Before we left for KL last Saturday, I threw into the freezer some food items which otherwise would have turned bad in the fridge by the time we came back this week. One of them is half a bunch of ripe bananas with which I had already planned to bake muffins. That's exactly what I did with them this morning, before I forget about them....
I used the recipe shared by Roz @ Homekreation which she called her Best Ever Banana Muffins. After baking them, I understand why... they are simply yummy. Light & fluffy, they rose quite nicely even when I fill the cups almost to the brim, unlike some recipes which cause the muffins to overflow onto the pan. Only thing, I find them rather sweet, maybe because the bananas were very ripe. So the next time I use this recipe, I'll adjust the amount of sugar used.
