2 cups S/R flour
1 cup oat bran (I used oatmeal)
3/4 cup caster sugar
60g melted butter
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 cup mashed rip banana (2 medium bananas)
Preheat oven 210degC (gas 190degC).
Brush a 12-hole muffin tin with melted butter or oil. (I only had 1x6-hole muffin tin, lined it with cases and baked in batchs)
Sift flour into a large bowl, add bran and sugar.
Make a well in centre.
Combine buttter, milk, eggs and banana and add to mixture.
Using a wooden or metal spoon stir until just mixed. (Don't over-beat, the batter should remain lumpy)
Spoon mixture into prepared tin.
Bake for 15 mins or until puffed and brown.
Transfer muffins to a wire rack to cool.
Suggested topping - beat 100g cream cheese with 2 tblsp icing sugar and 2 tsp lemon juice until light and fluffy. Spread over muffins and top with dried banana slices.
[i][/i]I felt they were a bit lacking on the sweet side but I think this was because I didn't wait until the bananas were ripe enough! Also a friend makes them with a little maple syrup which she reckons gives them a lovely mellow sweetness. There are none left though so they were scrummy enough.)
