Banana Cupcakes & Chocolate Chips Cupcakes

I have stopped baking for a few months and I suddenly got bitten again by the baking bugs yesterday.

I baked one tray 10 cupcakes only. 4 banana chocolate chips cupcakes and 6 chocolate chips cupcakes.

When I checked my blog archive, apparently I have baked these types of cupcakes before.

My daughters prefer banana chocolate chips from this bake. They said banana chocolate chips cupcakes are more tasty than chocolate chips cupcakes.

Here I share these two very simple and yummy cupcake recipes again.
