- 2 cup (300g) self-raising flour
- 1/3 cup (50g) plain (all-purpose) flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
- 1/2 cup (110g) firmly packed light brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup (180ml) buttermilk
- 1/3 cup (80ml) vegetable oil
- 1 cup mashed banana
- 125 gram (4 ounces) cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup (40g) icing (confectioners') sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, for sprinkling
- 1Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F. Spray the holes of a 12-hole (⅓-cup/80ml) muffin pan with cooking oil.
- 2Use a flour sifter to sift the flours, cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda and sugar into a large bowl. Put the eggs, buttermilk and oil into a large jug; whisk them a little with a fork. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture. Add the banana and stir with a wooden spoon about ten times (not too many, as the batter should be lumpy).
- 3Spoon the mixture into the pan holes. Put the pan in the oven and bake about 20 minutes. Take the pan out of the oven and leave for 5 minutes. Carefully remove the muffins from the pan and put them on a wire rack, top-side up, to cool down.
- 4To make cream cheese topping, put the cream cheese and sugar in a small bowl; beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
- 5When the muffins are cold, use a metal spatula to spread them with topping; sprinkle with cinnamon.
You need 2 large overripe bananas for this recipe. Mash the bananas in a small bowl with the back of a fork. Never throw away bruised or blackened bananas; just put them in a plastic freezer bag and put them into the freezer. Overripe frozen bananas can be thawed and mashed to use when you're making muffins, banana bread, pancakes or smoothies.
