Portions should be adjusted for children of different ages.

Here's how easy it is...
  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 190°C (170°C for fan ovens) Gas Mark 5.
  2. 2. Mix the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda in a bowl.
  3. 3. In another bowl, mix the eggs, milk, oil, mashed bananas, vanilla and a dollop of the caramel. Then, mix this gently into the flour until just combined, don’t beat hard (if it looks lumpy its right!).
  4. 4. Gently swirl through the rest of the caramel until rippled.
  5. 5. Place muffin cases in the tin and spoon in the muffin mix. Top with the chopped nuts, if you like them. Bake for about 20 minutes, cool slightly then tuck in!
  6. These muffins are scrumptious straight from the oven – perk them up the next day by microwaving for 10 seconds to warm the caramel.

    Hi Kris, baking these ahead of time and freezing them is a great idea. Defrost them completely before serving.

    I made the banoffee Muffin with White Spelt instead of self raising flour and it works and is much better for you,so Carnation lovers give it a try!

    Is it possible to use spelt whole grain instead of self raising?

    Hi Michael, we've not tried this but if you do let us know the results! We love healthy alternatives

    Lovely texture but decided I'm not keen on cooked banana!

    I found that the batter was too much for twelve muffins,probably get fourteen out of them. Also the muffins stuck to the cases. Maybe better when cold. Lovely taste though and not too sweet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best banoffee muffins ever I have made this recipe a couple of times and so has my 10 year old - really easy and perfect every time. I've also baked the mixture in a loaf tin and frozen slices for lunch boxes and unexpected visitors which works well. Nice with pumpkin seeds on top too. Proper comfort food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So tasty I’ve never been a lover of bannoffee anything, but these are just so tasty and so easy to make. I have to admit, I do add more bananas than it states in the recipe. Give them a go, you won’t be disappointed.
