Eggless Banana Muffins

Eggless Banana Muffins2

Muffins or the so called cup cakes in India have always fascinated me. I still remember the days when I used to carry them to school in my pink hippo lunch box for snacks break ;)

Since the day I got into the kitchen, I have always wanted to bake them at home. My dream came true today. :)

I love bananas so much and the flavor of it in anything will make me enjoy it to the most. This pretty looking muffins are no exception. The egg-less factor made it all the more interesting for people at home too. :)

Mom and grandma enjoyed having them :) I am truly elated today!!!!

Eggless Banana Muffins5

Ingredients:

Banana - 4
Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp
All purpose flour (Maida) - 1 1/2 cup
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Melted butter - 1/3 cup
Baking soda - 1 tsp
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Cashews - 5
Salt - a pinch (avoid this if you are using salted butter)

Eggless Banana Muffins3

Method:

Mash ripe bananas well. Chop the cashews and reserve two tsp of it separately. Combine maida, baking soda and baking powder and sift it.

In a bowl, combine the melted butter and sugar. Add the mashed banana and vanilla essence and mix ones. Now add the sifted dry ingredients, chopped cashews and mix just enough to combine everything. Do not over mix. The consistency should be like thick batter.

Preheat oven to 375°F or 190°C. Line the muffin tray with liners.

Fill muffin cups upto 3/4th and top it with some chopped nuts that you reserved.

Bake it for 20 mins at 375°F or 190°C.

Truly yummylicious egg-less banana muffins are ready to eat :)

This quantity makes 12 soft muffins.

Enjoy making it just like what I did ;)

I use a LG microwave oven with convection mode to bake. It works really well in convection mode. You can preheat just like a normal oven and use metal molds in that mode. Use the high rack that comes with your oven to bake cakes and muffins.

Note:

Choose well ripen bananas for making these. Green ones are the best.

Since bananas turn brown, mash them just before use for best results.

If your banana is kind of dry and if your batter turns too thick, just add few tsp of water and mix well to bring to the right consistency.

I love cakes and muffins being small babies of cakes are lovable.

We get small cups of cakes that resemble to the ones you made but I am not sure they are the children of the american baking.

so you have learnt cooking muffins. That is great. I will have to purchse a microwave oven to try this. So lets shift this to a duration of 4-5 months.

The muffins look fluffy and delicious. Kudos Nithya!!!
