DIY - Banana Walnut Muffins

I know... I had been missing from the blog era for some time. Guess what? This could be the weekend I blogged the most... with a recent great achievement for myself... I felt great! This had been the very 1st time I baked muffins on my own, all on my own !!! Without pre-mixed flour, most importantly. The idea was all triggered from my over-ripped banana I just bought yesterday.

Yeah, I don't quite like pre-mixed flour and I don't like to bake. Most importantly I hate the cleanup and messy tool - the electrical mixer! I discover something new today, and browsed into an online recipe and found this.

Instead of just publishing the ingredient and simple step-by-step instructions, the writer provides most do and don'ts. It was good to learn and have 2 mixing bowl, one dry and one wet. I then read through those important points mentioned.. here I go. I some what did not follow strictly on ingredient measurement, in my heart - it's just an experiment.

Here's what I used...

Wet Ingredients:-
1 or 2 ripe banana
1 egg
100g melted butter
few drops vanilla essence
about 1 cup of milk

Dry Ingredients:-
200g flour
100g sugar
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup chopped walnut

  1. 1) Preheat oven
  2. 2) Smashed banana & add wet ingredients, mix them in the smaller bowl
  3. 3) Prepare dry ingredient in the larger bowl, mix them
  4. 4) Mix the wet into the dry bowl, continue mixing with a spoon
  5. 5) Place them into muffin cups, bake for 20min at 200 degrees

Here's what I got.. it was fluffy and nice. Best part from what I learned here, there is no need to use a electrical mixer. 2 spoons are good enough to mixed them all in one bowl.
