What do you do if you have some ripe banana sitting in your kitchen? Found to recipe from my favourite food blog. A steam banana cake or banana muffin. So hubby think that steam banana cake sound a little wierd so we decide to try lily's banana muffin this time.
- 75g/3oz vegetable oil
- 250g/9oz self-raising flour or 250 g all-purpose flour + 3 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- pinch of salt
- ½ tsp ground nutmeg
- 115g caster sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp banana essence
- 3 medium, ripe bananas
- 2 large eggs
- 125ml/4fl oz milk
- Heat the oven to 375F
- Mash the bananas well. Sift flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a large bowl, add caster sugar and stir through.
- With a fork, beat together the eggs, vanilla extract, banana essence, oil and milk in a second bowl. Add the mashed banana and stir through.
- Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add the egg mixture, fold in with a biggest spatula (don't over mix) until it is a lumpy paste.
- Grease the moulds well with a little extra oil or butter and using an icecream scoop, spoon in the mixture until almost full. Top each one with some walnut.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins come away from the side of the pan when touched. Rest the muffin tray on a wire rack for five minutes then remove the muffins and leave on the rack for another five minutes before serving.
