PUMPKIN BANANA MUFFIN


I did a little baking for our breakfast. Since I had pumpkin and banana in hand so the best thing to do is to incorporate them in this experiment.

This turned out incredibly moist and delicious. Really happy with the result, yet you can creatively think of other tweaks. Perhaps adding chopped nut or chocolate chip to the batter.  They're a perfect way to start the day!

PUMPKIN  BANANA MUFFIN
Yield     :      12 muffins

1  C  all purpose flour
1/2 C  whole wheat flour
1/2 C  pumpkin puree
1/2 C  mashed banana
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp  baking soda
6 TB  oil/melted butter
3/4 C  buttermilk
1/2 - 3/4 C  sugar
1/4 tsp salt

METHOD

Sift both flour, baking powder and baking soda in a mixing bowl. Preheat oven @ 175 C.

Combine buttermilk, oil, banana, pumpkin, sugar and salt,

Add banana mixture to the flour, stir until just moistened, add in cinnamon.

Pour onto muffin pan lined  with paper cases  3/4 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Remove and transfer onto rack to cool.

What a lovely combination! A friend just send me a pumpkin pie (tried first time), and gave that lingering taste (of wanting some more!)..

And yours having banana in it, must be really fantastic!

Thanks for sharing..
