banana and bran muffins

Who stole the muffin?

We always have a surfeit of bananas here – Riverford deliver them regularly, and I’m not a big fan.  We generally make banana bread or banana muffins, and I found a new recipe on the back of the bran flake box that I tried out yesterday for breakfast.

I suspect they would have risen better had I not left the egg out, but they tasted gorgeous, although they were too sweet.  I cut the sugar down from 225g to 200g, but I think I’ll try with less next time – far too much of a sugar rush for us

Makes 12 muffins

100g softened butter
200g demerara sugar
1 medium egg
3 bananas, peeled
150g natural yoghurt
225g plain flour
2 tsps baking powder
50g bran flakes
3-4 tbsp milk

Cream the butter and sugar in the food processor.

Add the rest of the ingredients, and blitz.

Divid mixture into a muffin tray (I use a silicon one), and bake for 25 minutes at gas 5, 375F/190C
