Banana Muffins

Lucho started prep this month, and it has taken a bit of getting used to the new routine of pick ups and drop offs. plus there is cricket, and martial arts during the week... and I still haven't got used to stopping everything for that 3.30pm pick up.

Little Eva misses him a lot as now it's just me and her, and I'm infinitely less entertaining than her big brother, even if I take her to the movies to watch tangled.

On Wednesdays though, for a little while longer, Lucho is with me, and today we have made some banana  muffins for his lunch box.

And then, i made a lovely coffee to go with the fresh warm muffins... mmmmm yum!
Recipe was supplied by Amanda, the cook from his childcare centre.

Here's the recipe, they were so easy to make, and tasted like coffee shop ones:

Banana Muffins
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup caster sugar
1 egg - beaten
1 1/2 cups mashed bananas
1 3/4 cup self raising flour

Preheat oven to 200 degrees C and prepare muffin pans.
Blend butter and sugar, then mix in egg and bananas.
Gently fold in self-raising flour.
Spoon into muffin trays and cook for 20 - 25 minutes.

EASY! enjoy :)


  1. it is so hard getting used to it all of a sudden!
    Amelie has a 2.45 finish until the end of the week so hopefully that extra 45 min won't seem as rushed.

    I have been boring with her lunch box, don't want to her get used to baked goods yet. she still goes by kinder rules in her mind though which was a bit stricter on what they took.

    hope you are coping well, Lucho looks so happy to be going & sooo cute dressesd up!

  2. I've been always keen on trying banana muffins and never had the ocasion... but this recipe is so simple I have no excuses now. Thank you!


so creative!
