My beloved friend May and her son Wilf have come to stay with us this weekend and I took great pleasure in making them these Banana Choc Muffins for brunch this morning. All in all we have had a super calorific day what with the muffins, all-butter scrambled eggs and an incredible Spinach Macaroni Cheese I got from the Riverford website. Deeelicious!
Banana Choc Recipe (slightly adapted from Nigella’s ‘Kitchen’) –
3 Ripe Bananas
125ml Vegetable Oil
100g Light Soft Brown Sugar
2 Large Eggs
225g Plain Flour
1 tsp Bicarb
3 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
50g Plain Chocolate, chopped
Mash the bananas thoroughly, then beat in the oil, followed by the eggs and sugar.
Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl, then beat gently into the wet ingredients. Finally, add the chopped chocolate.
Spoon into muffin cases and bake at 200C/Gas 6 for 15-20 minutes. I did this batch for 20 but they could have been a touch moister – I wish I’d taken them out a little earlier!
