banana chocolate muffins

And after the db challenge comes the "sweet and simple bake" one! Usually the recipes are very good and , as the name says, very simple, making you feel you want to repeat them over and over (in italian we say they can became "your battle horses" cavalli di battaglia) The same happened with the muffins. Thank you Rosie and Maria providing us with all these goodies.

and here is the recipe ! Enjoy !

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins


3 very ripe bananas
125ml vegetable oil
2 eggs
250g plain flour
100g caster sugar
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
150g dark/milk chocolate (white chocolate or butterscotch chips/morsels)

Preheat the oven to 200ºC/180ºC fan oven/gas mark 6 and line a 12-bun muffin tin with muffin papers.

Mash the bananas and set aside for a moment.Pour the oil into a jug and beat in the eggs.

Put the flour, sugar, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder into a large bowl and mix in the beaten-egg-and-oil mixture, followed by the mashed bananas.

Fold in the chocolate morsels, then place equal quantities in the prepared muffin tin and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
