G’day Beach Cottage ladies, Happy Easter, we are having lovely weather here & I have been making muffins.
I can’t really speak too much today though other than to say. Try these muffins.
They are probably the super easiest muffins you may ever find in the world.
With cinnamon and banana.
And then you drizzle them with maple syrup.
Just to add a bit more, you know, squidgy bits to your thighs.
Your children and husband will also come in after a long morning surf lifesaving on the beach to a house smelling like cinnamon, home-baked heaven and you my little Beach Cottagers will get super-heavy extra mummy brownie points when really all you did was quickly stir, mix and spoon…in one bowl ;-)
I got this recipe from a magazine that I read in the dentist’s waiting room about a year or so ago…I was one of those people that considered stealing the magazine, couldn’t do that, was about to rip out (quietly) just the page and then slip it into my bag when I remembered that in my pocket was the little gadget that has about changed my world…hello iphone. So I snapped the recipe and went in to get my teeth cleaned. While thinking the whole time as things whirred and sucked in my mouth, the delight of muffins drizzled with bad stuff.
This recipe called for banana & cinnamon muffins with the top cut off, stuffed with icing and drizzled with very sweet things…as a lover of a muffins, really it looked like muffin heaven.
However, it kinda amalgamated more into what you see below here…sometimes I use the icing/frosting too, but to be honest not too often as it is very very sweet like that..
…but want a muffin for Morning Tea with just a touch of special? This my friends will tick the box.
While you make them, a vintage mixing bowl might go down well
as will a wooden spoon - this is a throw it in and mix the old-fashioned way easy banana muffin recipe
you don’t need any fancy mixers for this…you need a bowl, a spoon and your arm…
Easy Banana Muffin Recipe
2 1/2 cups Self Raising Flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup milk
3/4 cup mashed banana
1. Cream butter & sugar in bowl
2. add eggs, cinnamon, vanilla, milk, banana
3. sift in flour
4. mix to combine
5. spoon into cases
6. bake 200C 15 mins
Once cool cut the top off your muffin and drizzle with maple syrup…pop the lid back on and drizzle some more
**Beach Cottage Recipe Notes : the original recipe for these specified that this made six…that gives you one big muffin, I do 12…as you will
I add vanilla but easily omitted if you are not keen
…lovely (discovered by Miss Beach Cottage) crumbled into breakfast fruit & yoghurt
pls. note the additon of sifting into my life…introduced to me by Miss Beach Cottage, no life is not to short to sift ;-)
Oh and it’s always a good idea to add in a vintage style milk bottle…makes a muffin all the better don’t you think ;-)
OK, that’s it from the beaches…we are doing painting, going to the beach AND going to look at a new addition to the Beach Cottage Crew…begins with a P and ends with a Y….one guess?
Oh and did I mention make these muffins. You will die.
