family noms: banana maple muffins

arty is very much enjoying helping in the kitchen at the moment, so we're making a point of doing a little bit of baking each week so that he can participate.

this week, we had an overripe banana sitting on the bench, so i decided to use it in whatever we made.

this recipe is very easy, and involves many opportunities for enthusiastic young helpers to participate (sifting, pouring, stirring, mashing).

2 cups self raising flour
1 cup sugar
pinch salt
2 small eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup canola oil
1 tbsp vanilla extract

method

  • preheat oven to 180 degrees

  • sift flour into a medium mixing bowl, and add sugar and salt
  • in a jug or smaller bowl, combine eggs, milk, canola oil, and vanilla
  • pour wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients, and stir til thoroughly combined
  • spoon mixture into cases
  • in a separate bowl, mash the banana with the maple syrup
