The smell of hot muffins just out of the oven is wafting around me as I type this ... and the reason I'm blogging is to try and be good and let them cool before I dive in.
Last year, through the wonderful world of blogging, I came across the very talented Cath, now at, (Living in the Moment)... she can do it all! Her last years, blog "The Year for Change" had some really good recipes on it, quite a few which I've tried - but my favourite so far has been the one for Banana Muffins ... trust me, they're gorgeous, and far too easy to make and eat - so you find yourself making them again and again.
200g (7oz) Plain Four
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp of Salt
1 tsp Bicarb of Soda
3 Bananas, mashed
150g (5oz) Caster Sugar
75g (2 1/2 oz) melted butter
Preheat the oven to 180c/Gas mark 4
Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarb and salt together and leave to one side
Combine mashed bananas, sugar, egg and butter together, fold in flour mixture until smooth.
Spoon evenly into 12 muffin cases
Bake in a preheated oven for around 25 mins or until springy to the touch.
Now, this is one way I just love getting one of my 5 a day ... I'm sure by now they'll be cool :) Thank you Cath.
