Easy Baking Recipe: Banana Chocolate Chips Yogurt Cake

As our family are hooked on the Pandan Yogurt Cakes, I used that recipe as a base and start coming up with new flavors to try. 

We have some bananas and i have chocolate chips in the fridge, so i made this Banana Chocolate Chips Yogurt Cakes and my sons (1 year old and 5 years old) love them very much!

this recipe yields me 14 cupcakes, 2 more than when i made the pandan yogurt cakes

  7. 10ml vanilla essence
  8. 120ml canola oil

  • Previously i used Paul's All Natural Yogurt (S$2.70 for 200ml) but recently, I found Alvas Plain Yogurt in Sheng Siong, that is manufactured in Singapore and at only S$1.20 for 200ml! Alvas is more sour, so be sure to increase the amount of sugar if you using it!
  • I tried using small eggs sometimes and it turned out fine
  • You can use any other vegetable oil like sunflower oil etc, but i wouldn't recommend olive oil as it has a strong smell
  • If you are using a Microwave Steam Oven like me, I would recommend baking with temperature 160/170 degree at 25 to 30 minutes

tadah! The final products smell and taste heavenly!
