Bubba Bee and I had another messy time today. We do have lots of messy time of either painting, potting plants and now a bit of baking. Last time Bubba Bee baked banana bread and it came out more moist than mine has ever been!
Today, as I again had some riped bananas and a bowl of strawberries, Bubba Bee made strawberry and banana muffins.
Let me stress that I only help Bubba Bee a bit as she is obviously too young to operate the oven!
I got the main recipe from the Joy of Baking website.
115g buttery margarine, melted
2 tbsp molasses
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large bananas, mashed
1 cup strawberries, chopped into small pieces
300g plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
- > Preheat oven on gas mark 4/180C/350F.
> Mix the molasses, eggs, vanilla extract and mashed bananas in a bowl and add melted butter to the mix.
> In another bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and ground cinnamon. Add the chopped strawberries and coat them well with the dry mixture as this will help stop the strawberries from sinking.
> Pour the wet mix to the dry mix and stir until mixture just combined. Do not over stir as this may result in tough muffin.
> Divide the mixture evenly into a 12 muffin tray.
> Place the muffin tray in the middle of the oven and bake for 25 minutes or until the skewer comes out clean when inserted to the centre.
ENJOY! Bubba did
