Banana and lemon muffins

This is 12th banana muffins recipe. This time with lemon. My children like them a lot. The cake was soft, spongy sweet thanks to bananas with lovely lemon fragrance. The recipe comes from 'Let's cook. 52 cakes, bakes and chocolate.'

Ingredients for 7-11 muffins:
  • 70g banana chips + 11 whole ones for decoration
  • 140g flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 lemon
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 5 tbsp milk
  • 1 egg
  • 50 ml oil
  • 3 ripe bananas
Chop the banana chips and place them in a bowl. Add the flour, baking powder, sugar and freshly grated lemon zest. Combine them together and set aside. 

Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper cases. 

In separate jug whisk the egg. Add the oil and milk and combine them together. Set aside.

With a for or potato masher mash the bananas. Stir in one tablespoon of lemon juice. 

Pour the wet ingredients and the bananas into a bowl with dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.

Spoon the batter into paper cases, 3/4 full. Bake for 20 minutes until well risen and gold. Keep them in muffin for a few minutes then transfer to the wire rack. While they cooling down prepare the icing.

Ingredients for icing:
  • 4 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp lemon juice
Place the icing sugar in a bowl add one tablespoon of lemon juice and stir well. If the mixture is too thick add additional tablespoon of lemon juice and stir again.
When the muffins are cooled down spoon the icing over each muffin top and decorate them with hole banana chips.
 Enjoy !
