Bananalicious Banana Muffins

I baked a banana cake once, long, long ago. The recipe was complicated, required a lot of ingredients, and the result was mediocre. I swore off banana cakes for years since then, until I found this recipe. This recipe is so unbelievably and easy the result was great! Fluffy, moist and light, exactly the kind of banana cake texture that I like. I am sure muffins and cakes are two different thing altogether, but nonetheless, this recipe is a keeper. I sprinkled some chocolate chips on top because everything taste better with chocolate. This muffins is best made when bananas are abundant. I deliberately added more bananas than the recipe required and they turn out even nicer and full of aromatic banana flavour.

  1. Failsafe?
    I want to try it. Bake bake! :P

  3. Очень интересно! Судя по некоторым откликам ....

  4. [...] persimmons lingers in the baked good, and the texture of the muffins is very similar to the banana muffins that I’ve experimented with earlier. Spongy, airy and lots of dominant fruit flavour. [...]
