Banana Muffin

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
  • Walnuts
  • 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.
