Banana and Almond Muffin

I have always had a fascination towards baking. Recently I made my first baking attempt. And it was a banana- almond muffin recipe. The recipe was super hit and I was super excited!! I loved the combination of the two. Hope my baking success will continue after this.


Ingredients:

1. All purpose flour (maida)- 1 cup
2. Salt- 1/4 tsp
3. Sugar- little less than 1/2 cup
4. Baking powder- 1 tsp
5. Baking soda- 1/2 tsp
6. Chopped almond- 2 tbs
7. Banana- 2
8. Curd- 1/2 cup
9. Oil- 1/2 cup
10. Egg- 1
11. Vanilla essence- 1 tsp

Procedure:


Pre heat your oven on 350 degree F (pre heating an oven helps the oven to reach to the desired temperature from all side, the timing of pre heating vary from oven to oven. In my oven it takes 6 minutes. Just select "Bake" option and select the desired temperature, press start, it will  automatically stop after pre heating and there will be a sound). 


In a large mixing bowl add maida , sugar , baking powder , salt and baking soda. Mix everything well. Now add the chopped almond and mix.


In another bowl whisk the egg properly. Add the curd , oil and vanilla. Whisk it well. Mash the bananas properly. For a great taste you should use ripe bananas, the one with brown spots on the skin. Those bananas are really sweet and they add a nice aroma and flavor to the muffins. Now add the maida mixture slowly to the egg mixture. Mix everything with the help of a spatula. Do not over mix. Just moisten the dry ingredients. Place muffin papers in your muffin pan and fill each cup up to two third of height. 


Now place the muffin pan inside the oven and bake it for 25 minutes (as it took in my case). After finishing insert a tooth pick to check whether it is properly done from inside or not. If the tooth pick comes out clean, its done. Keep it inside for a minute or two as it helps in attending the nice brown tinge. Take it out after that and cool the muffins. Your delicious Banana - almond muffins are ready.
