Banana & Oreo Muffin

Muffin is common American term of bread that is baked in small portions. Somehow or rather it looks like cake or cupcake in shape but usually it is not as sweet as cupcakes and generally without any frosting.

Baking muffins is always an enjoyment time for me and my kid. Since it does not required much procedures I can always let him handle most of the task, which in a way helps to build up his self-confident too. And moreover I love that facial expression of him waiting patiently near the oven for the muffins to be ready.

Today I am going to share with you on how to make some yummy “Banana & Oreo Muffin” that consists of two of my boy’s favourite ingredients. From the photo you can see that the texture of the muffin is rather soft and moist that resemble cake like texture. And this can be easily served as a snack for either breakfast or teatime too.

These are some of the photos of the ingredients and steps on how to prepare the batter.

Ingredients: (make 6 medium-size muffins)
110g Of Butter, soften
100g (1/2 Cup) Sugar
110g (1 Cup) Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
2 Egg
2 Tablespoons Condensed Milk
2 Medium Banana, mashed with fork
6 - 8 pieces of Oreo Cookies
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
1/4 Teaspoon Banana Essence, optional

1. Sift the flour, baking power and baking soda together and set aside.
2. Remove the cream from the cookies, place the cookies in a ziplock bag, use a rolling pin, crashed the cookie into fine crumbs.
3. Cream butter and sugar with electric beater till light and fluffy(about 3 minutes on medium speed).
4. Add in egg one at a time and beat till the mixture is well combine without any egg trace.
5. Add mashed banana, vanilla essence and condensed milk into the butter mixture and give it a quick whisk.
6. Lower the mixer speed, add flour mixture and blend the mixture till smooth.
7. Stir in the oreo cookies crumbs till combined, scoop the mixture into prepared muffin cups to 3/4 full.
8. Top the muffin batter with some extra banana slices and oreo cookies, bake them in preheated 180 degree oven for about 20 - 25 minutes or till a toothpick inserted in the center and comes out clean.

  4. Hi Ellena,

    Look very nice and yummy :)
    Which type of flour you used for this muffin? Plain flour? Can I use only baking powder and double the amount, cos don't have baking soda.

  5. Love banana and oreo ^_^

    Can I replace the condensed milk with full cream milk?

  6. Hi Angeline: I use Plain Flour for this muffin, and if you don't hav baking soda, u can just add the baking powder, no nid to double the amt :)

    Neyeeloh: The purpose of the condensed milk is to sweeten the cake, if u don't hav, just add another 10g of sugar more :)
