Banana (Cup)cakes

This is a recipe from Cake Journal. It had the details for the cake version. This is more different from the ones that I had baked before. This is more dense but yet still moist and soft. I had added in some chocolate rice as I specially baked this for the YL mothers' gathering at Children botanic garden (Jacob Ballas Children's Garden)outing.

The outing was really fun. It's amazing at the children that we have in our zone. The kids totally enjoyed themselves. Le Xuan is still too young, probably have to wait for at least 1 year before she can play over there. The enviroment is very condusive and with various facilities available.

I had baked this after my friday night class, hence was too tired to take any pictures for this.

140g sugar
2 eggs
3 medium size bananas (180g) (mashed)
1tsp baking soda
