Had some over ripe bananas with me and had nothing to do with them. So, I took Nigella Lawson’s book out and found this wonderfully aromatic recipe. My whole house is smelling like a mixture of caramelized bananas and brown sugar, lovin’ it!

Wanna make banana muffins but don’t know what are ripe bananas well, they look like this.

Got this recipe from Nigella Lawson’s book “KITCHEN”. She’s more than a wonderful cook. And her muffins are even better. Not sweet enough for my oh-so=sweet sweet tooth so, I iced them with glace icing hehe You should too.

Brown sugar———————- 100g

  3. Sieve together flour, cocoa powder and baking soda and set aside.

  5. Once done, now add the sifted flour mix. to the banana and egg mix and beat lightly.
