Last time when I baked apple muffin in bun tray they turn out like this , however this time I made banana muffin in a proper muffin tray. I had some frozen corn left, so thought of adding them to the muffin batter. They turn out soft and were very much enjoyed by my folks.
Now in this part of the world, spring season has started.So; I am doing up my spring cleaning sessions in home and also clearing up my draft posts. There are three more draft posts that needs some sunshine, will post them soon.
Yesterday, I was talking to my sister back home .She is busy with her new born and was complaining about the heat waves in the month of March. It is pretty hot back home and makes life difficult with a newborn baby.
Anyways there is one more week to my daughter's Easter holiday. Kids I tell you when they stay back home, you suddenly feel you have additional chores to do, I end up tidying and managing toys ,books ,clothes,colours/crayons etc more often than logging into my computer.
I feel there are so much better things to do than watching cartoons or TV during holidays. We are planning for some craft –works during holidays.We have plans to make treasure box and party caps.Lets see how things turn out.
Do you have any ideas regarding kid-crafts, then why not share it here, I will really appreciate it.
Banana Corn muffin
1 and ½ cup of all-purpose flour (Maida)
2-3 tsp of flour for coating corn
3 bananas pureed or mashed (I prefer mashed)
½ cup of frozen corn
¾ cup of sugar
1/3 cup of melted butter or cooking oil
1 tsp of vanilla extract
Cream together butter and sugar (I have made this with normal cooking oil, and trust me they turn out even more soft and light). Add egg and mashed bananas, mixing in well.
Add vanilla extract to the above.
In a microwave safe bowl, cook frozen corn with some water for 1-2 mints at high or till they turn out soft. Coat them well with flour. Keep aside.
In a separate bowl, gently sift flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda.
Now add the flour mixture and the egg+butter+sugar +banana mixture alternately up to 2 -3 times till the banana mixture is used up. Gently fold in cooked corn.
Meanwhile preheat the oven at 175 deg Celsius (fan assisted)
In a prepared muffin tray, scrap the batter in to each mould and bake it for 25-30 mints (place them in second shelf) or till a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle of muffin. Check for your make of oven and read the manual for proper baking time and temperature.
Cool it for 5-6 mints. Take out and enjoy.
You can whip up some cream and decorate it with some gems for the kiddos or enjoy plain with out cream.
You may use any normal cooking oil , I have made this one with sunflower oil.
You may use frozen blueberries in place of corn, but don’t forget to adjust the sweetness of the batter.
