♥ Molten Cheese-centered Chocolate Banana Cupcakes with Rocky-Fruit Topping ♥




Adapted from Easy Cupcakes (Love Food)
Makes 4-6 cupcakes
You'll need:

Chocolate Banana Cupcake
2 oz vegetable shortening/unsalted butter, soften
2 oz caster sugar
1 large egg yolk
3 oz self-raising flour
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
2 tablespoons warm water
1/2 riped banana, mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon banana flavouring

Cheese Center
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
8 oz cream cheese
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar

Rocky-Fruit Topping
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup mixed nuts and fruits (I used cashew, almond, hazelnut, saltana,raisin)

How to make the cheese mixture:
  1. In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese, sugar, egg by hand and fold in chocolate chips until well combined. Set aside.
How to make the cupcakes:
  1. Preheat the oven to 190 C. Put 8 paper cupcake cases in muffin tray.
  2. Put the vegetable shortening, sugar, egg, flour, cocoa powder, warm water, mashed banana, vanilla and banana flavouring in a large bowl and using an electric hand whisk, beat together until smooth.
  3. Spoon half of the mixture into the paper cases, using a teaspoon or icecream scoop.
  4. Using a teaspoon, drop 1 teaspoon of cheese mixture into the center of each cupcake, then spoon the remaining cake mixture on top.
  5. Bake the cupcakes in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until well risen and springy to the touch.
  6. Leave the cupcakes to cool before frosting them.
Tips: You may want to line double cupcake cases for each cupcake in the muffin tray. Otherwise, like what I did, change the cases after cooling.

How to make the rocky-fruit topping:
  1. Melt the chocolate chips in microwave oven for 30 minutes, stir well.
  2. Toss in the mixed nuts and fruits, let cool.
  3. Drop 1 big spoon of toppings on each cupcake.
  4. Let cool in room temperature until set.
With all my love <3
