Banana Muffins

Banana Muffins

Makes 10

75g melted butter
250g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
half tsp bicarbonate of soda
pinch of salt
half tsp ground cinnamon
half tsp ground nutmeg
115g caster sugar
half tsp vanilla extract
2 large, ripe bananas
2 medium eggs
125ml milk

1. Heat the oven to 190C/Gas 5. Melt the butter and allow to cool. Mash the banana well. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a large bowl, add the caster sugar and stir through.
2. With a fork, beat together the eggs, vanilla extract, melted butter and milk in a second bowl. Add the mashed banana and stir through.
3. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, and add the egg mixture, stirring roughly with a fork (don’t overmix) until it is a lumpy paste. Set paper cases into the moulds, or grease the moulds well with a little extra oil or butter and spoon in the mixture until almost full.
4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the muffins come away from the side of the pan when touched. Rest the muffin tray on a wire rack for 5 minutes then remove the muffins and leave on the rack for another 5 minutes before serving.
