So I managed to make soapy muffins last week (not that I’ve ever really tried soap, but you know. It’s one of those flavours you just know…). I want cake, I can’t have “normal” cake (I know, my fault…), and soapy cake is only so good at dealing with the “I want cake” feeling. So I had another go with this recipe. This time it worked. The only thing I did differently was to switch out plain flour + raising agent to self-raising flour.
- 2 medium bananas, mashed
- 1 egg
- 125ml water/cream/milk – my preference is for cream, but that’s just me…
- 125ml vegetable oil
- 8oz (250g) self-raising flour
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries – a punnet; or any other berries or dried fruits that you like
How to Make (about a dozen)
Preheat an oven to 180 degrees C.
Mix together mashed bananas, egg, water, and oil in a large bowl.
Mix in flour until mostly smooth (you will still see lumps from the banana, but that’s okay!). Gently fold the blueberries into the batter.
Spoon into muffin cases and bake in the preheated oven until golden and the tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 30 minutes. Remove muffins from tins, and cool on a wire rack. Or just eat. Who wants to wait? Cakes straight from the oven are really yummy!
