Ingredients

White self-raising flour

1½ cup(s), (225)

Ground cinnamon

1 tsp

Banana

2 small, ripe, mashed

Buttermilk

¾ cup(s), (185ml)

Egg(s)

¼ cup(s), (60ml)

Vanilla bean extract

1 tsp

Vegetable oil

2 tbs

Carrot(s)

2 small, grated (140g)

Icing sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Line a 12-hole (⅓-cup/80ml capacity) muffin tin with paper cases.
  2. Sift flour and cinnamon into a large mixing bowl. Mix banana, buttermilk, egg, honey, vanilla and oil in a separate bowl until combined. Add banana mixture to flour mixture and stir until just combined (do not over-mix). Gently fold in carrot.
