Cupcakes by any other name, these two flavours are wonderful together: the one complements the other in one delightfully moist muffin.
· Mix the flour, cocoa powder and bicarb together and add this mixture, beating gently, to the banana mixture, then spoon it into the prepared papers.
· Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, by which time the muffins should be dark, rounded and ‘peeking proudly’ out of their cases. Allow to cool slightly in their tin before removing to a wire rack.
3. I think this is a really easy recipe and I truly wasn’t expecting such wonderful muffins as these!
I can’t resist showing you these fantastic oya which I used instead of flowers in the middle of the table. Oya refers to the lace that village women make with a very very fine hook/tığ and use to edge headscarfs, like the one I am wearing in my profile picture at the top. I bought these last weekend from a market in the Selçuk area. They’re amazing, aren’t they?
