BANANA & WALNUT MUFFINS

These muffins are a good way to use up over ripe bananas.

The recipe is sourced from www.allthecooks.com, posted by Mrsrachaelr and is named as Super Easy, Super Moist Banana Bread.

Since I didn't have a loaf tin, made them in muffin cups. But on making it realized that they not just looked but also tasted more like muffin than a bread, hence a change in the name.



BANANA WALNUT MUFFINS

INGREDIENTS

Bananas (over ripe, peeled and mashed)
3 nos
Melted butter
½ cup
Eggs
2 nos
Brown sugar
1 cup
Maida / refined flour                     
1 ½ cup
Baking pdr
1 tsp
Chopped walnuts
¾ cup
Vanilla essence
½ tsp

METHOD:


1.       In a large bowl, finely mash the bananas to a little pulpy consistency.


2.       To it add the butter, eggs and sugar.


3.       Stir it around to mix properly with each other.


4.       Sieve together the flour and baking pdr and add it to the banana mix.


5.       Mix together lightly.



6.       Now add in the vanilla and walnuts and incorporate them too into the batter.

7.       Do not over mix, you don’t want gluten to start developing in it. But make sure all is mixed well.


8.       Drop in spoonfuls into the paper cups.

9.       Make sure you don’t fill beyond ¾ the capacity. Leave a little space for it to rise.

10.   Bake at 180°C for 25 – 30 min.


11.   Insert a toothpick in the centre of the muffin.


12.   If it comes out clean then the muffins are ready.
