Baking at 10

as in at 10 pm. Mica whose on school vacation is into baking. Her requests to bake at past 10 pm sometimes gets into me but yes I am a mom who would not forsake her children request to learn so yeah we were mixing and folding batter at suppose to be bedtime. And note I am awake since 6:30 am which means by 10 pm I am already a zombie. To add up to that, the little guy seems to be so enthusiastic about her sisters qualms of me not diving into their fits tugs me forcibly into the kitchen. Pulling and pushing and wet kisses and big hugs is how they entice me to pull out the ingredients from the pantry.

What did we bake? Banana and Nutella Muffins

If you want to make a batch of 12 of your own banana nutella muffins you will need
1 3/4 cup of flour (better if you have self raising flour)
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup melted butter
3 ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla extract
nutella - depends on how rich you like your muffins


Pre-heat oven to 180C or 350F. Line your baking pan with muffin liners. In a bowl mix flour, sugar and salt and in another bowl add eggs, butter, vanilla and mashed bananas. Tip wet mixture to dry mixture and fold. Divide mixture into twelve cases half full. Add warmed nutella in each batter in the case and swirl. Swirling is the fun part for the kiddos but be sure not to turn the whole thing chocolatey. Do this for all and then pop it into your over and bake for 20-25 minutes. Stick a toothpick in the middle of the muffin and when it comes out clean it is done. Let to cool down and serve while still warm


The little helper can't wait and was telling me to take the semi cook muffins out of the oven and look there he was after I serve it on the table. It was still hot that's why he could not touch it but boy he was the first to taste it.

Trivia: Nutella is a brand name of hazelnut chocolate spread.
