Banana Muffins March 6, 2006Posted by thelazychef in Muffins, Cupcakes and Scones.
Yesssss….. I finally baked after a long break… its so fulfilling! (haha… if only i can have as much interest and heart in my studies…! I could top the cohort!)
As said in the previous post, my bro has a home economics project and he has to create a muffin with a budget of $4. And since bananas are cheap and makes muffins super flavourful, I thought, why not?
And so, I got the recipe off my trusty forum, Kitchencapers.net and taught my
rascal brother how to bake the muffins.
I’m sure he’ll get an A! (Thats if he doesn’t ‘kill’ his muffin by over mixing!)
The muffin was moist and smelled great. It wasn’t too sweet which would definately please all those healthy pple out there… =)
Taste wise, I could taste the banana bits because I purposely left chunks of banana in the muffin batter and did not mash all the banana in.
Well, it wasn’t as fluffy as I would have expected it to be, it was a little like a cross between kueh* and cake, but yes, definately leaning towards the cake consistancy.
Well, overall, I feel that this recipe is a keeper… so go ahead, give it a try too… =)
kueh: a malay/peranakan type of cake which is normally very dense and moist.
What you need:
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar (original recipe yields for 1 cup)
1 cup mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
1/2 cup melted butter
6 tablespoons UHT milk
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 In a bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda,
salt, and cinnamon and set aside.
2 In a separate bowl, mix melted butter and eggs. Stir in milk and mashed banana and
3 Fold in flour mixture into the liquid ingredients until combined.
4 Fill greased muffin tins two-thirds of the way full.
5 Bake in a preheated 170 degrees C oven for 25mins
1. I used ‘Ang Ba Jeo’ bananas, apparently, its one of the better ones used for baking purposes.
2. You can substitute butter with margarine or corn oil…
