Surprised myself with how moist and scrummy these banana muffins were as well as being super easy to make. I followed this recipe by Nigella but omitted the nutmeg (because I didn’t have any), added extra cinnamon (because I love it) and swapped half the caster sugar for dark brown sugar (because I didn’t have enough). I also used bananas which weren’t that ripe (because I’m impatient). I’ve packed two for work today and I’ve already scoffed one and it’s only just 11am.

1) mix up dry ingredients: 250g self raising flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 50g caster sugar, 50g dark sugar.

2) separate bowl, whisk wet ingredients: 125ml milk, 1 sploodge of honey, 2 eggs, 75g of melted butter, drop of vanilla and 2 mushed up bananas.

3) add wet to dry and fold in – it’s meant to be lumpy as Nigella says!

4) bake on 190 for 20 mins.

I’ve left out some more bananas to ripen as banana bread is on my list of things to bake next. If you’ve got a recipe, send it my way.
