Bake!

The Great British Bake Off has been back and it’s worked its way into my head. Telling me I need to bake. I just wish I could bake all the amazing goodies I see on the show.

Maybe one day. I’ll build myself up to it. But today, for today, I’ll settle on some pretty good banana bread muffins with a inner peanut butter goodness, and a little bit of icing on top.

The recipe I used can be found here. Pretty much followed the recipe, except for the ziploc bag part. I did mix it all in a bowl and then put it in a ziploc bag. But it all went wrong and the mix was just too runny for me to consider piping it into the muffin cases.

The only other change to the recipe was that I put a dollop of peanut butter in the middle. Peanut butter and banana combination is near perfect. Was also tempted to sling a bit of Nutella in there too, but … I stopped myself. There needs to be some self control.

First time I’ve baked without butter here. And it’s turned out very well, if I do say so myself. They’re nice and moist and not nearly as rich tasting as if they were baked with butter.

Now, who wants to help me eat them? Baking and living on your own is not a good health choice!

  1. I’m more than happy to help you finish them off! Human dustbin, that’s me.

    Oh, but hese look fabulous, Jaina. I’m a sucker for anything banana-related. Throwing in some peanut butter is killer genius :)

    Glad to see you on the GBBO wagon. I love that show more than is considered healthy. Though it has a tendancy to make me hungry…
