special by R’unique



  • 1 cup (200 grams) granulated white sugar
  • 1 cup (130 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup (35 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder(regular or Dutch-processed)
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup mashed ripe bananas(about 1 medium sized banana)
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) warm water
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C)
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In another large bowl, whisk together the egg, mashed banana, water, milk, oil, and vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir, or whisk, until combined. (The batter is quite thin.)
  4. Pour or scoop the batter into the muffin cups, about 3/4 full, and bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
