Martha and the Muffins

If they make it they will eat it. Fact. Banana and bran muffins. At first i made these to get some bran in to the wee woman, now i just make them because they are DEE-LISH.
I've adapted the recipie a bit so i'll give the proper one first and then write my adaptations underneath.
Get stuck in to the sugar before its all mixed in!


4.5oz butter
3.5oz brown sugar
4.5 fl oz milk
6.25oz wholemeal flour
3.5oz bran
1 egg
2 mashed bananas (the riper the better, the last ones i used were nearly walking and they were the best ones yet)
1teasp vanilla extract
1teasp baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt

Just cream the butter and sugar together, add the egg, (today our egg ended up on the dog), milk, vanilla and mashed bananas, then add all the dry ingredients and mix it up. Simples! Bake at gas mark 5 for about 20 mins.

I made these for the 3rd or 4th time today and used 2oz of white flour to make them a bit lighter and i also added about a teaspoon of cinnamon. Cos we love it!
Lick the mixture off every untensil you use!

Try to wait patiently till they're cooked!
You need a really big cup of tea to wash these down!
