Bake with Ayden: Steamed Banana Cupcakes
We love bananas. It is one of our favourite local fruits. Banana is KING when it comes to nutrition. It is power-packed with essential vitamins and minerals such as potassium, calcium and many more. Potassium helps to maintain a healthy balance of fluids in the body and as an electrolyte, potassium stimulates nerves and muscles throughout our body.
I eat banana everyday before going for my evening jog. Last week, it rained almost every evening deterring us from going to the playground hence we had many bananas lying around. To quickly use them up, Ayden steamed cupcakes with these extra bananas.
Steamed Fluffy Banana Cupcakes
2 bananas (about 200g)
150g self-raising flour

We also discovered something new regarding bananas that day. Ayden found that a banana makes a FANTASTIC mic!

Home is where MY heart is.
I am a mother to two boys; Ethan and Ayden and a wife to Darling William. I'm a stay at home mum who blogs to break the monotony of life and to avoid feeling jaded. Would love to get to know all the Super Mommies and Daddies and Babies or Singles out there with the hope that we can learn more from each other. Most of all, I am a happy person, and I hope YOU are too.

OMG! This looks super yummlicious. :D
Ayden seems very happy to be your sidekick. Ha :D
Yes he is. He loves cooking and baking. He will pester me for new recipes every week. I am already running out of ideas. OMG.
Beautiful!!! Masterchef in the making! That’s a cute cap he’s wearing.
Thank you. My parents bought it for him from Thailand :)
Ayden is so pro now! He can memorise the dialogue so well! Ah, must eat a slice of banana before mashing them. :D
Yes, he has definitely improved. That is our main purpose of doing this. It is part of his learning process. It trains him to be eloquent and expressive and at the same time, works on his motor skills too :)
The colour of the steamed cakes look nice. Well done Ayden! Now I also learn to use bananas to sing.
I was advised to use over ripened soft bananas which made the steamed cakes very fragrant and darker brown. Just my 2 cents.
Yes that is true. Using over riped bananas will definitely give better results in cakes. Those are the sweetest and ‘bestest’ bananas :D
