Banoffe Cupcake Recipe


Thanks to those who asked for this recipe. It came from Annie Bell's Gorgeous Cakes - and the title is so true. Just really a basic sponge with some banana and cinnamon chucked in, but extremely delicious. Here we go:
Cakes (24)
125g unsalted butter
125 g golden caster sugar
3 eggs
3 tablespoons milk
250g Self raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 heaped teaspoon cinnamon
pinch salt
3 mashed bananas

Topping
Jar of dulce de leche
optional chocolate curls or hearts

Oven 190 C, fan oven 170 c, gas mark 5

Cream butter and sugar
add eggs one at a time then milk. (It will probably curdle but it is ok)
Sift and add dry ingredients
Stir in bananas

Fill paper cases about two thirds full
Bake for about 25 mins until risen and golden and leave to cool

Smooth a tsp of dulce de leche over the top then decorate with chocolate curls or hearts is required.
I just used a veg peeler on a couple of squares of plain chocolate.

Eat at least 2 - maybe 3 right away, before your teenage son, his friend and your husband notice them.
