  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, 350°F, gas 4).  Sit 12 paper cases into a muffin tin.

  2. Step 2:

    Break the eggs into a bowl and add the sugar. Whisk  using an electric whisk for at least 4 minutes. This mixture should be light and fluffy.

  3. Step 3:

    Sieve together the flour and baking powder.  While still whisking add the flour and butter, a little at a time, whisking the mixture each time to ensure a smooth texture. Fold in the mashed banana and fudge pieces.

  4. Step 4:

    Spoon the mixture evenly into the cupcake cases, to about 2/3 full. Smooth the surface slightly. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until they feel spongy and golden brown. Remove the cakes from the tin and leave to cool on a wire rack.

  5. Step 5:

    Beat the butter until soft and smooth and add the icing sugar a little at a time until you get a smooth mix. Fold in a tablespoon of the dulce de leche.

  6. Step 6:

    Top the cakes with the butter icing and the remaining dulce de leche. Decorate with banana chips
