butterscotch muffins

B U T T E R S C O T C H  M U F F I N S



I made some muffins today and they turned out great. They’re from the Nigella book my friend let me borrow. You should make them too, they’re so easy to make.



3 very ripe bananas

125ml vegetable oil

2 eggs

250g flour

100g caster sugar

1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

150g butterscotch (or chocolate) morsels


1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees 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.

Makes 12


* I made half the recipe, so only making 6 muffins *

** I couldn’t find butterscotch morsels so i used caramel bits instead **

    1. haha! yes i am from Melbourne! that’s a bummer that we can’t buy butterscotch. i was thinking that it was only safeway that didn’t stock them :/ nigella suggests using white chocolate or dark chocolate, i think the caramel tasted really good. i had three for myself and shared the other three. haha! will definitely be making them again!
