Muffin Madness

Here are the recipes for the muffins from my previous post.

Nectarine Muffins:

Ingredients:
3 Nectarines, chopped
1/2 cup soya yoghurt
1/4 cup soya milk
1/3 cup oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1.5 cups plain flour
1 tsp bakin soda
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Method
Chop the flesh of the nectarines (I don't bother to peel as they look pretty with the red skin showing). Whisk together yoghurt, milk, oil & vanilla. In a separate bowl mix together dry ingredients and then tip into the wet and mix until almost combined. Add the nectarines and mix till no lumps of flour remain. Don't over-mix!

Put into muffin cases and bake at 180c / 350f until a knife / toothpick comes out just clean. It took about 20 minutes in my oven.


Banana & Peanut Butter Muffins
The peanut butter is an addition I don't normally add but I just fancied it yesterday. I added 3 tablespoons but really I think it could do with a bit more! Let me know how it turns out if you add more and it comes out ok.

Ingredients:
3 ripe bananas (the browner and yuckier they look on the outside - the better!)
1/4 cup of sunflower or rapeseed/canola oil
3/4 cup soya milk
1 cup of golden castor sugar
3 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
2 cups of plain flour
1tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda

Method:
Either mash the bananas with a fork, or if you're lazy like me use a stick blender! They don't have to be smooth just get rid of the major lumps. Then add the oil, milk, sugar and peanut butter and mix well. Stir together the flour, salt and baking soda and then add to the wet ingredients, stir until just combined.

Put into muffin cases and bake at 180c/350f for about 20 minutes (until tester comes out just clean).
