We had a pretty long day today and I am gonna keep this short... had baked these twelve sweet smelling, beautifully domed muffins for our afternoon tea err more like to go along with our espresso hahha and let me tell u abt these muffins... not only are they easy to prepare.. The muffins tasted really delicious when they were fresh out of the oven... so do serve it warm! The texture was all moist and fluffy and the sweetness was just right. This recipe is definitely going to be a keeper!!
(makes 10 ~ 12 muffins)
275g plain flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large bananas, about 450g
125g brown caster sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
50ml semi-skimmed milk (I used low fat fresh milk)
75g unsalted butter, melted and cooled
50g chocolate chips
Pre-heat oven to 180degC (350 degF). Line muffin pans with paper muffin cases.
Sieve together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a mixing bowl. Mix in the chocolate chips. Set aside.
Peel the bananas and mash with a fork in a bowl. Add in brown sugar, egg, milk and melted butter. Mix until well combined.
Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients. With a wooden spoon or a spatula, gently fold all the ingredients to form a wet batter. Stir gently, using only a few strokes and mix until the flour are incorporate into the batter. DO NOT Over mix. The batter should appear lumpy.
Spoon batter into paper muffin cases. Bake for 20mins until muffins turn golden brown or a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Let cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or cold.
