Ever wondered what to do with those over ripe bananas that just sit in the fruit bowl, nobody will eat them as they are just a bit too brown. Well here's the answer …. (video demo below)
INGREDIENTS FOR 12 LARGE MUFFINS
300g plain flour
175g castor sugar – or brown if you prefer
15g baking powder
100g melted butter, sunflower oil or maize oil
2 large free range eggs
3 well ripened bananas mashed
100g good quality either dark or milk chocolate chips or chunks
3g bicarbonate of soda
12 bun muffin tray, lined with cases
Turn on oven to 190 deg C. Sieve together the flour, sugar and baking powder. Mash the bananas,the riper the better, as this adds more flavour. Lightly beat the egg, add to the melted butter, milk and mashed banana. Add this to the dry ingredients and chocolate, and mix gently, just until all the ingredients are combined, and no flour is visible. Do not beat as this will give you tough muffins !!
Divide equally between 12 muffin cases, remember to grease your tin if you are not using cases, or they will stick, then bake immediately for approx 20-24 minutes , until they are well risen and firm to the touch. Remove from the oven, and leave in the baking tray for 5 minutes or so to firm up, before turning out onto a cooling rack. Eat warm or leave to cool. ENJOY !
