Banana Muffins with a little bit more

I have had a few Banana's that I needed to use up before they went dodgy in this scorching heat, so this is their story...

Once upon a time their were a couple of unkempt looking Banana's laying around in the fruit bowl and their owner thought she might turn them into beautiful muffins...

And so she did...


2 cups of self-raising flower
3/4 cup of caster sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup of milk
60g melted butter
2 ripe bananas
(+ the following three ingredients that I added for a little bit more taste)
1 cup of frozen blueberries
Tspn of vanilla essence
Tspn of ground cinnamon

1. Preheat the oven to 210 degrees (I used Fan Forced). Lightly grease a 12 case muffin tin.
2. Sift the flour into a large bowl and stir in the sugar. Make a well.
3. Mix together the eggs, milk, butter, and mashed banana and pour into the well of the bowl.
4. Stir the ingredients with a spoon.
5. Add the blueberries, vanilla essence and ground cinnamon and stir until just mixed.
6. Spoon the mixture into the muffin holes.
7. Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until the muffins have risen and are golden brown.
8. Remove from oven and transfer them to a wire rack to cool.

And this is what those ugly bananas turned into. Unfortunately they did not live happily ever after as they came to an untimely demise in their owners stomach.

The End.



  1. Oh yum they look great! Bananas rarely last long enough around here to start getting to that mashable cake/muffin making stage!

    1. they dont usually last here either but because it has been so hot they deteriorated really quickly!

  2. Oh man, they sound sooooo good! And now I am hungry! Must go eat lunch (which sadly will not be as good as though muffins!)

    1. Why not muffins?! I had a muffin for breakfast and man it was good ;)

  3. Nice work! My kids will love those additions! :)

  4. Oh, lovely! I've been thinking about a variation to my usual banana and oat muffins. This will work a treat!

  5. YUM love banana cake, now I can try something different. Thanks for posting.
