This is a recipe from on line and tweeked by a couple in Whitianga, New Zealand.
- 4 ripe mashed bananas
- 2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups flour
- Combine all ingredients till just mixed. Do not overmix.
- Scoop a heaping spoonfuls into greased muffin tins top each with a bit of sugar and bake at 350 (200 Celsius) for 20-25 minutes, until muffins begin to brown on top. Serve warm with butter. Makes 1 dozen.
These were yummy! I doubled the cinnamon and took out the nutmeg, while adding a splash of vanilla. I used a little bit more brown sugar and a little more condensed milk, and these were very healthy, and very tasty.
I followed this recipe exactly, and the muffins are quite tasty. The do have a fairly dense doughy texture, but I think that I may not have baked them long enough at 350 for 15 minutes...the tops were still a little raw. No complaints, I liked them a lot, but I would probably not serve them for company, but rather have these as a healthier version of a breakfast muffin. The reason it wouldn't be a company muffin for me is that they are a little too much like bread for a dessert, but too much of a muffin to be served as the bread with dinner. I still liked them though! I also sprayed my pan with cooking spray and let them cool in the pan, and did not have a problem with sticking at all.
I made these this morning to use up some of the overripe bananas that were beginning to overrun my kitchen. I really liked the flavor and texture of these (they were not overly banana-y, and they were more like a chewy yeast bread in texture than a muffin). The batter did seem a little dry to me at first, so I added another two tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk. I used muffin liners too, and they stuck something fierce. I think I'll just use an unlined nonstick pan with cooking spray next time. I really liked how easy and quick these were to make (not even 20 minutes from start to finish for me). Thanks for posting!
