Banana & Poppy Seed Muffins

Posted by Muriel Hedgcock

Everyone has their own favourite banana bread recipe. I love adding poppy seeds to mine and turning them into delicious banana & poppy seed muffins. The little poppy seeds emphasize the black little seeds in the centre of a banana and add new dimension to an ordinary banana bread recipe. Muffins are easier to handle, no slicing necessary and the muffin cases provide an instant little container.

Ingredients: Makes 12

125g butter
1 small cup organic sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence ( Or stevia)
2 eggs
2 cups self raising flour
1/2tsp bicarb
1/2 tsp salt
4-6 med ripe bananas mashed
25g poppy seeds

Cream Butter and sugar. Add vanilla. Add one egg at a time beating well after each addition.
Sift dry ingredients and add to mixture. Lastly fold in mashed bananas and poppy seeds.
Spoon into muffin cases and bake at 180 C for 25-35min.

For sliced banana garnish: Slice a whole banana and place each slice flat on a greased baking tray. Grill for 5-10 min. If to be eaten immediately put a blob of creamed honey on each muffin and place banana slice on top.

When freezing: Place baked banana slice firmly on top of muffin and freeze. Honey is not necessary.
