Spongy Banana Cupcakes 香蕉海绵杯子蛋糕

I have many cupcake liners haven't used. I bought some and some given by my cooking & baking buddies.  I took out this floral design and I decided to bake them with banana sponge cake, they look so lovely! And this was a faster way to prepare cupcakes, I still use my prefer cold eggs method, don't need egg separation, and only need 5mins beating time, quick and good!




This time i didn't use the pisang emas to bake this cupcake, instead I use pisang berangan, it still tasted good! 

After beaten for 5mins (must beat over high speed), the volume of batter became high.

After added flour and oil, the batter reduced to half..

Fill them about 90% full. They will shrink after cool down but only a bit!

Jozelyn Ng said...

Hi, Sonia! Nice cup cake...I have a question here...everytime when I use this type of cup, I find that after a while, the cake will shrink and no longer stick to the liner...I am not sure I am the only one who have this problem or it is a common one....heeheehee...

Jozelyn,,I encounter the same problem here especially for sponge cake or chiffon cake base. I think this problem not due to you or me. The liners are this way, maybe due to manufacturer apply a layer of wax on the paper (even you can't feel the wax when you rub it), that's why the cake can't stick to it.

Baby Sumo said...

Hehe I also always buy cupcake liners cos they look pretty in the shop, then sometimes jus stash them away in the cpboard. Your muffin looks fluffy!

Lite Home Bake said...

I love how the liners give an extra country like feel to the banana cupcakes :)

Sonia, your banana cakes looked "pong pong" in those beautiful cupcake liners! I still remember that the 1st time I learned to bake banana cake by using your recipe, I also did it in cupcake liners. That time scared fat mah, made in small sizes but now "not fat not eating, hahaha!

Hi Sonia,
Juz tried your recepi but using self raising flour but end result the cupcake not spongy. Is it due to self raising flour? Thanks.

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Hi Anonymous, yes, just only self raising flour will not have sufficient rising effect since the batter is wet.

Hi, Sonia, can I turn on the fan while baking? What is the difference between fan and no fan. Tq. Brenda


Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Brenda, for this cupcake, it is not necessary to turn on the fan. Fan in the oven is to distribute heat evenly on the foods. Usually I use fan when baking cookies.

Hi Sonia,

May I know where can I get this cute and lovely cupcake liners? I bought the square polka dots cupcake liners from you before.

Thanks!
Evon from Singapore

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Hi Evon, I got these liners during Ho Chi Minh trip the other day. If I happen to see it here, will let you know ya.

Candice said...

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Candice, No Olive oil but canola oil is ok

Mindy said...

Hi Sonia, the cake turns out to be very moist and shrinks a lot. Looks like banana kuih 😣! I bake it in a cake pan instead of cupcakes. Please help.

Rachel Yee said...

Looks great

mrsallenby said...

The baking time can't be right. 45mins is from the old recipe which is a banana loaf. Surely the cupcakes bake a lot quicker? As amyguan saud, it will be black like charcoal after 45mins.

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

mrsallenby, you are right, i guess i didn't change baking time, should be around 25mins will do. I will revise the recipe. Thanks for pointing out the error.

Anonymous said...

can i use self raising flour to substitute baking powder and baking soda? thank you very much

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

anynoumous, should be ok to use self raising flour, just try out and see.

Yungs said...

Thanks Sonia for the great recipe! I baked several times in cupcakes and small loaf tin. All look good! But not sure why mine only makes about 7 cupcakes instead of 12...

Loges said...

Fantastic recipe! But for some reason my cupcakes looked more like muffin...the tops were cracked. Any idea why this happened?

Anonymous said...

Hi Sonia

I have tried this recipe which used to work. But recent tries my batter reduce by 2/3 after adding oil which resulted in a denser cake with no height.
Where could I go wrong? Kindly enlighten... thanks!

Shek Ling Lye said...

Hi, like your recipe so much. Do you think I can substitute the banana with durian since it's on season now.. Any advice. Thanks.

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Shek, yes, i think you can subsitute with durian. If you have tried, let me know the outcome.
