My cake addiction is getting worse and worse, I’ve now begun a routine of uploading a baking recipe every Sunday – followed by a beauty review on a Wednesday! I hope you all like that idea 🙂
These fudge and banana muffins are perfect if you sweet tooth isn’t massive but you are after something a little more than a plain cake mixture. Follow these easy 7 steps and you’ll have yourself (approximately) 12 muffins (dependant on your muffin case sizes)!
You will need:
- 1x 12 hole muffin tray
- 12 paper cases
- 250g self-raising flour
- 1 Teaspoon baking powder
- 100g soft light brown sugar
- 100g fudge
- 75g butter
- 125ml milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 2 medium ripe bananas
- 2 medium eggs
- 2 tablespoons of clear honey (optional for glazing)
- Heat the oven to 190 degrees C, 375 degrees F, gas mark 5. Put paper cases into each hole in a muffin tray. Sift the flour and baking powder together in a large mixing bowl.
- Put the fudge on a chopping board and cut it into chunks (make sure the chunks aren’t too small or they’ll disappear once cooked). Add the sugar and fudge to the bowl and stir them in. Make a hollow in the middle of the mixture.
- Put the butter into a saucepan and heat gently over a low heat until the butter has melted. Remove the pan from the heat and add the milk and vanilla essence.
- Peel the bananas and put them into a small bowl – mash them with a fork until they are fairly smooth. Break the eggs into another bowl and beat them with a fork/whisk.
- Add the bananas and beaten eggs to the mixture in the pan – stir them in. Then, pour the mixture into the hollow in the dry ingredients.
- Stir everything with a wooden spoon – the mixture will still look quite lumpy. Then, spoon it into the paper cases. Fill each paper case almost to the top.
- Bake the muffins for 20 minutes until they are firm and well-risen. Keep them in the tray for 5 minutes and brush the tops with honey. Further, leave them to a cooling on a wire rack (or eat them still warm like I like to ;))
