Chocolate Banana Muffins

I like banana john likes chocolate so we made these yesterday. Its a fairly foolproof recipe you can swap banana  for brambles or pears and dark chocolate for white chocolate or walnuts. I like them warm straight out the oven. but in order to get john to eat his bananas we put icing on them and have them with a cup of tea.

Choc banana muffins turned cupcakes.
125 g unsalted butter, at room temperature.
250g caster sugar.
2 eggs.
1 tsp vanilla extract.
250g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
4 bananas mashed
175g of dark chocolate
(its best to use the good stuff for this
recipe we like green and blacks trust me you'll taste the difference)  

pre heat your oven to 160 degrees

cream your butter and sugar, it will take about 3 mins with an electric mixer and you will notice it going pale thats what you want.

add your eggs and vanilla and continue beating, sift in your flour and baking powder and beat briefly until all combined.

mash up your bananas and roughly cut  the chocolate into small bitts, then add them to your mixture with a wooden spoon.

spoon the mixture into your muffin cases and bake for 25 mins.

(i have never used an icing recipe - its so easy for chocolate icing you'll need)
soft butter
tiny amount of milk
icing sugar
put it all together and mix until a good consistency.
