Blissful .... Banana Muffins

A rainy afternoon and I had some bananas left . I decided to make use of the bananas before they over ripen and turn black. Anyway dd has also been asking for banana muffins eversince Charlie of Hi-5 mentioned them in one of the cds that she had watched. I used the recipe that LeeLee had shared in m4m.
It's a really good recipe. The muffin is nice and soft and dd and I had a whale of a time decorating them with choco chips and koko crunch. Presenting them as ...Teddy bear banana muffins....

For the next batch I had sprinkle them with chopped walnuts.

Here's sharing the recipe with you ....

Plain flour 150 gm
Caster sugar 100 gm
Baking powder one and half tsp
Egg 1 no.
Salted butter 50 gm
Milk 75 ml
Vanilla essence 1 tsp
Bananas 3 nos. mashed
Walnuts 50 gm

Pre-heat oven to 190 degree C.
Sift flour, baking powder into a bowl.
In another bowl, whisk butter and sugar together.
Add in egg and vanilla and beat till fluffy.
Mix in the mashed bananas.
With the mixer at low speed, add in the flour alternating with the milk.
Spoon into prepared muffin cups filling them till two thirds full.
Bake until golden brown. (Mini muffins about 15 mins. and regular size ones require 20-25 mins.)

Hi, I chanced upon yr banana muffins recipe and would like to bake some. The recipe states 3 nos. of bananas. Pls advise how much is 3 nos after mashing? Is it equivalent to one cup? Also, what type of bananas is most suitable for baking? Thanks. Great site you have here. :)

Hi anonymous
I used the small bananas called "pang jiu" which were over-ripened. They gave the best fragrance. Sorry, I have no exact measurements. I just used 3 of them from the bunch I had.
