These easy-to-make spiced banana muffins1 make a nice treat for winter tea, and are a great recipe for using up overripe bananas.

This recipe makes 12 muffins.

Dry Ingredients

  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 115g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground all spice
  • pinch of salt

Wet Ingredients


Mash the bananas with a fork. Melt butter and allow to cool. Using a wooden spoon:

  • Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl
  • Mix wet ingredients in another bowl
  • Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients
  • Mix well until all ingredients form a smooth batter
  • Add mashed banana and mix well

Fill muffin cases to ¾ full with the mixture. (Note there will be small lumps of banana!)

Bake at 190°C until golden brown, for 15 to 20 minutes depending on the size of case used. To check if cooked, pierce one muffin with a skewer. If the skewer comes out clean your muffins are ready to eat.

Tip: This recipe can be altered to taste; use less spice or try adding raisins and a drop of rum! 
1These are American cake-style sweet muffins, not English breakfast bread-style muffins.
