Although this recipe calls for plantains they can by hard to come by. Bananas work equally well in a pinch.


Serves: 16 

  • 1 1/2 cups (185g) plain flour
  • 2/3 cup (150g) sugar
  • 1/2 cup polenta
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk
  • 1 cup mashed, ripe plantains
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup (85ml) corn oil
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees C. Grease 16 muffin cups or line with patty cups.
  2. Stir the flour, sugar, polenta, baking powder and salt together in a bowl. Whisk the milk, plantains, eggs, oil and butter together in a separate bowl. Mix the flour mixture into the milk mixture until just combined; do not over mix. Allow the mixture sit at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes. Pour into prepared muffin cups to about 2/3 full.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden and the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 15 to 18 minutes.
