Ingredients
Cupcakes

  • 110g Unsalted Butter (Melted)
  • 170g Caster Sugar
  • 375g Self Raising Flour
  • 180ml Milk
  • 3 Eggs
  • 3 Bananas (Mashed)
  • 1tsp Baking Powder
  • 1tsp Cinamon

Caramel Centre

  • 170g Tin Condensed Milk
  • 45g Butter
  • 45g Dark Brown Soft Sugar
  • 15ml Milk

Icing

  • 75g Cream Cheese
  • 75g Unsalted Butter
  • 300g Icing Sugar
  • 1tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2tbsp Milk
  • Dried Banana Chips to Decorate (optional)

Method

  • Preheat your oven to 160C (fan oven)/180C/Gas Mark 4 and line a muffin tin with cases.
  • Melt the butter and allow to cool. Mash the bananas well.
  • Place all of the dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix thoroughly. In another bowl beat the eggs and add the milk, melted butter and mashed banana before stirring.
  • Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add the egg mixture. Mix well until you get a lumpy paste.
  • Spoon the cupcake mixture into the cases and place in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.
  • Allow the cupcakes to cool before coring them. Either use a cupcake corer or carefully use a knife to cut a circular hole in the centre of each¬†cupcake (be careful not to cut too deep).
  • In a small pan melt the butter and dark brown sugar together until the sugar dissolves. Add the condensed milk and stir continually on a high heat until it comes to the boil. Continue to stir for around a minute and the liquid becomes a thick golden caramel. Allow to cool (and slightly harden) for around ten minutes and then stir in¬†the milk.
  • Pipe the caramel into the middle of the cooled cupcakes before icing.
  • To make the icing beat together the butter and cream cheese to a paste like consistency. Gradually add the icing sugar and finally the vanilla extract and milk.
  • Ice the cupcakes however you please and optionally decorate with leftover caramel and dried banana chips.
