Banana and Chocolate Muffins

Banana and chocolate is a great combination of flavours which blend well in these muffins.

Ingredients:

  • 275g self raising flour
  • 110g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 250ml milk
  • 150g butter, cut into cubes
  • 3 bananas, peeled and cut into bite sized pieces
  • 125g dark chocolate, roughly chopped (I cut each square into quarters)

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Add the self raising flour, sugar and eggs into a bowl and mix.
  3. Put the milk and butter into a microwave proof jug and microwave for a minute and a half, or until the butter has melted.
  4. Add the milk and butter liquid to the bowl and mix well.
  5. Add the banana and chocolate pieces to the batter and make sure they're evenly distributed.
  6. Place 12 muffin cases into a muffin tin and divide the mixture evenly between them. As the chocolate and banana pieces will generally sink to the bottom of the bowl, I make sure each muffin gets a fair share by spooning a tablespoon of mixture into each muffin case before going back to the start and topping up each case.
  7. Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
  8. Leave to cool in the tin for about 10 minutes before removing from the tin.
  9. Once fully cool, store in an airtight container.

Makes 12 muffins.
