last-minute muffins (no eggs)

These are unbelievably quick to make... seriously they can be in the oven in about 4 minutes! they are not your gourmet muffin but they are brilliant if you need to make a snack or have cakes for friends in a hurry. they are not super sweet - more of a whole wheat and honey mid-morning muffin... chopped fruit of chocolate chips help to sweeten them up a little. The great thing is they don't require any eggs, which is how i came across them. i said i would make cakes for a coffee morning and late at night realised i had no eggs. these are really adaptable so you can add different fruit, nuts, chocolate chips. and they are very easy to make with kids.
4 tbsp milk
4 tbsp (100g) butter
4 tbsp honey
4 bananas
2 cups wholemeal self-raising flour
2 tsp baking powder
handful of dried chopped fruit, nuts or chocolate chips

1. preheat the oven to 180C
2. melt the milk, butter & honey in a saucepan over gentle heat. add the bananas and mash
3. pour the wet mixture into a bowl with the dry ingredients and mix gently - add more milk if too dry.
4. gently stir in any extra bits (fruit, nuts or chocolate). i added chocolate chips which melted nicely and swirled in to the mix. little miss m doesn't not like "bits"
5. spoon in to muffin cases (makes 12-18 muffins)
6. cook 180C for 20 minutes or until golden brown
