Hi Everyone, hope your all well.
My (like post of yours) Instagram has been inundated with people baking banana loafs, and I did think about doing one myself. I then decided that after flicking through my Mary Berry Fast Cakes book I came across a lovely little recipe for banana and chocolate chip muffins. I was excited, nothing better than adding in a little piece of heaven into a bake.
2 ripe bananas
250g self-raising flour
1 level tsp baking powder
175g light muscovado sugar
2 large eggs
1 x 150g pot of natural yoghurt
2 tbsp milk
I first started mashing up the bananas with a fork before adding all of the ingredients (minus the chocolate chips) into a bowl. Now I didn’t have any of the muscovado sugar so I just used normal granulated sugar that you use in your tea. Once all the ingredients were well blended together I stirred in to the chocolate chips. As the over was nearly heated up (180 degrees/Gas 4) I started spooning in my mixture into my cases. Popped them into the oven for 25-30 minutes or until they are lightly golden brown. Once baked I left them to cool down. They smelt amazing when they were cooking as I was super excited to eat one haha.
The recipe says it bakes 12 muffins however they turned out a little on the small side despite putting 3 heaps of mixture into the cases. I do feel that I should of just made 6 and that would of been plenty enough. However they tasted amazing if I do say so myself. Pleased I decided to bake these instead of a banana loaf. I really really enjoy baking at the moment it helps pass the time away and results in the house smelling lovely, as well as having some lovely little afternoon treats.
What have you been baking recently? Anything you’d like me to try out?
Thank you for reading xxx
