Banana and Chocolate Rice Cupcakes

Banana and Chocolate rice cupcakes

My 1st post in Nov2011 is dedicated to Aspiring Bakers #13: Enjoy Cupcakes! (November 2011). Lets come and enjoy this yummy cupcake!



Banana and Chocolate rice cupcakes



This cupcake was inspired by a cake demo at the Kenwood counter at HOMEDEC (Home Decoration exhibition) when i was looking for a hand blender. They just add chocolate rice in a normal butter cake, the taste was good and I quickly asked for the recipe. And my husband was suggested me to add banana if i will bake this at home.

So, is your chocolate rice the same thing I call chocolate sprinkles here in the states? Or is this something entirely different? Thanks again!

Anonymous said...

Hi Sonia,
Good morning, thank you so much for your reply, ya, I will also use the hand mixer cos volume too little.

Hi Sonia,

May I ask if i am not adding bananas, just butter
Cupcakes n choc rice, do i need to add anything else to substitute the 80g banana? Tks!

All your bakes look soooo yummy!

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Vivian, I think not much difference, but I like to use SR flour and normal paper liner in muffin tin as I found it got nice and neat cupcake .

CT, you can substitute with 2tbsp of milk.
