Ingredients:

  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup (80mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed banana (2 large)
  • 12 pecan halves (optional)

Method:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 12 hole muffin pan or line with paper cases. Sift flour into a large bowl of an electric mixer. Add sugar and beat briefly to combine.

In a glass measuring jug, pour in milk (up to 1 cup), oil (up to 1 1/3 cups) and add eggs, whisk to combine. Pour milk mix and bananas into dry ingredients, beat with until just combined.

Spoon into muffin pans and top with a pecan half (if using) and bake for 15 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Cool slightly, then place on rack to cool completely.

Notes:

  • This is a great basic recipe for banana muffins. Add ½ cup choc chips, macadamias or pecans to the mixture for variation.
  • Make these for a special Valentine ’s Day weekend breakfast or as lunchbox fillers for the coming week.
