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.
- 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
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!
Perfect with a nice cup of tea,
