Banana Muffins

Recipe submitted by Wifey on October 23rd, 2008

Banana muffins are super easy to make. Extra delicious straight from the oven, cut in half and serve with a little butter. For a more decadent muffin add a thick serve of the lemon cream cheese icing on top (like a cupcake).

Prep time:   20 minutes
Cook time:   10 minutes
Servings:   1 dozen

Ingredients:
1 super ripe mashed banana
3Tablespoons melted butter
4Tablespoons sugar
1 egg beaten
1/4 cup milk
1 cup white flour
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Lemon Cream Cheese Icing (optional)
60g cream cheese (about 4 tablespoons)
30g butter (about 2 tablespoons)
1 cup icing sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

Directions:
Add egg and sugar to the melted butter and beat.
Stir in the mashed banana and milk.
Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl then add to wet mix. Just gently mix until there are no lumps...don't over mix!
Spoon into greased muffin tin and bake at 220°C for 10 minutes. Test by stabbing centre of a muffin with a metal skewer or knife, if it comes out clean then it's cooked.

Allow muffins to cool before icing.
Icing is super easy just combine all ingredients and mix well.
