Banana and honey muffins

Banana and honey muffins

These muffins are ideal for using up ripe bananas. You could also use other fruits that need using up, such as apples, cranberries, oranges, pears or even some tinned fruit!

They're extra delicious topped with sweetened crème fraiche, honey or banana crisps.

Recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C or gas mark 4.

  2. Sieve the flour and baking powder into a large bowl, and add in the sugar.

  3. Whisk the egg in a small bowl using a fork.

  4. Pour the milk, oil, honey and egg into the flour mixture and mix well to form a smooth batter.

  5. Stir in the banana pieces.

  6. Spoon the mixture into muffin trays. You can bake excellent muffins and remove them safely from pans without using baking liners as long you effectively grease your baking pan. 

  7. Bake for 20 minutes until the muffins have risen and are golden brown.

  8. Carefully take the muffins out of the tin and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
