Banana Honey Muffins

dsc_0851

Life is full of wonderful little surprises. One such is this banana honey muffin I made. I needed to have muffins for my continental breakfast spread I made for the Thali theme last month. I was in a tearing hurry because I need to finish cooking and clicking by 10 in the morning else the sun is gone and my pictures look worse than ever. I did not even have any fruit to whip a muffin with and so I searched for a simple vanilla muffin. One thing led to another till I came across this recipe which had honey in it. I have been wanting to bake with honey for a while and so I picked it. Then I remembered I had a couple of small sad looking bananas which my daughter refused to eat and the husband wanted to throw away. But the baker in me would allow no such thing and they also found their way happily into this muffin batter.

To cut a long story short, these are very easily made and turn out soft and delicious. So do try them when you are at the mercy of your sweet tooth. The recipe can easily be doubled. Actually, I have halved all ingredients except for the egg. Here goes –
