bananalicious!

19 Feb

i baked again yesterday! wanted to give those banana muffins a second chance, and you know what, i’m glad i did, because they turned out delicious! moist and banana-y, with the nutella heart. i baked them for less time, and added a fourth banana- that seemed to fix the dryness that bothered me at my first attempt.

yummy banana nutella muffins

here’s the recipe, i got it online, and modified it a little:

ingredients:

-1/2 cup of butter (or margarine)
-2 eggs
-4 medium bananas ( they should be very ripe, almost brown, so that they are sweet and soft)
-1 teaspoon vanilla (liquid)
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla-sugar
-1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (or baking powder)
-50 ml milk (i used skimmed, you can use whichever you prefer)
-1/2 cup of sugar (white or brown)
-1 1/2 cups of flour
nutella (optional)

method:

– cream butter, sugar,vanilla-sugar and the liquid vanilla (this is best when the butter is already very soft or molten)
– add eggs separately, beating well
– mash the bananas and add them to the mixture. beat well until everything is smooth
– dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in the milk, and add the flour and the milk alternatively
– grease the cupcake mould or insert papers, and fill with the dough. if you want to add the nutella hearts, fill the moulds halfway with batter, then put a dollop of nutella in the center of each. cover with the rest of the batter until the moulds are full (or almost full).
– bake for about 20-25 mins on 180°C (depending on your oven, test with a toothpick)
– let cool for a bit

fill halfways, then put a dollop of nutella in the center
