Banana Cupcake with Dark Chocolate Ganache

To be precise, this is a banana, dates, chocolate chips with walnut topping cupcake with Lindt dark chocolate butter ganache. The name is so long, so used short form for title.

The original cake was a tea-time loaf cake, my sis baked this a few months before and I thought it's a good banana cake recipe. So, instead of using my usual butter cake and making them into banana cake, I used this banana cake recipe.

The baked cupcakes

The icing is a dark chocolate butter ganache.

The decoration for the cupcake, I made some "banana disk", inspired by this blog. It's called the caramelized banana disk, which I might call them "fried" bananas.

Thank u LGM! A supportive taster aka blog ed. I tried a bite of the cupcake this morning, I think maybe the cakes are better off without the walnut. Too much "distraction" towards the cupcake till it's not focused - the highlight is no longer banana.

I need another banana cupcake recipe. Actually, yes, I WILL settle with a muffin recipe, without the icing... soon soon. Take a break from banana cake first.

I shall get straight to the pros and cons

1. banana not ripe enuff (next time add banana essence?? lolz)
2. too many ingredients in the cupcakes/muffin (eh... like that kennot do biz one laaa)

1. packing was really nice. So tempted to keep the box... Got sticker summo...
2. not oily
3. not too sweet
4. love the texture (kinda like melts in your mouth)

Will remind u when u announce when u doing another round of banana cupcake/muffin.

Sekian maklum.

Wahhh... THANK YOU for the great review. it's useful, next time i just refer here and can recall what improvements necessary.

Yeah, i'm quite into packaging, when the content is not that great, you need to mask and deceive others by giving good first impression haha...

Next banana muffin i think will be the week after this week...
