100 grams Unsalted Butter
60 grams caster Sugar
1 ripe Banana
80 grams All Purpose Flour
40 grams Fine Semolina
2 tsps Espresso Coffee Powder
1 tsp boiling water
1/4th tsp Baking Powder
1/4th tsp Baking Soda
1/4th tsp ground Cinnamon
Walnuts for a topping
Pre-Heating Oven: Do not pre-heat your oven at the start. Prepare your batter mix first. This gives the batter some time to rest and flavours to seep in. You’re welcome :)
No Marbled Design: Don’t try to create a marbled effect, let the batter choose its own path of spreading naturally. Your end result will be gorgeous.
Baking Time: Use your judgement while baking as ever oven/ OTG works differently.
Step 1: Grease 6 muffin moulds with a drop each of coconut oil or butter. Set aside. Step 2: Blend the butter, sugar, eggs, banana, vanilla essence baking powder and set aside.
Step 3: In a bowl add the sifted flour, semolina, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. mix well with a metal whisk.
Step 4: Pour the egg batter in and fold well with a spatula.
Step 5: Spoon half the batter into another bowl. So you now have 2 bowls.
Step 6: In a third small utensil/ tadka pan, add the espresso powder to the boiling water and mix well.
Step 7: Use a strainer and pour this concoction into any ONE of the bowls and stir vigorously till the batter changes to a coffee brown.
Step 8: Now use a teaspoon to scoop a portion each of the plain batter in the moulds and tap gently.
Step 9: Use another teaspoon to scoop a portion each of the coffee batter. Don’t tap the container now.
Step 10: Follow it up with another scoop of plain batter and spread it gently so as to cover/ hide the coffee batter.
Step 11: Top them with a walnut each.
Step 12: Bake this in a Pre-heated Oven, 180° C / 350° F for about 25-30 minutes. The muffins will rise a bit, be firm to the touch and do the toothpick test. It should come out clean.
