I love to bake and after finishing university for the summer I have found myself with lots of spare time so my kitchen always smells of cakes (not that I am complaining)
One of my favourite fruits to eat in the morning is the banana. It’s great on its own, mixed with cereal or yoghurt. But I hate when they start to go brown and mushy. I usually like to make a banana loaf with cinnamon so the bananas don’t go to waste, but yesterday I found a new recipe which combines two of my favourite things: BANANAS and NUTELLA.
To make 12 you will need:
230g Self-raising Flour
150g Granulated white sugar
2 Large eggs
113g Melted unsalted butter
3 Large Banana’s
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
4 tbsp Nutella, at room temp
1 – Preheat your oven to 180c/ Gas mark 4. Line a muffin tray.
2 – In one bowl combine the flour, sugar & salt
3 – In a different bowl combine your eggs, mashed banana, the melted butter & vanilla extract
4 – Tip one bowl into the other and gently fold together, you want the batter to be mixed well but still lumpy.
5 – Divide your mixture between the cases, they should be half full (you may have some mixture left over, I had a small muffin tray so I made four small cakes out of the spare mixture)
6 – Take a teaspoon of slightly warm nutella and pop a blob into the centre if the muffin – use a skewer to swirl the nutella through the muffin.
7- Bake for 20 – 25 minutes. To make sure your muffins are baked through, with a clean knife or skewer, insert into the muffin if it comes out clean (free of batter) your muffins are ready.
8 – Leave on a cooling rack till cooled or luke warm if your cannot wait to eat them.
9- These muffins will last a week, but I feel they are best eaten when warm (just out of the oven).
