Chocolate Banana muffins

I have baked this chocolate banana muffins few times due to the strong demand in my family especially my daughter, and I strongly recommend you to give it a try. This is really good, moist and full of chocolate and banana flavours, and I especially like the gem hide inside this muffin, a ripe banana..

This recipe was adapted from Honey Bee Sweets after I saw Reesekitchen strongly recommended. Thanks Bee Bee for kind sharing. I made little changes on the recipe as I change to salted butter instead of unsalted butter.

Your food looks so amazing, can't wait to try some Chinese dishes.

Kartoon said...

Dear Sonia,

May I know will your cup cakes stay on the cupcake case once out from oven?
Mine doesn't stick on the paper case.
I wonder why?

Tq in advance for your advice.

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Karyin, I can't remember this one whether stick on the paper case or not, but I noticed that if the cupcake case has wax apply on the wall, the cake tend to split from the case.

Hi Sonia, would like to ask is it possible to use the melted chocolate to replace with powder? Can you advise the portion? Thanks.
