    • @Angela – I have just made these for the first time and as I was putting them in thought ‘there is no baking powder! how weird’. But they have turned out really well and have risen. I use high grade flour so wonder if the type of flour could be a factor????

  1. Hi Angela, I make these muffins all the time and they rise well.
    My 14 year old daughter made them again this morning after I read your post and they were well rounded. Yes I do make them with baking soda. I wonder why yours didn’t rise.

  2. Hi

    These are great muffins. I love that I can make them straight after dinner & they are cooked by the time I finish the dishes. The kids love them too!! Totally recommend.

  3. These are great!! Have just made them for my daughters school lunch. They turned out really light too! Great receipe, will be using this one again, definately.

    • Hi,
      I greased my muffin trays with butter and they didn’t stick. It’s also best to remove your muffins from the tray while they are still warm. If you allow it to cool, they will stick.

  4. Have just made a batch of these muffins. Perfect. I was worried that the mix looked a bit runny but continued anyway. I used both silicon and non-stick muffin pans filling up to 3/4 level, making 18 muffins. Good rise, well rounded and slipped out of the pans no problem. This is definately being added to my cookbook, yum yum yummy!

  5. To add a little variation to this recipe and to make your muffins really mosit, I cream the butter n Sugar first, before adding Banana mix.
    In the banana mix, I add 1/3 cup of sultana’s soaked in 2 (heat very lightly and let cool) tablesppons of a pinot or melot.
    This little bit of extra fuild gives a really mosit muffin.

  6. Hi Helen,

    Loved the muffins, so easy to make. I made mine in paper cups as I wanted to take them to work as a special treat for my co-workers…Why do my muffins stick to the paper cups? I have made apple and date muffins that did the same.

    Thanks
