Sunday Baking: Banana Muffins

As part of my Sunday baking series, I have decided to make banana muffins. These are mostly healthy and super tasty. They are easy to make and you don’t feel too guilty for having a couple. Here is my recipe:



75g melted butter

250g self-raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

pinch of salt

1 tsp ground cinnamon

115g cast sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 large bananas

2 eggs

125ml milk


1. Heat the oven to 190C or Gas mark 5. Melt the butter and allow it to cool. Mash the bananas well in a separate bowl. Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt and cinnamon together in a bowl. Add caster sugar and stir thoroughly.

2. In another bowl, beat the eggs, vanilla extract, melted butter and milk. Add the bananas and stir thoroughly.


3. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and slowly add the rest of the ingredients until it is a lumpy paste.


4. Set paper cases into the moulds and spoon in the mixture until almost full.


5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Rest the muffins on a wired rack for 10 minutes before serving.


6.  Eat away.
