Banana Muffins and Cake

I managed to bake some banana muffins and cakes whilst the weather was horrid outside. Basically it is the same recipe just that the cake takes 5 minutes extra to bake in the oven . The ingredients and recipe is listed under the photographs below.
 I had been up early hoping to get things done on the allotment but the weather had other plans . Rain , rain and more rain . It was mid afternoon before I got to try out the fire basket purchased yesterday - it worked! I suppose it would have worked better had the prunings been dry but smokey as they were they still burnt in the end , the ashes from which were later spread on the very small vegetable patch I have in the back garden and then I had some cake to enjoy and life isn't too bad after all despite what the weather might bring.

I started with 6 ripe bananas.

3 to be used to make muffins and 3 for a cake.

The bananas were mashed with a fork whilst the oven was pre-heated to 180 degrees Celsius. 

150grams of sugar was added to each bowl and mixed in.

1 egg was then added to each bowl and mixed in.

75grams of margarine was added to each bowl and mixed in.

In separate bowls 200grams of plain flour was mixed with half a teaspoon of salt , half a teaspoon of baking powder and
1 teaspoon of bicarb of soda. 

The flour mixture was then combined with the banana mixture.

1 lot of mixture was divided in to 2 x 8 inch lined tins.

1 lot of the mixture was put in to 12 muffin cases.

After 25 minutes the muffins were ready.

After 30 minutes the cake was ready.

Once cooled the cake was coated in butter icing.

And went down well with the family.
