the bowl, vanilla extract; When completely incorporated add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in three additions just like what’s in the video. Last but not the least, toss in some chocolate chips for the finale.
  5. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared 12 cupcake tin with cupcake liner(optional) and bake it up into the oven for 30 - 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Remove from the oven, transfer it to a wire rack, and let it cool completely before adding any frosting. Topped it with nuts, chocolate chip, walnuts if desired, and for best result.
  7. Let it bake for 25 - 35 minutes. Plus another 10 minutes cooling time.

The Baking process could take longer than 30-35 minutes depending on your type of oven you are using.

  • Keep it refrigerated to last up to 4 days
  • If you desired more topping, feel free to add your all-time favorite frosting, just like cream cheese frosting and other extra sweets.

Happy baking!

How To Make Extra Moist Cupcake

  • There are a few different ways to guarantee your cake is flavorfully moist. To start with, ensure your ingredients are at room temperature before starting. Second, abstain from overbeating your dry ingredients as you add them to the batter. Finally, include the milk alternately with the dry ingredients, in 2-3 additions.

How Will You Know If The Cake Is Cooked?

  • You will easily notice your cake is done when either a toothpick or cake analyzer inserted into the middle comes out clean and with no crumbs. Test the cake at the minimum heating time. If the toothpick has batter or moist crumbs on it, keep preparing and test again at the most extreme heating time or 210 C.

Goes well with toppings on top

  • Cream cheese Frosting
  • Nuts
  • Walnuts
  • Whipped cream with chocolate chips or fresh fruits
