Deliciously indulgent Banana and Chocolate soul food at its finest.
I got the inspiration for this weeks baking creation, and the core recipe from one of the blogs I follow on a regular basis, The Londoner. You can find the original recipe for Rosie’s banana and Nutella swirl muffins here which are truly delicious and worth a try if you (like me) enjoy the little indulgences baking can bring.
I do have an insatiable sweet tooth though… So after making Rosie’s muffins, I couldn’t help trying again but this time adding in a little more naughtiness (as per) to make it extra calorific and enticing!
My conscience is sat on my hips right now tutting and knowing I will regret this second helping as I write… but it tastes good so hell to it!
My slightly adapted recipes calls for:
250g self raising flour
160g granulated white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 large eggs
113g melted unsalted butter
3 large ripe bananas
1 vanilla pod, split and scraped
4 tbsp Nutella
1 bag of Maltesers
Sieve the flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon into a bowl. In a separate bowl, lightly beat the 2 eggs and mix in the melted butter, mashed bananas and vanilla. Once combined, pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl. Using a wooden spoon, stir it all together until just combined. Divide equally between your muffin cases.
Lightly squish the Maltesers, plop a spoonful of Malteser mash and another teaspoon of Nutella in the middle of each muffin and swirl.
Pop them in the oven at 180 degrees for about 20mins (dependent on ovens) until they are all golden brown and delicious. The waiting is the hardest part of this bake!!
