Bananas are affordable and plentiful again and I’ve now had my fill so I’m likely to have a couple of them start to turn, the perfect time for them to be turned into muffins or cakes. This recipe is adapted from one I found on Recipe Source. It is enough to make 12 muffins and neatly doubles if required
- Two large bowls
- Wooden spoon
- Electric mixer
- Muffin Tray/s
- Muffin cups (paper or silicon)
- Oven (kinda important)
FIRST THING TO DO ONCE YOU’VE DISCOVERED YOU HAVE ALL THE INGREDIENTS
- preheat the oven to 180C (350F) I forget this step ALL THE TIME (If you have a fan forced oven, drop the temperature by between 10 – 20 degrees)
- 2 extra-ripe bananas
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 1/4 cup butter (melted)
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 2 1/4 cups of plain flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp of cinnamon (more or less according to your taste – I LOVE cinnamon so tend to put more in)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup of chocolate chips (milk or dark according to taste)
Mash the bananas!
Then in the smaller of your two large bowls, beat mashed bananas, eggs, sugar, melted butter and vanilla until well blended.
In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour int he banana mixture. Mix until just blended.
Spoon into muffin cups.
Bake for between 25 – 30 mins. Let cool, enjoy!
