Baking: Sweet

Banana & fruit muffins


500 ml (280 g) Snowflake cake flour
10 ml Snowflake baking powder
3 ml bicarbonate of soda
2 ml salt
125 ml (100 g) light brown sugar
40 g Safari pecan nuts, coarsely chopped
125 ml (75 g) Safari raisin & berry mix
2 extra-large eggs
45 ml milk
125 ml cooking oil
5 ml vanilla essence
250 ml (1 cup) ripe mashed bananas (about 3 medium)


 Sift flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt together. Add brown sugar, nuts and fruit mix.
2. Whisk eggs, milk, oil and essence together. Add to dry ingredients with mashed bananas. Mix lightly with a spoon until just combined. Don’t over-mix; mixture should still be lumpy.
3. Grease hollows of a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray. Spoon mixture into pan, filling each two-thirds full.
4. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for about 20 minutes or until golden brown and done. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
