Banana and chocolate cupcakes

After the success of my last baking session, I decided to make some more cupcakes, this time going for a more adventurous banana and cinnamon cupcake with chocolate buttercream icing:

For the cupcake:
120g self raising flour
140g sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
a sprinkle of salt
80g butter
120ml whole milk
2 eggs
2 medium bananas mashed

For the icing:
100-150g icing sugar
100g butter
80g hot chocolate powder
20ml whole milk

Whisk together all the dry ingredients with the butter. Slowly pour in the milk, whisk well. Finally mix in the eggs and mashed banana. Dish up and bake at gas mark 3 for 20-25 minutes. Leave to cool before decorating with the chocolate buttercream.

The end result was delicious - light, spongy, moist and perfect as an afternoon snack!

Are you a fan of cupcakes? What's your favourite flavour?
