Banana is my favorite fruit; I can eat it at any time of the day and if it’s sweet enough even 3 at a time.
I experimented with the regular cake and added some mashed bananas into the cake batter and made these muffins but they came out to be really very very tasty…
125gms plain flour
100gms unsalted butter
100gms caster sugar
3 medium sized bananas mashed (bananas should be very ripe and mushy)
11/2 tsp baking powder
3 large eggs
½ sp baking soda
Vanilla essence (some prefer cinnamon, nutmeg combination)
You can add finely chopped almonds or cashew nuts in the batter this is optional.
In a bowl mix together butter and sugar with a whisk or electric blender
Then add one egg at a time and whip, let each egg get well incorporated in the mixture
Add the baking powder and soda
Then add the mashed bananas and mix
Add the plain flour to the mix and mix with the cut and mix method.
If you find the mixture is a bit dry you can add a little milk
Add the vanilla essence and the cashew and almond mix
Preheat oven to 180 C
Fill small muffin cups which are greased beforehand
Let them bake for about 15-20 mins
Remove and eat hot.
