Banana Cupcakes

I'm sure there are thousands of recipes for banana bread/cake but it's not easy to find the one that is perfect to your taste... In my case, I'd made numbers of banana cakes using many different recipes and fortunately, I finally found the one !  While I think this banana cake is the best I've ever had , I, though, don't assume that it would be the same to you but please believe's definitely worth your try !

Ingredient (make 18-20 cupcakes):

200 g self raising flour

1.5 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 scant tsp salt

3 extra large eggs ,at room temperature

140 g caster sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup canola oil

200 g mashed ripe banana ( about 3 medium )

a splash of lemon juice

Method :

1. Preheat the oven to 200c. Line a muffin tin with 12 paper cups. Sift together the first four ingredients and set aside. In a medium bowl, mix the mashed banana and lemon juice and set aside.

2. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar on high speed until reaches the ribbon stage about 7-8 minutes. Add in the oil and mix, still on high speed, until well combined for 2 minutes. Fold the flour mixture into the batter using spatula and gently mix until just incoperated. Then stir in the banana. Divide the batter into 18-20 cups and bake in the preheated oven for 14 -18 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center come out clean. Let cool in the tin for 5-10 minutes before transfer to cool completely on a wire rack.
