Afternoon delight - banana and honey muffins

I have a trusty muffin mix that I am always re-working and changing and adding different flavours to. I used the same basic principles for the fig cakes with chai syrup. I had a couple of really ripe bananas so I thought I'd make some banana muffins and add some delicious honey from the markets.

Grab your muffin tray and spray with an oil spray or pop in cases. Pre heat oven to 200C. In a bowl add 220g self raising flour and 1/2 cup caster sugar. mix through.
In a seperate bowl add 1/2 cup of light oil, 1/4 milk, 1 egg lightly beaten, 1/4 cup plain yoghurt and 1-2 tablespoons honey. Mix to combine.
Grab 2 over-ripe bananas and slice 1/2 of one very thinly into slivers (you'll pop these on the top for decoration) mash the remaining banana and add to the flour along with the wet batter. Mix until combined. Don't overwork the mix. Spoon into muffin tray. Top with banana slices, add a sprinkle of brown sugar. Bake for 18 - 20 mins. makes 12.

A quick afternoon pick-me-up!


  1. Hi!
    I'm Sally and I'm your newest follower! I'm 13 and live in NSW, Australia.I already love your blog. It has some truly awesome recipes. This is my pretty random suggestion... You should go on Master Chef!

  2. Hi Sally,
    Thanks for your note. I'm glad you like the blog. It's something that I've wanted to do for a long time. As for Masterchef, I love watching it but I don't think I'm really that clever with food. I just make what I like.
    Thanks again,
