 Cake Method

1. Preheat oven to 170°C

2. Combine the ingredients together until smooth a hand held mixer helps!

    Add milk if the mixture appears to thick, aim for a light fluffy mix

3. Put cases in mini muffin tin ( i tend to bake a batch and then another to use all the mixture) this recipe will make about 36 mini muffins

4. Add a teaspoon of mixture to each case

5. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until inserted knife comes out clean

6. Cool before adding the topping

 

Banana Topping

1. Combine and beat all ingredients until light and fluffy (you may wish to add the icing powder a little at a time ( i tend to blitz this mixture with a hand blender as my daughter wont eat banana lumps but loves the smooth banana icing

 

2. Once the mini muffins have cooled, use a spatular knife and add a generous amout of banana icing, swirl the knife around the perimeter of the cake towards the centre and try to peak the centre for a more professional look
