#letsgetfoodie3 – Flambé-ed banana muffins

Earlier this week, Amanda announced that the #letsgetfoodiechallenge was coming to an end. Since I hadn’t had time to put in my entry for the very last challenge beforehands, I thought I would say farewell with a bang (and flames) by creating flambé-ed banana muffins!Cake + Whisky | Flambé-ed banana muffins50g butter (+ 1 tablespoon)

250 plain flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

1 pinch of salt

100g caster sugar (+2 tablespoon brown sugar)

2 teaspoons honey

4 large bananas (ripe)

3 eggs

50 mL rum
Cake + Whisky | Flambé-ed banana muffinsMelt the 50 g butter and leave to cool.

Cake + Whisky | Flambé-ed banana muffinsIn a frying pan, melt the extra tablespoon of butter. Slice your bananas and add to the hot pan. Cook until it reaches the texture of slightly liquid jam.

I’d recommend you let the muffins cool down a bit before eating them, but I won’t blame you if you can’t! (I couldn’t and might have burnt my fingers a little bit taking them off the tin…)Cake + Whisky | Flambé-ed banana muffinsCake + Whisky | Flambé-ed Banana MuffinsCake + Whisky | Flambé-ed Banana MuffinsBut look at how pretty they are!
