French Food Friday - Nutella and Banana Muffins


Bonjour mes belles,

What a week! This week Maison No.20 turned 8 years old and I was not sure what kind of birthday cake I would make to mark the occasion.

I mentioned to our guests that I was keen to try out a nutella and banana muffin recipe. Our young and adorable Irish guest thought that this would be a good idea....end result I made them and our guests loved them.

I hope that you do too.

Nutella and Banana Muffins

230 grams (1 3/4 cups) self raising flour
150 grams (3/4 cup) granulated white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 large free range eggs, lightly beaten
113 grams (1/2 cup) melted unsalted butter
3 large very ripe bananas, mashed

1 banana for decoration (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tbsp Nutella, at room temp

1. Pre-heat your oven to 180C or 350F. Line your muffin tins with paper liners. 

2.In one bowl combine your flour, sugar & salt. 
3. In another combine your eggs, butter, mashed bananas & vanilla.
4. Tip one into the other and gently fold together. Note the  batter should be mixed, but look a bit lumpy. 
5. Divide your mixture between your cases, each one should be just about half full. 
6. Take a teaspoon of slightly warm Nutella and pop a blob  onto the centre of each muffin. Use a cocktail stick or skewer to swirl the Nutella into the muffin without turning the whole thing chocolatey.Repeat with each muffin.
7. Slice a banana and place a slice on top of each muffin. This is optional and purely for decoration purposes.
8. Place the muffins onto the middle shelf of your oven and bake for 20-25 mins, when they’re done you should be able to stick a skewer into the centre and have it come out clean. 

bon vendredi à tous, Leeann x

  1. I admit that I have been known to slather a bit of Nutella on a piece of banana and gobble it up. I will most definitely try making these muffins !
