Banoffee Muffins

It seems I have been slipping a bit when it comes to getting round to writing blog posts.  The good news is that I have been busy making quite a few different things, so the reason I haven’t posted in a while is that the making has taken priority over blogging about it for a time!  More on this soon.

I’ve been busy baking again, and these muffins seem to be a good antidote to the current damp and chilly weather.  They were so good they got eaten too fast for me to get many photos!

Fresh from the oven

I modified my basic recipe to add in some banana and butterscotch pieces.

Recipe (makes 12):

  • 260g Self Raising Flour
  • 130g Sugar
  • 2tsp Baking Powder
  • 100ml Sunflower Oil
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 3-4 heaped tbsps Natural Yoghurt
  • 2 Ripe Bananas, mashed
  • 50-75g butterscotch or toffee pieces

Preheat the oven to 180°C.  Put all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix until smooth.  If it feels a bit stiff add some more yoghurt.  Put into muffin cases and bake for 25mins or until a skewer inserted into a cake comes out clean.

These are yummy warm with vanilla ice cream!
