I'm going bananas!

Posted by kel @ sweet treats at 9:55 AM
Well, rather my kitchen is going bananas.

Coles had our beloved bananas on special last week for $1.50/kg (a far cry from the outrageous prices caused by cyclones up north that saw us all on banana rations for about a year!) so I stocked up. You may have noticed I have been cooking a lot of banana recipes this weekend...and that would be why. I can't bear to have any bananas go to waste after not being allowed to have them for so long.

Today's breakfast was banana & chocolate chip muffins. Shock horror, it's not a cupcake! Oh well, at least it means I don't have to bother with icing. Hehe.

I borrowed the recipe from here.

I didn't have any chocolate chips on hand so I used a mixture of milk chocolate buttons and chopped couverture chocolate (so these are tres tres fancy muffins!) I also whacked in an extra banana for good measure.

I used texas-sized muffin liners so I got 6 giant muffins, but you would get about 12 cupcake sized muffins out of this mixture.

I'm eating one right now straight from the oven and it is delish!

Happy caking!

Oooooh I love the wrapping on that one in the picture! It looks fancy, yet it reminds me of the way they wrap fish-and-chips in newspaper. Did you do that or is that the liner?

I just can't even imagine what life was like without bananas for so long. Cool liner on the muffins.

Thanks guys!

Marilla - I bought the liners like that. I think they're pretty cute too :)
