Banana Cupcake Recipe.

June 12, 2008

I decided to try making a cupcake instead of a muffin with my over-ripened bananas. I used this recipe but I made certain changes to it. 

  • I used butter instead of shortening
  • I used normal milk instead of buttermilk (since I’ve used butter in the first place)
  • I cut down the sugar by 1/4 cup
  • I did not use vanilla extract
  • I added almost 1/4 cup of Starbucks toffee nut syrup
It turned out very moist and cake-like, yummy. 🙂 However when you add the egg all at once to the mixture, do not be afraid if the mixture starts to curdle. Once you add the flour mixture in, it’ll all come together. Another tip is to use your electric mixer to give it a good mix after adding the flour mixture to the banana mixture.
I tried using these paper holders today, I found them a little too flimsy, bleah.
All mixed up, gooey in perfect deliciousness. 
The finished product.

What a joy it was to bake these, not all recipes are mix and mush and pour. 😉


Carrot Cupcakes With Starbucks Toffee Nut Syrup.

March 23, 2008

I decided to bake for a few of my friends from school and another dear friend of mine from church. Each of them got three mini carrot cupcakes in a brown bag. 🙂 Check out my previous post on the carrot cake here.

The cupcakes just before entering the oven.

The cupcakes after they leave the oven.

I then used a cake tester and poked holes in it and spread this delicious Starbucks toffee nut syrup over each cupcake.

And in the cupcakes went, into these brown bags for my friends.

I hope you guys enjoyed it! 😀
