Another favourite recipe here at Dolly Towers is the 'ABC cupcake' which was given to me, by another parent, as a fail-safe variation on Banana Bread. I can't imagine many children will be able to resist these, and they are moist enough to not need any topping, which keeps them healthy enough to be suitable for lunchboxes. Which is of course my thing at the mo'.
Why ABC? Apple, Banana and Choc Chip, of course!
110g self-raising flour
75g brown sugar
20g porridge oats
60ml apple juice
60ml vegetable oil
100g ripe banana, chopped (about one whole medium banana)
50g milk chocolate chips
Heat the oven to 170 degrees .
Line a muffin pan with paper cases.
Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Put the egg, milk, oil and juice in a jug, stir, then add to the dry mixture.
Add the choc chips and banana, mixing in roughly.
Spoon in the mixture to the cases.
Bake for around 20 mins, until well risen and golden.
Stand for 5 mins then transfer to wire rack.
Happy eating x
