Banana Muffins


Usually this part of Morocco being so close to Aourir has a plentiful supply of their small sweet bananas but we seem to have hit an off season. Our greengrocer had none when we arrived and Marjane had only some sourced in "Equator". Consequently I overbought and had a lot of over-ripe bananas on my hands. As we were expecting visitors I experimented with Banana Muffins. I was pleased with the results so here's the recipe.


250g/10oz plain flour
1teasp        baking powder
1teasp        bicarbinate of soda
1/4teasp     salt
110g/4oz    sugar
3or4             ripe bananas mashed to a pulp
90ml/3floz   milk/buttermilk/water
90ml/3floz   oil or cooled meted butter
1                   egg
optional ingredients
vanilla essence
90g chopped walnuts
90g choc chips

Sift the flour salt and raising agents into a bowl. In another bowl mixtgether the other wet ingredients, pour into the flour and mix.
Put into 12 muffin tins and bake in a preheated oven at 190C or gas mark 5 for about 20-25 mins.

Very good when warm but will keep 3 days in an airtight container. I've frozen some but not yet tried any defrosted.


  1. How did these go down? Ive made some today with walnuts. Not exact same recipe but very similar....will let you know how it goes x

    1. I made them with walnuts too. I thought they were good. Weama wasn't too keen, probably not enough sugar, but beloved ate more than one and he doesn't really do cake. I had them for breakfast for a couple of days which was a nice change
