Chocolate banana muffin

It's been years since I last bake. I always wanted to bake 'something' but kept procrastinating and in a blink of time, oh.. I'm married, with an infant! Haha.. How time flies..

My baking mojo came back few days ago, when I stepped into an shop helping my mum to get a block of butter. I saw nice papercups with cute and fancy prints. I MUST BAKE SOMETHING.

So yesterday I went back to that shop to get some papercups - those I spotted the other day were all sold out (??) so I settled with polka and heart-prints instead. Went back and search for recipes online. Coincidentally I have some bananas at home, so yea...

Banana & Chocolate Muffins


275g plain flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large bananas, about 450g
100g brown sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
50ml semi-skimmed milk
75g unsalted butter, melted and cooled
50g chocolate chips
some raisins and walnuts

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180degC (350 degF). Line muffin pans with paper muffin cases.
  2. Sieve together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a mixing bowl. Mix in the chocolate chips. Set aside.
  3. Peel the bananas and mash with a fork in a bowl. Add in brown sugar, egg, milk and melted butter. Mix until well combined.
  4. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients. With a wooden spoon or a spatula, gently fold all the ingredients to form a wet batter. Stir gently, using only a few strokes and mix until the flour are incorporate into the batter. DO NOT Over mix. The batter should appear lumpy.
  5. Spoon batter into paper muffin cases. Bake for 20mins until muffins turn golden brown or a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  6. Let cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or cold.

With leftover Nutella, I decided to spread a generous layer on top and I tell ya, it tasted SINFULLY DELICIOUS! ;)

Not very pleasant looking though, but taste good! Haha, yea... I'm pretty satisfied with the end result ;)
