For years I’ve loved baking, but I’m not always very good at it. Sometimes I can make amazing bakes, other times I can make more ‘meh’ kind of cakes. My skills really aren’t that great, and although I won’t be making star baker on GBBO anytime soon, my baking skills are slowly starting to improve. Recently I’ve started to perfect a few recipes, and one of my favourites is my banana and cinnamon muffins.
These muffins are quite basic, but when done well, they are super delicious. Because I’m pretty proud of how well my muffins have turned out, I wanted to share my recipe, and well show off a little at how good these muffins look.
All you need is:
200g plain flour (I used a gluten free one for these muffins)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large bananas, mashed
150g caster sugar
75g butter, melted
1 teaspoon cinnamon
This is probably one of the quickest and easiest recipes I’ve baked for sometime, and it only really took me 10 minutes to prepare. All I had to do was:
Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Place 12 paper baking cases in a muffin tin
Sift together the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt and set aside
Combine mashed bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter in a large bowl. Fold in flour mixture, and mix until smooth
Spoon evenly into baking cases in muffin tin
Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until muffins spring back when lightly tapped
… And ta dahhhh! The perfect banana and cinnamon muffins!

Since moving out of my parents house 4 months ago I’m a changed woman, I now like to cook. I now own several recipe books that aren’t just gathering dust, or propping up wonky chairs, and actually use them. Not only do I like cooking, but I’ve discovered that I’m kind of good at it,…
Maybe you’re like me and Valentine’s this year has just crept up on you, and before you realised it’s here. In a panic about getting a last minute Valentine’s gift for your loved one?

A few months ago I discovered Inamo in Soho and discovered how amazing their food was. I didn’t know at the time, but there are two Inamo restaurants, with another one around the corner from Piccadilly Circus. After the amazing experience Chris and I had we knew we had to go back, so when we got invited to try out the new menu…
When me and mum went on our recent weekend away to Manchester, after a long day at the Coronation Street Tour we decided we very much needed cocktails. I mean it’s not a girl’s weekend away without cocktails right? Someone had recommended The Alchemist to my mum saying their cocktails were pretty amazing. After a quick search we found it…
