This recipe was given to me by a good friend, it's quick to prepare and easy to put together. Just mix the dried ingredients in a bowl, then blend the wet ingredients in another bowl and mix them together. Please note one Australian tablespoon is four US/UK teaspoons
- cooking spray
- 2 1⁄2 cups self raising flour
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 2 bananas, must be ripe
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons butter (melted and slightly cooled) or 2 tablespoons margarine (melted and slightly cooled)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
- 1 eggs or 1 egg substitute
- Preheat oven at 180oC or 350oF or Mark4.
- Grease muffin tin with cooking oil spray and set aside to use later.
- For the dried ingredients - In a large bowl add self raising flour and brown sugar, mix and set aside.
- For the wet ingredients - In another large bowl or large jug add ripe bananas, milk, melted butter or margarine, vanilla essence and egg. Using a hand mixer, puree/combine the mixture, once everything looks like liquid it's ready. My daughter said it looks like a big smoothie.
- Pour the wet ingredients in the dried ingredients bowl. Combine everything together until you form a thick batter.
- Pour mixture into greased muffin tins and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Delicious! Because it made so much I was able to make 12 large muffins and 12 mini ones. The mini ones were for my almost 2 year old grandson. I made 6 as posted, 6 with raisins and chopped walnuts and the 12 mini's were made with a semi-sweet chocolate piece on top or toasted shredded sweet coconut sprinkled on top. DD thought the posted ones needed some extra banana or sweetness added to them. She thought instead of the vanilla flavoring add some banana flavoring to it. My grandson loved the ones with the chocolate chips on top. Thanks for posting. :)
WOW, what a great treat!!!! These muffins are one of the best banana muffins Ive ever made. They came out moist and fruity with such an intense vanilla and banana flavour! YUM!!!! :)
I made half the recipe using my own self-made flour and all whole spelt. Also I reduced the sugar to 1 tbs as my banana was very sweet. Such a great recipe, that I will definitely make again.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing it with us, Flower!
