Banana and Blueberry Muffins

I have made these banana and blueberry muffins several times and they have always come out consistently good. I am actually quite pleased with them, they look like shop ones. They are quick and easy to make.

Fresh out of the oven, the top of the muffins have a very nice crust. I am usually not good at making muffins but have to say these muffins are fool proof and most important, not dense.

1 cup (150g) self raising flour

Method

2. Sift the flours, bicarbonate soda and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add sugar and dates and mix well.

3. Make a well in the centre of the mixture and add the banana, sunflower oil, milk and egg, then stir with a fork until just combined. Don't over-mix.

4. Spoon to paper cases and add 3-4 blueberry to each muffin.
