Banana is one of my favourite fruits.Though I love eating bananas as such,this time I wanted to try something different with bananas. So I decided to make banana muffins as I remembered watching this on a TV show and had noted down the recipe.I had all the ingredients needed for making banana muffins at home.This was the first muffin I have ever baked and it turned out so well. It was very tasty and delicious.I followed the exact recipe without making any changes except decorating it with slivered almonds.
Do try this simple and delicious banana muffins. I did not have a muffin tray but that did not deter me from trying this as I used paper cups for preparing this delicious muffins and that was also successful. I was so delighted as my very first muffins came out so well. You will get 12 muffins for this recipe.(Recipe courtesy-Rani Chellam)
