Domestic goddess banana muffins

One of the first recipe books I used when I was growing up was my Mum’s copy of Nigella Lawson’s How to be a Domestic Goddess.  My love of all things banana always drew me to this recipe for scrummy (but quite healthy!) banana muffins.


What you’ll need*

1. muffins [wet] = 30g butter + 2 overflowing tbps golden syrup + 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2. muffins [banana]= 2 large very ripe bananas
3. muffins [dry] = 150g plain flour + 1 heaped tsp baking powder + 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda + 1/2 tsp cinnamon + pinch salt + (optional) porridge oats to top
