Banana Muffins!!!

Another Yummy Blog for today...I have been crafting, but you'll have to wait until I have given it to it's new owner before I can show you up here!!!

So today it is Lovely Banana Muffins!!!

Preheat oven to 180C.
1/2 Cup of Marg/butter
1/2 Cup of sugar
2 Cups of self raising flour (or 2 cups plain flour and 1 tsp of baking powder)
1 Cup of milk
1 Tsp of vanilla essence/extract
2 Eggs
1 Tsp of bicarbonate of soda
1 1/2 - 2 Cups of mashed banana (about 3 large very ripe bananas)
Optional 1 tsp of cinnamon

1 - Cream together the butter/marg and sugar in a large bowl.
2 - Add in the eggs and combine
3 - Add in the vanilla and cinnamon if your are using it
4 - Mix in the mashed banana, large pieces are kinda nice (they weirdly go purple once they are cooked!!!)
5 - Put the bicarbonate of soda in the milk and stir to dissolve the soda.
6 - Sift in the flour a little at a time alternating with the milk/soda, mixing as you go.
7 - Fill Muffin cases about 2/3 full and cook for around 10-13 mins
(the same mix can be used for a banana cake using a loaf tin and cooking for around 30-40 mins, checking that it isn't burning, check it is cooked by using a skewer in the center. As it is such a wet mix, it can take quite a while to cook, if it beginning to burn, put some foil on the top to protect the cake!!!)
8 - Enjoy!!!
