    Good basic muffin recipe and great way to use up manky bananas. I used the usual method of cake-mixing (creamed butter and sugar first, then added wet ingredients and finally flour) as I thought the suggest method was a bit strange (usually used for scones or pastry) and would lead to heavy muffins. Result was lovely springy muffins, but a bit dry (probably because I left in oven a bit too long). I added sultanas, which worked really well.

    Very nice and very easy to make, went down a storm, DCs had them in their packed lunches.

    Nice. Slightly heavy, but that's probably my baking skills! I made them with half the amount of sugar and maple syrup rather than honey (just because it's what I had in) and they were great. I also put a spoonful of mashed apricot into half the muffins which worked nicely.

    delicious! very easy to make. I added a spoon of cruncy peanut butter to mine (no nut allergies here) and the whole lot went that day!

    Very yummy and it got DS2 eating fruit (though he doesn't know it!) I added chocolate chips to mine for extra child appeal.
