Banana Choc-Chip Muffins Recipe

So I've been doing some creating in the kitchen again, this time it's banana choc-chip muffins. Delicious, if I do say so myself.


* 1/2 Cup of Butter or Margarine
* 1/4 Cup of Sugar
* 1 Egg
* 3 Medium Bananas
* 1 3/4 Cups of Self-Raising Flour
* 1/2 Tsp Nutmeg
* 1/4 Tsp Baking Soda
* As many choc-chips as you can stand!

#1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Mash the bananas into a bowl.The older and browner the bananas the easier they will be to mash, and old/brown-ness doesn't affect the taste of the muffins

#2. Mix the butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Then add the egg and the banana and blend again.
#3. Add the nutmeg and the baking soda. If you don't have baking soda but you do have baking powder, that's okay, just double the amount. So that would be 1/2 Tsp of baking soda.

#4. Add the SR-Flour to in batches, you don't really need an electric beater for this bit, in fact I prefer to use a fork because the mixture is quite thick, which means that it's really hard to clean the beater afterwards. And using a fork is just as effective.
#5. This recipe calls for choc-chips but they are 100% optional. The muffins are still delicious without them, but most people prefer to add the chocolate. If you don't have choc-chips that's okay, you could use choc melts or a chocolate block, or any kind of chocolate and just chop them up into bits, as displayed below :)

#6. Scoop the mixture into patty pans. The great thing about patty pans is they make wash up so much easier, because the tray is clean, plus I think it makes eating the muffins a whole bunch easier. I use two dessert spoons to scoop because they generally collect the perfect amount of mixture. But as a general rule, I wouldn't fill the patty pans much higher than level, don't dome the mixture in the pans, they will rise on their own.
#7. Put in the oven to cook for 20-25 minutes. 


So there it is, banana choc-chip muffins, happy cooking my friends xx
