We have several very ripe bananas so we decided to make banana muffins tonight for tomorrow’s breakfast. Not a bad idea as we haven’t had this for some time and the bananas need not go to waste. I love this particular banana muffin as it has a soft-as-silk texture and really aromatic. Even my eldest gal who doesn’t like bananas loves this muffin. You may also add some  walnuts to the batter to give it a nice nutty crunch. Definitely a favourite with banana lovers !

P/S : To make a banana loaf, bake the batter in a tin and sprinkle some roasted walnuts on the top.
