This is my favourite banana muffin recipe and I just adore this orange icing to finish it off. Sometimes I use lemon for a change.
2 cups (250g) self raising flour
2/3 cups (155g) caster sugar
75g fine oat bran
2 large ripe bananas
2 eggs lightly whisked
3 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
2/3 cup (170ml) milk
1 tablespoon orange juice
6 heaped tablespoon icing sugar
Preparation:15min › Cook:20min › Ready in:35min
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Line a 12-hole muffin tray with muffin cases.
In a large mixing bowl tip the flour, sugar and oat bran; form a well in the centre.
In another bowl using a fork or potato masher mash the bananas then mix in the eggs, oil and milk.
Pour the banana mixture into the dry ingredients. Using a wooden spoon stir everything together for a few seconds until only just combined but still quite lumpy. The lumps will disappear during baking.
Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Let the muffins cool for 2 minutes in the tin then transfer to the wire rack to cool.
For the icing: Add enough orange juice to the icing to make a smooth paste. Drizzle the orange icing over the muffins and leave to set before serving.
