Salam to all,
A few months back I blogged abt my wisdom tooth that needs to be pulled out. It was giving me an excruciating pain a few days back and I finally plucked enough courage to go and see the dentist :pp Yeah it took me ages to finally made and appointment and get my *toot* to the dentist. A very long delay on my part and I was told by Mr Dentist that my gum was too swollen and there was an infection thus he cant pull the tooth out :( Haiizzz I was given some antibiotics and the only day available for me to go back and see my dentist again is next Tuesday. May Allah bless me with whatever I have to go through next Tuesday......uwaaaaa!!!! That's why I have been missing in action.....no mood :( cant even chew my food properly!! Such an agony....why!!???
Anyway I baked this muffins for my guests today. Kak Junn, Abg Arun, Zue & cutie Irfan came over as they were near my house collecting an item that they bought online. Thank you for coming over my humble abode ;) It really was a great afternnoon.
We were given a big bag of feijoas by one of hb's work mate and we cant finish them. As the feijoas have short shelf life, some were almost rotten and so, I shared them with the cow and sheeps hehehez. Decided to whip up these muffins as I dont want the left over feijoas to go to waste. Still have a few more feijoas left, if I am not suffering from this agony I probably would have them with ICE CREAM nyehahahhaz. My choice is either french vanilla or strawberry flavoured. Drizzled with chocolate sauce and topped with lots of chopped nuts or honey roasted peanuts. Drooollzzz...........
I used Rima's no fail banana muffin recipe and substituted the bananas with feijoas of course. As for the walnut and streusel topping....I got the idea from Happy Homebaker's Banana Walnut Streusel Pound Cake. That pound cake sure looks yummeehhh!! I am so gonna bake that pound cake one day. Got to wait until my tooth is pulled out first of course. I did have half of this yummy muffin earlier....it was really so soft and the streusel topping and walnuts were so crunchy making this muffin really2 yummzz. Don't believe me?? You can ask my guests hehehez :ppp
Muffins Recipe Adapted From : Rima @ Bisousatoi
Struesel Recipe Adapted From : Happy HomeBaker
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup of oil ( I used canola oil)
1 cup mashed banana (I substituted with feijoa)
25g unsalted butter, room temperature
25g icing sugar, sieve
25g cake flour
To make streusel, place butter, icing sugar and cake flour in a bowl. With a fork, mix together the ingredients to form a soft dough. Leave in the fridge to chill.
Break walnuts into pieces, place in a baking tray and toast it in a preheated oven at 100degC for 10mins. Set aside to cool.
Mix flour, baking soda and salt
Whisk sugar, oil and eggs until smooth. Add banana and vanilla, beating well. Add flour mixture and beat until well combine.
Sprinkle the walnut pieces on top. Lightly press into the batter with spatula.
Remove chilled streusel dough from fridge. Grate the dough over the top of the batter. Work quickly as the dough will soften very fast (especially on hot days).
Bake at 180C for abt 25mins.
Ok...gd nite all. Don't forget to brush ur teeth before going to bed. As for those who are Down Under....keep urself warm. It does feel cold tonight brrrrrr. TTFN ;)
