The Roman Catholic calendar of saints says that 20th of March is Santa Alessandra. Alessandra di Amiso was a marthyr, but sadly there's not much information about her.
Well anyway, to celebrate my Name Day and also the First Spring Day today I baked banana muffins or, as my bf called them, monkey muffins! :D
I made muffins only once in my life and it was a disaster (I accidentally put double amount of butter so they turned out quite greasy :P). But this time it was YUMMY SURPRISE, these muffins were the most moist and tasty I've ever eaten. You should really try these out.
I made a couple of muffins prettier with sugar decorations :)
Ingredients (12 muffins):
- 4 ripe bananas
- 3,5 dl flour
- 1,20 dl sugar
- 80 g melted butter
- 1 egg
- 1 ts baking powder
- 1 ts baking soda
- 1/2 ts salt
Mash the bananas with a fork or in a mixer. Melt the butter and let it cool down. Beat the egg slightly with a fork.
Put the mashed bananas in a bowl with the egg, sugar and melted butter and mix well. In another bowl mix the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix wet and dry ingredients together and pour into muffins cups (fill them about 2/3).
Bake in the oven at 180ºC for about 20 min. Check if they're ready with a toothpick. Let the muffins cool down before decorating and serving.
