Banana and Fudge Muffins

Bananas – either my kids are having a banana frenzy where bunches seem to vanish as soon as I get them in the house, other times they sit forlorn and ignored, turning slowly black on the window ledge. On those latter occasions the answer is to bake with them. Usually I whip up a quick banana bread, but this time I went for banana and fudge muffins – the fudge adds a banoffee style flavour to the muffins and as usual within hours of making these, they had all disappeared.

Ingredients

  • 100g fudge (cut into small pieces or buy the little cubes that you can get in the baking aisle)
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 large free-range egg
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 125g caster sugar

Method

Mash the bananas well, then stir in the egg, milk and oil. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder and sugar. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, add in 80g fudge pieces and fold gently together. Pop mix into 12 muffins cases, you are aiming for about two thirds full, then sprinkle the remaining fudge over the top. Bake at 180 degrees for approx 20 minutes. Allow to cool, then enjoy!

    YUM!
    I always stick the bananas in the freezer when they start to go sort. (peel them first). I use them for smoothies or in baking and also seem to have loads or none. Never just enough. Going to try these later. Someone bought me fudge for my birthday but it is just so sweet so this is the perfect solution to use it up.

    Oh goodness we’re exactly the same in this house! I often chop them up and freeze slices to add to smoothies but your muffins sound insanely good!

    They look delicious….My girls are the same. They either go crazy over bananas or they just ignore them and let them turn black….I think next time they do I will have to have a go at making these x

    Oh yum, I could just eat one of these with a hot cup of sweet tea right about now! We don’t do enough baking in our house and we really need too. Olly has discovered about a new passion for ‘helping’ out in the kitchen and i’m sure he’d love to make these. Thanks for the recipe x
