Banana walnut muffins recipe
This is a wonderful and easy recipe to either make just because you like the flavour of banana and walnuts or because your bananas need to be used up and you don't know what else to do.
Ingredients: (makes 12 muffins)
1 2/3 cups self raising flour
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
5 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs, large
1 1/2 cup mashed bananas (+- 3 to 4 bananas)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 205 degrees C, or 400 degrees F.
Prepare your muffin tray with liners or grease and flour each tin.
In a bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and the walnuts. Mix it up so the walnuts are covered in flour and the powders seem to be spread.
In a standing mixer's bowl, add the butter and sugar, and beat until the mixture is light and creamy.
Add the eggs and beat for one more minute.
Add the bananas and vanilla extract, and mix until well blended.
Fold both mixtures together just enough for it to be well mixed through.
Spoon your mixture to the tins, and put it to bake in the oven.
If you want to decorate a bit like I did, leave whole walnuts to add at the top of your cake, just spoon the batter in the tin, and then lightly place the walnut on top.
Let it cook until when you insert a knife it comes out clean, it should take around 18 minutes.
Let the muffins cool before eating.
Or be greedy like me and eat them still warm but after it has cooled for a bit so you won't burn yourself. ;)
Have you ever eaten banana muffins before?
Do you like the walnuts with it?
