banana muffins

Who doesn't always have a few rotting bananas in the fridge? here is a recipe for some quick, easy and yummy muffins. you could add raisins, choc chips, nuts or peanut butter to spice things up a little. However they are delicious just as they are, plain and simple, with a hint of cinnamon. This recipe also makes the best banana bread EVER but we needed quick muffins on this occasion - when do you not need a quick muffin hit?

125g butter
180g brown sugar
3 ripe bananas
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
250g/2cups plain flour
1 tspn baking powder
3/4 tsp bicarb of soda
3 tblspns warm milk
 mix the butter and sugar until smooth
 mash the bananas and add them
 add the eggs and mix some more
 add the cinnamon, vanilla extract, cinnamon, flour, baking powder
mix the bicarb of soda with the milk and add to the mix
bake at 180 for 10-15mins. always take them out of the oven when they look almost done [too early is better than too late]- then they will be nice and moist. yum
i used some leftover batter to make a loveheart as i had been away from the family over night and had missed them and wanted to say i loved them... aahhhh
