Banana muffins

Banana muffins are a lovely breakfast or tea time snack. They are perfect to use up those overripe bananas  (don't throw them away!). In this recipe I have used muscovado sugar but you can use white sugar. 


250 gms plain flour
110 gms dark muscovado sugar
50 gms butter softened
2 eggs
2 ripe bananas
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp nutmeg powder
125 ml milk
pinch of salt


Preheat oven to 180 C

Mash the bananas

Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt and nutmeg

In another bowl whisk together the eggs, butter, sugar, vanilla extract and milk. Add the bananas and mix. 

Add the dry ingredients and stir roughly using a fork. Don't over mix - you want the batter to be lumpy. 

Distribute equally in muffin cups.

Bake for 20-25 minutes

Allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cook for a further 5 minutes. 




  1. I make banana cake or bread a lot of the time, but not thought to make individual muffins. Thanks for the inspiration!
