Nigella's Chocolate Banana Muffins

Okay.  If you've been following my posts recently, you'd remember that I mentioned a few of my colleagues bought me Nigella's cookbook 'Kitchen'.  I wanted to make something from this cookbook specially for them in appreciation of giving me this wonderful present.  So, finally decided on making the Chocolate Banana Muffins.  They are gonna love it as it's very soft with pieces of bananas in it.  It's not too sweet and very easy to make.

Makes 12 muffins
3 very ripe bananas
125 ml vegetable oil
2 eggs
100g soft light brown sugar
225g plain flour
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1tsp b.o.s.

1. Pre-heat oven to 180dC and line the muffin tray with paper cups.
2. Mash the bananas, beat in oil followed by the eggs and sugar.
3. Sift the flour, cocoa powder and baking soda. Add this to the banana mixture and beat till combined. Spoon into the prepared paper cups.
4. Bake for 20 min or until done.
Cool on wire rack.
