Look at my muffins…

My muffins rose up into the heady heights at the top of the oven – lordy, they did look mighty fine.

You cannot, quite, see how extraordinarily massive they are – but trust me they were whizz bangers – being of a healthy temperament – they were sweetened not with sugar, hell no, but with banana, blueberries and a squirt of bee juice.

Sadly, los ninos, did not appreciate this fruit-filled humdinger.

In the heat the blueberries had burst and their juice had stained the muff insides with streaks of a green deportment…sadly I had to eat the majority…

So if you fancy a green stained muffin here is the recipe, you could, of course, leave out the blueberries – or just serve them to adults who won’t, presumably…complain about colour?

Banana & Blueberry Muffins

250 g Plain Flour
2 tspns Baking Powder
1/2 tspn Ground Cinnamon
2 Bananas mashed
Handful or so of Blueberries
3 tbspns Honey
3 tbspns Vegetable Oil
1 Egg
185ml Milk

Cinnamon, sugar and oats to garnish


Preheat your oven to 180C. Sift the dry ingredients into a bowel – add a pinch of salt. Mash up the banana and add to the dry ingredients, gently stir through the blueberries. Whisk the honey, oil, egg and milk together before adding to the dry ingredients – combine.

Spoon into muffin cases and sprinkle the tops with a mix of cinnamon, sugar and oats – bake for twenty minutes – serve with a large cup of milky coffee immediately – bon appetit!



  1. Mad Maison – merci for your comment – well indeed, mine normally look teeny – and never rise at all – and never, never actually LOOK like muffins – hence my utter pride in these here muffs!!

  2. They look mighty fine muffins if I may be so bold! Alas, every baking encounter I have with my muffins ends in a rock cake texture and appearance. I may have a go with these though, thanks for the recipe! x
