 How to make Banana Bread Muffins:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Use a mixer to cream the butter & sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Wisk the eggs & vanilla and gradually add them in until they are fully incorporated into the creamed butter & sugar mix.
  4. Cut the bananas in pieces, mash them up using a fork and add them in – don’t worry if the mixture looks a bit curdled
  5. In a separate bowl, mix together all dry ingredients – flour, salt, chocolate,     baking soda – add them into the liquid mixture
  6. Fold in the walnut pieces
  7. Using a bit of butter or oil, lightly grease the Royal Lace Baking Cups and,     using  a spoon, gently transfer the mixture into the baking cups
  8. Place the filled cups in a baking tray. Place the tray in the oven, on the         middle rack
  9. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean, around 20 – 25 minutes
  10. Take the tray out and let the muffins cool. Remove muffins and place them on medium-size serving dishes.
