Banana and Choc Muffins

Banana and Choc Muffins

Well, I have been donating a lot of cooking lately, so I haven’t had much time to take photos, well, that’s my excuse anyway!  So tonight I decided I would cook something and keep it!  We had been given some lovely local bananas and they ripened up pretty quick, and no one would eat them all brown and spotty, so I thought some muffins would be nice!

What You Need:

  • 3 bananas
  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 60g butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup choc bits
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

What You Need To Do:

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees first. Line your tins with cupcake cases.  This recipe makes about 18 muffins but, I made 12 in a cupcake tin and 3 enormous ones in a large muffin tin (for the man that requires manly cakes, not in girly pink patty pans!)  Melt the butter now and set it aside so it has time to cool a little.

Sift the flour, stir in the sugar, breaking up any lumps of sugar, and make a well in the centre of the bowl.  Lightly beat the eggs, milk and butter and add to the dry ingredients.

Mash the bananas and add the cinnamon and stir it in.  Add this to the bowl and gently mix everything together until it is just combined, then gently stir in the choc bits.  I used milk chocolate bits but I think white chocolate would be just as yummy.

Spoon one and a half tablespoons of mixture into each case and bake for 20 minutes or until they are firm to the touch.  Leave them to cool for a few minutes in the tin and then turn onto a wire rack to completely cool, if you can resist!!
