Today I am going to use this very sweet sounding honey Clara brought me from France to make Banana, Honey and Walnut Muffins. Ideal for Sunday tea.
Preparation time 15 minutes
Cooking time 25 minutes to 30 minutes
Total time: 40 minutes to 45 minutes
360g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Pinch of salt
100g golden caster sugar
200g chopped walnuts
3 medium eggs, lightly beaten
120ml vegetable oil
3 large bananas, mashed
1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, gas mark 5. Meanwhile, line a muffin tin with 12 large muffin papers and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt, then stir in the sugar, walnuts and muesli. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, oil, honey and bananas. Tip the wet ingredients into the dry. Mix until combined, but do not overwork. If the mix is a little stiff, add 1 tbsp milk.
3. Spoon the mixture into the muffin papers, filling them 3/4 full. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the muffins are well risen and coloured golden brown. To test if they are cooked in the middle, insert the point of a knife or a skewer: if it comes out clean, they are ready. If the muffins are still sticky in the middle, bake them for a few more minutes. Eat these on the day you bake them.
