    INGREDIENTS (makes 6 muffins or one 8×4 loaf)

    3 to 4 ripe bananas, smashed

    1/3 cup (75g) salted butter, melted and cooled

    1/2 to 1 cup (100g to 190g) brown or white sugar (use the smaller amount if you prefer less sweet, I normally use 100g)

    1 egg, beaten

    1 teaspoon (5g) baking soda

    Pinch of salt

    1 1/2 cups (190g) flour


    1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla essence

    1 teaspoon cinnamon

    Pinch of ground cloves

    1/2 cup (55g) walnuts

    1/2 cup (75g) raisins



    Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line muffin pan with paper baking cups, or butter the pan.

    Mix butter and mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl.

    Mix in the sugar, egg, vanilla and then the spices (if using).

    Sprinkle baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix.

    Add flour and mix. Fold in raisins and walnuts.

    Fill each cup right up to the brim with muffin batter.

    Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center of muffin comes out clean.

    Cool for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and serve warm or at room temperature.


    Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour for 8×4 loaf pan


    The muffins will keep for up to 3 days at room temperature, and frozen for up to two months.
