WHY YOU WILL LOVE THIS RECIPE

Ideal Breakfast Muffin | You can have your coffee and muffin together in one go with this yummy recipe. Banana Muffins make for a great morning sweet treat that will also give you some energy and nutrients to kick start your day.

Super Easy | Muffins are a fantastic easy bake that you can have ready to eat in under 30 minutes. The trick to the perfect muffin top though does require leaving the batter to rest for an hour, but it’s not essential so you can choose whether you have the patience for that or not.

Staple and easily accessible ingredients | This recipes uses simple ingredients that will more than likely already be in your kitchen ready to go. Much like banana bread, this is the ideal recipe to make when you want to use up some old left over bananas. The recipe is also adaptable meaning if you don’t like coffee, even though it’s not overpowering, you can simply remove it from the recipe.

HOW TO GET THE PERFECT MUFFIN TOP RISE

A signature muffins has a distinctive rounded top which almost overflows over the edge of the muffin case. This is what we call the Muffin Top.

In many recipes the batter is decanted straight into the cases and baked straight away, however in this recipe I ask you to leave the batter to rest for an hour. In doing so you let the baking powder and bicarbonate of soda get to work before they’re introduced to heat.

You’ll notice after an hour that the mixture is bubbly and light so work with it gently as you move it into your muffin cases so you don’t deflate any of the air that’s been created.

TOOLS YOU WILL NEED

If you’re a regular baker then you’re likely to have most of the tools required to make these muffins already in your kitchen cupboards. There are no fancy ingredients either so this is a perfect recipe to have on hand when that baking urge strikes. Here are the key tools I use for this recipe below;
