Choc-chip raisin banana muffins


I was staring at the bunch of over ripe bananas contemplating whether I should bake a cake with them, then my lazy bones got over me ....... yes, muffins!  Simple, less work and naturally less washing up!









Mmmm.... soft, moist flavourful muffins just right for afternoon tea!  Super-duper easy to make and this is how I did it .....

Ingredients
  • 7 oz plain flour
  • 1 lb over ripe bananas, mashed
  • 4 oz  sugar  (2 oz caster and 2 oz brown)
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1  tsp baking powder
  • 1/2  tsp baking soda
  • 1/4  tsp salt
  • 2 oz choc-chips
  • 1 oz raisins
  • 8  Tbsp canola oil
  • 1  tsp vanilla
Method
  1. Sift flour with salt, baking powder and baking soda into a mixing bowl.
  2. Add in the sugars and mix well.
  3. Lightly beat up the eggs and add in the oil, vanilla followed by the mashed bananas.  Mix well.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture, add in the choc-chips and raisins.
  5. Mix till just combined and batter is thick and chunky.
  6. Spoon batter into the paper lined muffin pan.
  7. Bake in preheated oven @ 180deg.C on the middle shelf of the oven for about 20 to 25 mins.
  8. Test with skewer inserted in the centre till it comes out clean.
  9. Place on a wire rack to cool for 5 mins. before removing the muffins from the pan.
  10. Serve warm or at room temperature. 
  11. Makes 12 muffins.

Pandan Coconut Milk Bread ~ 香兰椰奶面包

  I made  this bread using the Wool Roll bread recipe and just substituted milk with coconut milk, added a bit of pandan paste and instead of melted butter, I used cooking oil.  Feel free to use coconut oil if you have it at hand.  This bread is soft and light and it stayed fresh till after the third day in a container, at room temperature.  You can eat it on its own accompanied with a cup of hot kopi O or slathered with butter and in my case, peanut butter.

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

Mixed Fruit Bread ~ 杂果面包

Homemade bread is always more nutritious than those bought from the supermarkets.  For one I don't add any bread improver or preservatives to my bread making.  Store bought ones may be fresh but they have loads of preservatives added to prolong their shelf life.  When I make bread I can control the ingredients that I want to put into my bread and I can customise the flavour and I find that kneading the dough can be quite therapeutic too! Mixed Fruit Bread  ~    杂果面包 Ingredients 290 gm high protein flour 10 gm wholemeal flour 30 gm sugar 3.1/2 tsp milk powder 18 gm butter (cubed) 1 tsp seasalt 100 gm dried mixed fruits (I used cranberries, sultanas and golden raisin) 1 whole egg beaten wtih 1/2 tsp water, for egg wash 1/8 to 1/4 tsp cinnamon  (optional) 2 tsp dry yeast             ) 170 ml warm water     )  Yeast mixture 1 Tbsp sugar               ) Method Add yeast and sugar to warm water, stir and let it set for about 5 to 8 mins. till foamy.
