Spongy Banana Muffins

Made a batch of these spongy banana muffins for the baby during one of the Chinese New Year holidays!

I quite like this recipe because it's fast to make, and no need to whip eggs separately. Because it's for my baby, I cut the sugar by quite a lot, and used demerara sugar instead. I also used plain flour instead of cake flour. So it's a little dense, spongy muffin. I was full after eating only one (with Nutella of course lol)!

My oven's temperature might be a little hot - they rose quite high while baking - so the muffins had a split top. 

It's a mildly taste muffins, which I felt was really good for my tot! :)

Spongy Banana Muffins (Recipe Adapted from Nasi Lemak Lover)
- 3 eggs ( large or A size), cold from fridge
- 120g caster sugar *I replaced with 45g of demerara sugar
- 180g ripe banana, mashed
- 150g cake flour
- 1/2 tsp Baking powder
- 1/4 tsp Baking soda
- 100g corn oil

1.  Preheat oven to 160C.
2.  Sift flour, baking powder & baking soda together. Sift twice & set it aside.
3.  In your electric mixer, beat the cold eggs, sugar, and banana at maximum speed till thick and stiff. (I used my Kenwood mixer high speed 5 for 5mins)
5.  Fold in flour & mix well. (I used the lowest speed to mix)
6.  Add in corn oil & mix well till batter is shiny & flowing.(lowest speed to mix)
7.  Pour into cupcake liners for about 90% full. Bake in the preheated oven at 160C for 45mins (middle rack, no fan).

Since the muffins tasted quite mild for us adults, I added in Nutella (used an apple corer and drizzled in Nutella) haha!!
