Photograph by Lis Parsons
3 very ripe bananas
125ml vegetable oil
100g caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
150g butterscotch (or chocolate) morsels
1.Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6 and line a 12-bun muffin tin with muffin papers.
2.Mash the bananas and set aside for a moment.
3.Pour the oil into a jug and beat in the eggs.
4.Put the flour, sugar, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder into a large bowl and mix in the beaten-egg-and-oil mixture, followed by the mashed bananas.
5.Fold in the butterscotch morsels, then place equal quantities in the prepared muffin tin – I use an ice cream scoop and a spatula – and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
White chocolate or dark chocolate morsels can be used in place of the butterscotch ones - Nigella
