Banana and Pecan Breakfast Muffin



Is there a better way to start your day than having a fruity n nutty muffin?J
This one is also a handy recipe to get rid of those oven ripe bananas from your countertop!!

This recipe is adapted from my all time favorite book from Martha Day, I like to call it as my Baking bible
It has a magnificent collection of recipes from breads, muffins, cookies to tarts and pies…
Since I made it for breakfast, I added some flax seed meal, little more pecans and little less sugar.

 

Here goes the recipe
Adapted from Baking from Martha Day

150 gms Plain flour
1 ½ tspn Baking powder
50 gms butter
100  -120 gms Caster Sugar
1 egg
1 tspn Vanilla essence
3 medium Bananas mashed
60 gms Pecan chopped
4 tbspn Milk
1 1/2 tbspn flax seed powder [Optional]


Preheat the oven to 190 Degree
Sift the dry ingredients, flour and baking powder and set aside
In a bowl cream the butter and sugar together.
Add in the egg, vanilla essence and flax seed meal and beat till fluffy. Mix in the mashed banana and continue to beat for a few seconds.
Add in the pecans. With mixer on low speed, add the flour alternately with milk.

Spoon the mixture to muffin cups, filling them two thirds. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Let it cool on wire rack for 10 min and enjoy your breakfast muffinsJ
