Banana and Chocolate Muffins

Breakfast Muffins

I don’t know about you but winter feels like it’s dragging for me. I’m definitely craving those extra few minutes in bed and so I’ve not been leaving time for breakfast as I usually do. Although technically they’re still cake, these delicious banana and chocolate muffins can be made on Sunday evening and (if you don’t eat them all) will give you a quick breakfast on the go throughout the week! If you’d like to make your own, here’s how:

Ingredients:

  • 150g butter
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 300g self raising flour
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 medium banana (mashed)
  • 50-75g (depending on if your hand ‘slips’) of chocolate chips

Equipment Needed:

  • Mixing Bowl
  • Metal Dessert Spoon (+ 1 additional to help you spoon the mixture into the cases)
  • Tablespoon
  • Scales
  • Measuring jug (or a large mug will be fine!)
  • Whisk
  • Paper Muffin Cases (or silicone for the environmentally conscious!)
  • 12 Hole Muffin Tin
  • Cooling Rack

Method:

  1. In a mixing bowl, cream softened butter and sugar in a bowl until the mixture is light and fluffy (to cream the two, use a metal spoon and press and drag the mixture against the side of the bowl…you’ll hear the sugar crunching)
  2. Add the flour to the bowl
  3. In a jug, whisk the milk and eggs together
  4. Add to the mixing bowl and combine gently in a figure of 8 movement until smooth (be careful not to overwork the flour by stirring to vigorously)
  5. Add the mashed banana and chocolate chips to your mixing bowl and stir gently to combine
  6. Spoon the mixture into paper cases and bake in the oven (Gas Mark 5/200 degrees Celsius) for 20-25 minutes (when you check your cakes are ready press the top gently…if it springs back, it’s cooked)
  7. Leave to cook on the rack
  8. Try not to eat them all at once!
