I found this fabulous recipe book on sale when we were shopping for Christmas gifts and I’m quite satisfied with the million menus each with beautiful photos inside. It also has a section for desserts, may not be much but really good ones. The first time I peeked through, I already had my eye on this banana muffin recipe.
The first time I tried this recipe I must have mixed more banana than necessary. The taste was right but the texture isn’t. The 2nd time around, it’s perfect. They all made it through my box of Christmas goodies.
75g Plain flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
A Pinch of salt
75g Caster sugar
3 tbsp milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
75 margarine, melted
1 small banana, mashed
25g Cream cheese
1 tbsp Margarine
A pinch of ground cinnamon
45g Icing sugar
Preheat oven to 180 deg C. Place medium-sized muffin paper lining in a 6-hole muffin pan. Combine flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl.
Combine milk, eggs and margarine together in another bowl. Slowly stir into the flour mixture without beating. Fold in the mashed banana.
Scoop the mixture into the paper cases and bake for 20 minutes until risen and golden brown. Place on a wire rack and leave to cool.
For the frosting, beat cream cheese and margarine together, then beat in the cinnamon and icing sugar until smooth and creamy. Chill in the fridge for approx. 15 minutes, then top each muffin with a spoonful. You may also dust the surface with more ground cinnamon. Enjoy!
Here’s an alternative proportions for the frosting that I did the first time. It’s also yummy.
1/2c Icing sugar
3/3 tbsp milk
1 tsp Cinnamon
