  • Mix fresh bananas with soft caramel to create delicious banoffee muffins, perfect for parties, lunchboxes or just as afternoon snacks.


    • 275g self-raising flour
    • 1tsp baking powder
    • 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
    • 2 eggs
    • 150ml (¼pt) milk
    • 5tbsp vegetable oil
    • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
    • 1tsp vanilla extract
    • 397g can caramel
    • 55g chopped pecan nuts (optional)
    • You will also need:
    • 12 hole muffin tin and muffin cases


    • Preheat the oven to 190°C, 375°F or Gas Mark 5.

    • Place the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl and mix well.

    • In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, milk, oil, mashed bananas and vanilla. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined, without beating.

    • Drop spoonfuls of the caramel into the mixture, gently swirl through, but don’t mix it in – its nice to see little pockets of caramel bubbles in the finished muffins.

    • Place muffin cases in the tin and spoon the mixture into the cases until quite full. Top with the chopped nuts, if using.

    • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes and eat fresh and warm.

    Top tip for making Banoffee muffins

    These muffins are delicious straight from the oven – perk them up the next day by microwaving for 10 seconds to warm the caramel
