After 2 months I finally get my muffin trays out to bake these little goodies. Highlights of my trip to SFO
were getting these muffin trays and liners. And almost everyday I used to think when I will finally make the muffins as I so longed. I finally got my mojo working!
If I have ever created a recipe on the fly this must be it. With tomorrow being a holiday for kids, I knew I need not hurry up with the usual things. I left them to play and with the 15 minutes I had on hand, I decided I was going to bake. With an occasion coming round the corner I had to decided what to make. I will get around talking about it. But for now I haven't decided if I am going to bake these or do something else.
I was happy I hadn't got the kids attention but it was it was short lived. Soon all of them crowded me and pestering me what I was making. When I said it was going to be a Muffin, that got their attention and wouldn't budge away. I finally had to shoo away on some pretext.
These Eggless Muffins tasted divine.
I had got all the ingredients hoping to bake my Eggless Blackforest Cake
. My colleague wanted to bake an eggless version and when I suggested one can bake in a microwave, more over using a cola, she wouldn't believe. She finally made it and immensely enjoyed it. Hearing her feedback, I was again tempted to bake the Blackforest cake. But somehow I knew I was going to end up making a Muffin.
I didn't have a cola on hand, so the next best thing would be a Banana. Unfortunately even that wasn't to be seen. Finally got one Morris Banana from Amma and set on to bake these. It hardly took 5 - 6 mins for the whole process to get done. Next 5 minutes the Muffins were baked and ready.
I wanted to retain the banana taste, hence didn't add cocoa, which I might have been otherwise so tempted to add. I didn't have the energy to make any frosting and moreover the batch got over.
Aren't they cute?
These are the things I used, 1 morris banana, chocolate chips, Condensed Milk, flour,
Chop the banana and puree
Add about 1/2 cup of milk to the banana and pulse again.
For 1 cup of all purpose flour, I took about 1/4 tsp Baking soda, a pinch of cooking soda
Melted 50 gms of butter and added abt 150 gms of condensed milk (could be little more also)
Mix both the butter and condensed milk together.
Then add the flour to the liquid.
Now goes the banana puree, see that black colour? It goes off once you mix it well.
Finally add the chocolate chips.
These are the mini muffin liners I got
Place the liners on the muffin tray,
Pour about a spoon of the batter into the cups.
Micro for 2 minutes.
This is after the first minute is over.
This is after 2 minutes is over.
This was the second batch.
