This recipe produces the most moist and delicious muffins. For banana lovers especially, one muffin is simply not enough! My husband even gave up his must-have nightly nutella and bread supper for a few of these fluffy muffins!
'Nuf said... here's the recipe for 18 fluffly muffins:
• 250g plain flour
• 1 tsp baking soda
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 115g butter
• 85g brown sugar
• 2 eggs
• approx 500g very ripe mashed bananas
• 1 tsp cinnamon powder
• 1 tsp vanilla extract/essence
• (optional) chocolate chips
1 - Combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon powder.
2 - In a separate bowl, cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
3 - Mix in eggs and mashed bananas till well combined.
4 - Add flour mixture and mix till flour is just moistened. (Do not overmix, or you'll get tough muffins.)
5 - Pour or scoop into muffin cups/tray. Top with slices of banana and sprinkle with cinnamon powder.
6 - Bake at 170 degC till golden brown and toothpick inserted into centre comes out clean. (I think it's about 10-12 min.)
Best served warm, with vanilla ice cream and a generous dusting of cocoa powder.
Or for nutella lovers like my husband, slather on some nutella!!
