  • Now add the wet ingredients. Mix just to incorporate well. Make sure there are no lumps. Meanwhile pre-heat your oven to 180 deg Celsius. Line a muffin tray with muffin liners and pour the cupcake batter upto 3/4th in each hole. Bake it for 18-20 mins or until an inserted tooth pick comes out clean.

  • While the Banana Chocolate Cupcake is baking, lets make the whipped cream frosting. Take whipping cream and sugar in a wide bowl. Beat it with an electric mixer until soft peaks. Continue to beat further until stiff peaks – as shown in pics 2 & 3.

  • Once the cupcakes are baked, let them cool on a wire rack. Once cooled completely, top the cupcakes with whipped cream by using a disposable piping bag.

Banana Chocolate Cupcake with whipped cream is ready.

Enjoy this soft and moist cupcakes.





  1. The warm water and milk give a super-moist texture to the Banana Chocolate Cupcake. At 1st I was skeptical to use water but trust me, that is the highlight of this recipe.
  2. U can skip egg and replace it by 2 tbsp of yogurt for an eggless version.
  3. For the frosting, adjust sugar according to your taste buds. U can taste the cream in between and add accordingly. The above measurements resulted in moderate sweetness.
  4. U can skip the vanilla extract and add a pinch of cinnamon powder for a different flavour.
  5. An over-ripe banana is perfect for this recipe.
  6. The above measurements yields 12 Banana Chocolate Cupcakes.
