Bento #192 - Banana Bear

This is my 3rd attempt to bake cake, but this time is banana cake. Remember the first two attempts wasn't that successful and I have figured out where went wrong. This time I sifted the flour, I heated the oven earlier, I used butter instead of margarine and beat it longer.

The banana cupcake taste so nice while it is still hot, it's loose and soft inside. Banana is one of Isaac's favourite fruit, therefore he loves this cupcake more compare with previous two cupcakes. I decorated the cupcake into little brown bear. As you can see, the ears were cut from banana cake too... (^.^)

Ingredients:(around 16 cupcakes)
230g Self Raising Flour
230g Butter, softened at room temperature
160g Castor Sugar
300g Banana (mash it)
3 Eggs, at room temperature
1/2 Teaspoon Banana Essence (I forgot to buy therefore I use vanilla essence)
1/3 cup of hazelnut (mash it and bake in oven until golden)

1. Using electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until pale and creamy.
2. Add eggs, beat until well combined.
3. Sift self raising flour over butter mixture and mix well.
4. Add in vanilla essence, mashed banana and hazelnut then mix well.
5. Preheat the oven to 175 degree.
6. Line 16 paper cups in muffin tray.
7. Put the mixture into muffin tray then put 3-4 hazelnut on top.
8. Bake the cake for 15 - 20 minutes until light golden.
