Banana Blueberry Muffin (Preparation Time: 30 minutes)


  • 55 gms (1/2 cup) all purpose flour (maida)
  • 55 gms (1/2 cup) whole wheat flour
  • 60 gms softened, salted butter
  • 100 gms (3/4 cup) powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup blueberry jam
  • 1 small, ripe banana
  • Paper cups
  • Beat the egg in a mixer; sift powdered sugar (using a sieve) and add to the egg, beat the mixture till it becomes white and frothy

  • In a large bowl, sift and combine all purpose flour, whole wheat flour and baking powder

  • Microwave butter and milk, together, for two minutes

  • Mash the banana in a blender

  • Add banana, butter & milk and vanilla essence to the egg and sugar mixture, beat for about a minute in a mixer

  • Combine all the dry ingredients (both types of flour and baking powder) with the banana/butter/milk/egg/sugar/vanilla mixture and beat for two more minutes until you get a batter of soft dropping consistency

  • Line the muffin tray with paper cups (or grease the tray with oil and then dust it with all-purpose flour, shake it a bit and allow the flour to stick to the base of the tray, shake off excess flour)

  • Spoon the batter into the tray, filling half of the cup, spoon 1 tbsp jam, cover with some more batter (you may also top the batter with a few finely chopped almonds)

  • Preheat oven (convection mode in the microwave) to 180 deg C or 350 deg F, and bake until a wooden pick/ fork inserted in centre comes out clean, approximately 20 minutes
With this batter you could make about 5-6 mini muffins
