Banana Muffins

I had two ripen bananas at home that need to be used up by tonight. While the double chocolate muffins with yoghurt is baking in the oven, I quickly gather all the ingredients needed to make this muffins. End result is, Jonathan popped three at one go when they were cool enough to be eaten. The texture is soft and the cinnamon smell is nice.


Recipe shared by Wink also.

Banana Muffins

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar (original recipe yields for 1 cup)
1 cup mashed ripe banana
1/2 cup margarine or butter
2 eggs
6 tablespoons UHT milk
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. In a bowl mix flour, baking powder, baking soda,
salt, and cinnamon and set aside.
2. In a separate bowl cream margarine and sugar, add eggs
and mix until smooth. Stir in milk and mashed banana and
mix well.
3. Fold in flour mixture into the liquid ingredients until combined.
4. Fill greased muffin tins two-thirds of the way full.
5. Bake in a preheated 170 degrees C oven for 25mins

Note: I made some changes to the recipe. I used both brown sugar and castor sugar for this recipe to make up 140g. I added 1 tsp of cinnamon powder instead of 1/2 tsp.

Have bookmarked this as my urgent to do list, cos my younger daughter loves everything bananas.

Thanks for sharing.


Dont know why twice I made muffin, it expanded and overflowed. I try to lessen the batter in the muffin tins but it was like filling half only .. still overflowed.

What kind of muffin tray did you use? For the two muffins recipes that I have just posted, I spooned the batter to almost full in the paper cup and it did not overflow.

Hugbear said...

Hi panda q, omit cinnamon powder if you like. No problem.

Hi Candy, 1/2 cup margarine or butter is about 113 gram (1 cup is 225 gram).

Can you replace UHT milk with fresh milk ? what's the purpose of UHT milk?

Do I have to beat butter, eggs and sugar until fluffy

Hugbear said...

Yes you can use fresh milk in place of UHT milk. The purpose of the milk to make the muffin moist. Yes cream butter and sugar until fluffy and creamy.

Gab said...
