Sticky Toffee Banoffee Muffins


These naughty little muffins were dreamt up by the lovely Kirstie Allsopp. I found them in February's edition of Cook Vegetarian Magazine. I did hope to find the recipe on their website, so I could link to it, it just seems more honest. However, no such luck and as you cannot buy the magazine now that we are in the middle of March, I have decided to post the recipe. So forgive me and please go out and buy Cook Vegetarian!

The combination of banana, caramel and pecans is a good one and when you break into these muffins there are splodges of caramel inside. They are good cold, but even better warm. Warm caramel, mmmmmmmmmm!

  2. I am having complete condensed milk moment this week. Can you believe I'd never opened a tin of it before and what sweet joy this stuff is!!! I would definitely be up for trying it in muffins though I must admit, I love Kirsty to bits but am sceptical whether she developed the recipes herself or a home economist developed them and she just presents them in the videos on the Carnation website?!

    1. Well you could be right Sarah, but after seeing here in her handmade Britain, I can imagine she does bake at home. I did enjoy them either way.

  3. Just looking at them I can tell they are too sweet for me - which is a good thing as I have not had breakfast yet!

    1. Why not try them without the caramel Tandy? Banana and pecan would be good too and less sweet.
