Minion Cupcakes February 19, 2015

Minion Cupcakes

I know, they should be blue and yellow not orange but I had a 3 year old Granddaughter in the house with me at the time of making them…but I’m sure I used yellow colouring!

 

Ingerdients

1 1/2 cups plain flour

3 1/4 cups sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

pinch of salt

4 large bananas

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

2 eggs

4 oz melted butter

Twinkies

Chocolate sprinkles

Chocolate balls

Black and white icing

 

Method

 

Mix together all the dry ingredients in a bowl, the flour, sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt.

In a separate bowl mash the bananas then add the vanilla extract, eggs and butter and beat well.

Pour the wet mixture into the dry and beat until well combined.

Pour into cupcake liners, I used blue as that’s the colour of the Minions trousers.

Bake for 18 – 20 minutes in a Gas 4/175C oven.

Make up a batch of butter cream, colour half blue and half yellow (unless you have a granddaughter helping ;-)) and pipe the butter cream onto the cakes.

Cut the Twinkies in half and using the black icing pipe on the glasses and mouths, pipe the white icing into the glasses then add a chocolate ball to each to make the eyes. Gently push a few chocolate sprinkles in to make the hair.
