Baking: Banana Muffins

Banana Muffins

The banana muffins are made easily in a food processor. Caramel icing accompanies the banana muffins beautifully. The recipe for the banana muffins makes six large texas style muffins or twelve ordinary sized (the icing makes enough for just over half muffins or perhaps all if used sparingly) 

I made large texas size muffins which can be seen below.

Banana Muffins

3 Large Bananas
3/4  Cup Sugar
100 g Butter (melted but cooled) 
1 Large Egg
1 1/2 Cup Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

Caramel Icing

50 g Butter
4 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
5 Tablespoons Icing Sugar
1 Tablespoon Milk

1. Preheat oven 180C.

2. Place bananas, sugar, butter and egg in processor and blend thoroughly. Add flour, baking powder and soda and pulse until just combined. 

3. Divide into greased muffin trays and bake for 15 - 25 minutes depending on the muffin size.

4. Remove oven, turn out and allow to cool.

5. Place second measure of butter and brown sugar in a small saucepan and melt.

6. When butter is melted and sugar is dissolved, turn off heat and add icing sugar and milk. Whisk thoroughly ensuring there as no lumps.
7. Allow to cool and thicken, then ice cakes when desired thickness is reached.
