Banana and orange cupcake


This is adapted from my favorite banana bread recipe. But I have been baking them as cupcakes cos it takes much shorter time especially if I wanted to make something quick but delicious for breakfast. This recipe (2/3th of the original recipe) makes about 5-6 cupcakes, just enough for our breakfast and a couple of extra ones for the little fella to bring over to his nanny's for snacks later on in the day.
Here's the recipe:
Ingredients: *2 eggs (at room temp)
*50g brown sugar (original was 100g)
*1 ripe banana and 1 sweet orange (chopped into small pieces)
*100g top Flour (or plain flour/superlite flour/cake flour)
*1/2 tsp baking powder (original recipe had baking soda, I omitted it)
*60g grapeseed oil (or virgin coconut oil)
*1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
Topping (Optional)
*1tsp of cinnamon and 2tsp of brown sugar. Combine and sprinkle on top of cupcake batter prior to baking, OR 
*Rolled oat, OR

  1. Preheat oven to 160deg C. 
  2. Sieve flour and baking powder together. Set aside.
  3. Whisk eggs till creamy stage. Whisk in chopped banana and orange, and brown sugar.
  4. Fold in flour and mix well with spatula.
  5. Add in oil and mix well.
  6. Spoon batter into cupcake liner. Decorate with orange slices or topping (see above).
  7. Bake for 20min, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. 
 I have also baked this recipe with 1 ripe banana and about 2tbsp blueberries.
