Equipment

Ingredients

For the muffins:

  • 2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
  • ¾ cup (165g) caster sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ cup (125g) butter melted
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups bananas mashed and ripe (approx 2-3 large bananas)
  • ½ cup (120g) sour cream
  • 3 eggs

For the caramel:

  • cup (80g) butter
  • ¼ cup (55g) caster sugar
  • ¼ cup (45g) brown sugar
  • 1 tbs golden syrup
  • ¼ cup (60g) sour cream
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

Conventional Method

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius (fan-forced). Grease 2 X 12 hole muffin trays and set aside. 
  • In a large bowl, sift the self-raising flour, caster sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and gently mix until combined.
  • In a seperate bowl, mix the melted butter and vanilla extract in with the mashed bananas and then add to the flour mix. 
  • Add the sour cream and gently mix until just combined. Add the lightly beaten eggs and then fold the mixture until combined.
  • Spoon into muffin tins until approximately ⅔ full. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden and the top pops back then touched softly.
  • Meanwhile, make the caramel by placing the butter, caster sugar, brown sugar and golden syrup into a saucepan. Melt over a low heat, stirring to ensure it is well combined, the sugar dissolves and it does not burn.
  • Once melted, add the sour cream and salt, mix and then bring to a light simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes or until it slightly thickens.
  • Once muffins come out of the oven, allow them to cool slightly and then pour the caramel over the top. Serve warm or cold.
