Baking with children: Banana cupcakes

 You may think that let the children bake by themselves is hard, but if you choose the right recipe, they will be able to do it.





This time I let my niece bake by herself, well, I took care of the part that can be dangerous for her (cutting the banana into small pieces and taking care of the oven ^^), beside from that she can do everything! Start with soft butter, this cake requires only one bowl, just put all the ingredients into the bowl and beating until combine, that's all. Banana cake is the best way to use over ripe banana, as it becomes sweeter as it ripe, the soft and dark skin one is good (anyway, I didn't talk about the one that has strange smell of fermentation). Beside from less food wasting, you can put the baked cupcakes in the freezer, they can be kept for 1 month (if you plan to keep, skip the banana piece for topping, cover with 1 layer of plastic wrap, 1 layer of aluminium foil and another layer of plastic wrap). 
The new semester just started and now I can get back to my routine (haha, I was a baby sister for 2 months), actually spending time with children is not a bad thing but I couldn't try new things much as testing a recipe needs attention (while my niece needed my attention too). Anyway, I will have more time now, haha!
Ps. Do you enjoy my Youtube? If there are anything that you want me to do, don't hesitate to comment so I can improve it.
