Banana Chocolate Cupcake ~ 香蕉巧克力蛋糕



These banana chocolate cupcakes are moist and delicious which are very suitable for tea or a party gathering.   Just mix the wet ingredients in a one bowl and the dry ingredients in another, mix them up and you're done.  Another plus point is that oil is used instead of butter.  Oil makes the cupcakes tender that stores well and also these cuppies can be refrigerated and still stay soft.
