Didn't hold up to my promise...

I really don't like admitting to this one (bad, bad wife..)
But with the wedding season and all, I really really couldn't stand up to my promise.
A few posts ago I told you my husband has a birthday and I was planning on creating a special Bday cake for him. He really loves the sea, diving etc' so I planned a very special coral reef cake.

However, as I already said I didn't have a minute to spare.
So sadly I had to skip on my big plans and go minimal.

That weekend we had friends that came over to celebrate the beginning of summer.
I ain't a big summer fan myself, other than the wedding cakes, that I totaly love! I can't stand the heat, humidity, mosquitos, jelly fish, etc'.
Well, we live in a complex with a pool and every year there's a big party with inflatables and music, the kids have lots and lots of fun, so I thought that that was the best time to have a mini celebration of our own.

I did what I could, for me it meant baking Banana cupcakes, they had to be spaeical, so I used 3 types of sillicon pans, turning these banana cupcakes into unique tiny-pop in your mouth cupcakes.

The recipe was new to me, I found it on the back package of cupcake baking cups.
It was so good It will definiatly star in our kitchan and will also be offered to my brides for wedding cupcake towers.
Here it is:
Banana Cupcakes:
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsweetend cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup muashed ripe banana
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 large egg whites.

preheat oven to 350 F / 180 C
in a large bowl, mix flour, 1/4 cup sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
in a medium bowl beat egg whites until foamy, gradually add remaining 1/2 cup of sugar, beat well untill stiff peaks form.
Stir sour cream mixture into flour mixture until moistend.
fold in 1/3 egg white mixture, fold gently remaining egg white mixture.
fill cupcake pan 3/4 full with batter.
bake 20-25 minutes, the cupcakes are ready when a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

let cool and watch out, you won't be able to resist them...

Til' next time,
Cake away
