For years I’ve loved baking, but I’m not always very good at it. Sometimes I can make amazing bakes, other times I can make more ‘meh’ kind of cakes. My skills really aren’t that great, and although I won’t be making star baker on GBBO anytime soon, my baking skills are slowly starting to improve. Recently I’ve started to perfect a few recipes, and one of my favourites is my banana and cinnamon muffins.
These muffins are quite basic, but when done well, they are super delicious. Because I’m pretty proud of how well my muffins have turned out, I wanted to share my recipe, and well show off a little at how good these muffins look.
All you need is:
200g plain flour (I used a gluten free one for these muffins)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large bananas, mashed
150g caster sugar
75g butter, melted
1 teaspoon cinnamon
This is probably one of the quickest and easiest recipes I’ve baked for sometime, and it only really took me 10 minutes to prepare. All I had to do was:
Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Place 12 paper baking cases in a muffin tin
Sift together the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt and set aside
Combine mashed bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter in a large bowl. Fold in flour mixture, and mix until smooth
Spoon evenly into baking cases in muffin tin
Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until muffins spring back when lightly tapped
… And ta dahhhh! The perfect banana and cinnamon muffins!
If you’re a long term reader of my blog it’s no lie that I’m a bath bomb addict. Since discovering Lush products I’ve been known to have a stash or two lying around. Obviously the people in my real life have caught on to this, and have realised that I like my bath bombs. So…
I love chocolate milk, I’m terrible for it. Whenever I’m out and see the option of chocolate milkshakes, or even in my local corner shop, I just can’t resist it. Luckily I can behave a bit more at home, as we never have any milk in as my mum’s lactose intolerant, so a rare chocolate…
A few months ago me and my mum went on a little trip away to Manchester for a few days, mostly to visit the Coronation Street tour, but also to have a little girly holiday. I’d never been to Manchester before, and being the organised person I am, I decided to plan lots of other fun…
Anyone who knows me will know I’m obsessed with tea. I can’t go a day without drinking about 4 cups of the stuff. So when Bluebird Tea Co contacted me asking me to review their Chocolate Tea Lovers Box of course I jumped at the chance! I really love making loose leaf tea before I go to…
My other half is a huge coffee lover. He frequently brews coffee beans at the weekend, making our small little flat smell amazing. I’ve never been a huge coffee drinker, I like the occasional Starbucks or an instant coffee if I need an afternoon pick me up. However, you can really taste the difference between…
I’m luck that I have a nice tight knit group of friends who I get to see regularly. When we were younger we used to spend all of our free time at each others houses, and as we got older we’d spend all of our time together on nights out. Over the past few years…
