banana and choc chip muffins
- 2 cups (300g) plain (all-purpose) flour, sifted
- 1 tablespoon baking powder, sifted
- 1 cup (220g) caster (superfine) sugar
- 2 eggs
- ¼ cup (60ml) vegetable oil
- 1 cup (250ml) buttermilk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup mashed banana
- ¾ cup (135g) dark chocolate chips
- icing (confectioner’s) sugar, for dusting
- Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Place the flour, baking powder, sugar, eggs, oil, buttermilk and vanilla in a bowl and mix until just combined. Gently fold through the banana and chocolate chips.
- Divide the mixture between 12 x ½ cup-capacity (125ml) muffin tins lined with paper patty cases and bake for 25–30 minutes or until golden or cooked when tested with a skewer. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Dust with icing sugar to serve. Makes 12.
We substituted coconut milk + a splash of lemon juice for the buttermilk to remove dairy from the recipe, and Panera sugar for the super fine sugar as that’s all we had in the pantry. Thumbs up from all children. It was a great way to use up some sad bananas and a left over dark chocolate Easter bunny.
Great recipe. The only alteration was that I added a streusel on top before baking…OMG so good. Definitely a keeper recipe! I do have a photo of them in instagram if anyone would like to see them. Go to instagram and search @laura_justahomecook
Love Donna Hay recipes!!
really amazing muffins i love it!
I adjusted this recipe a little; I replaced vege oil with olive oil, plain flour & baking powder with self-raising flour, and buttermilk with 165mL coconut milk (a whole little can). I also reduced sugar to 3/4 cups and added fresh halved raspberries. My whole family loved them!
Classic base recipe! So fluffy and fail proof. Thanks Donna
Very nice. Although leave out half the sugar they’re far too sweet otherwise.
Kids absolutely loved these muffins, I made them with wholemeal flour and raw castor sugar, will definitely make these again
Great recipe. 10 out of 10! Muffins were amazing!
