Banana Maple Muffins

banana maple muffins

I've made these muffins to have at hand in the freezer for our prospective kitten buyers. So far, they hold up very well. I de-frost them and heat them slightly in the microwave, and they really go down a treat with tea or coffee. You could serve them for a luxurious weekend breakfast (if you're not so concerned with kitten buyers, and I imagine most of you are not), drizzled with more maple syrup.

The recipe is, like so many other muffin recipes I try, from Dagensmuffin.se (The Daily Muffin - sorry, in Swedish.)

Banana Maple Muffins
Makes about 15

5 dl (2 cups) flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1,25 dl (1/2 cup) sugar
300 ml soured milk (buttermilk or a neutral yogurt would work fine)
1 egg
3 tbsp maple syrup
3 tbsp vegetable oil
3 bananas, sliced

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Mix all the dry ingredients - flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and cinnamon - in a bowl. In another bowl, mix the soured milk with the egg, maple syrup and oil, and the sliced bananas. Carefully mix everything together, and dollop into muffin cases. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until lightly golden and no longer sticky.

OK, so today was a really icky day. I'd been feeling 'so-so' all day but after reading this recipe and knowing I had EXACTLY 3 bananas to use up before the went bad, I went to the kitchen immediately and baked these things. They are delicious!! I, of course, whoofed two down as soon as they were out of the oven!! Thanks for cheering me up - and getting me motivated again. I can't help but think these muffins aren't too bad for you either since they don't have the usual pound of butter.
