Made these last night because my bananas were going bad. They’re pretty good.

Banana Chocolate Cupcakes
1 c. flour ($1.77/3 lb)
1 c. sugar ($2.59/4 lb)
1/3 c. and 2 Tbsp cocoa powder ($2.49)
3/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 ripe bananas (mashed)
3/4 tsp. vanilla extract ($1.39)
1/4 c. oil
1/4 c. milk
1/2 c. warm water
(total cost: $8.24)
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Mix together dry ingredient (flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt).
In a separate bowl mix together other ingredients (milk, banana, egg, water, oil and vanilla extract).
Add the liquid mixture into the dry mixture, and mix together. The final batter is very thin.
Pour mixture into muffin pan (either lined or greased).
Bake for 20-24 mins.
I frosted some of my cupcakes with peanut butter frosting which I made by mixing together Betty Crocker vanilla frosting and peanut butter. The others I frosted with just the plain vanilla frosting. I think I like the ones frosted with just vanilla better, the peanut butter kind of overwhelms the banana chocolate taste.
