Banana Date and Walnut Muffins

When I was in Canberra I stayed at the Hotel Realm - photos to follow later this week. They put on a really nice breakfast buffet and I took an apple muffin with me for the drive back to Sydney. I don't normally eat muffins, in fact I can't remember the last time I had one. When I returned to Sydney I'd already planned to make muffins using over ripe bananas I had in the fridge.

The apple muffins at the hotel were wrapped in baking paper and they looked far more appealling than the usual paper cases. I took one just so I could measure the dimensions of the paper and pinched their idea. The apple muffin tasted very good as well.

When it came time to make the muffins I realised I'd run out of raw sugar, a key ingredient in the recipe given to me by my friend Mandy. So I modified the recipe by using caster sugar, then substituting the oil with butter, replacing some of the wholemeal flour with regular flour, etc, etc. This is what I came up with.

I loved the little paper cases made from baking paper. I thought they looked a little like a nun's wimple.

I took the muffins into work last Monday but put mine in the freezer so I could take it home to photograph. I defrosted the muffin on Friday but didn't get a chance to taste it until yesterday. Even though the muffin was a few days old it still tasted pretty good though probably a little too sweet for my liking.

I'll be back on Wednesday with some photos from my trip to Canberra and Collector so until then,
