Banana Walnut Muffins


1 1/2 Cups all purpose flour, sifted
3 bananas, very ripe
1 egg, beaten
1/3 Cup vegetable oil (I prefer butter here but was too lazy to melt it!)
1/2 cup sugar(you could use more, my bananas were verrryyyyyy sweet)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
A pinch of cardamom powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 Cup of walnuts, chopped coarsely

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Sift the flour, add baking powder, baking soda, salt & cardamom powder. Mix well to ensure that there are no lumps.

Mash the bananas well & add the vanilla essence to it.Add the beaten egg along with sugar & oil and mix well.

Add to the dry ingredients.Add the chopped walnuts and mix well to bring everything together.

Line the muffin pan with muffin paper cups & add enough batter to fill each cup to about
2/3rds to the top. Sprinkle chopped walnuts on top of each cup.

Bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes. Check for doneness. A toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin should come out clean and at this point the muffins turn a beautiful golden brown color.

This recipe yielded about 12 muffins.

Muffins are best served warm. I love to have this for dessert with a little bit of whipped cream on the top !
