Banana Chocolate Cupcakes

Course: Dessert


  • 150 gr olive oil
  • 100 gr sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ripe bananas mushed
  • ½ tsp cinnamon or 1 ts vanilla essence I went for cinnamon
  • 250 gr self raising flour
  • 200 gr chocolate finely chopped (I used milk chocolate).


  • Preheat the oven on 190C (resistance oven) or 180C (fan oven)
  • Beat the the olive oil with sugar, using a mixer or you can use a whisk like I did (too bored to drag out the mixer)
  • Add in the eggs one-by-one whilst whisking for another couple of minutes.
  • Fold in the mashed bananas and sprinkle the cinnamon into the mixture.
  • Sieve the flour and gently mix it in the cake mixture.
  • Continue with the chocolate, always folding in gently with a spatula.
  • Transfer the mixture on a lined baking tin or muffin tin.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
