Rejoice at the sight of a ripe banana

Isn't it amazing the way life takes you by surprise? And that too when you least expect it!

It was just another ordinary day until I spotted a ripe banana (Please note "ripe" and not rotten).

For some odd reason I thought we were out of bananas so I was absolutely thrilled to see this particular ripe one because I wanted to make banana muffins. The recipe I followed is from here.

Banana Cinnamon Muffins

2/3rd cup sugar

1/2 cup oil

2 eggs

2/3rd cup mashed ripe banana

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

1 & 2/3rd cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder

Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C.

Grease muffin tray with oil or line with paper cups. I would advise using paper cups as washing the muffin/cupcake tray is not an easy job!

Mix flour, soda, salt and cinnamon powder.

Beat sugar, oil, eggs, vanilla essence and the mashed banana. Add in the flour mixture. Beat or mix till smooth.

Divide batter equally among the muffin cups. Bake for 20 minutes.

Serve warm at breakfast or tea time.

This recipe makes 12 regular sized muffins.
