Banana Muffin with Lemon Glaze

have this thing about banana muffin. I love to bake it so much. I'm obsessed!  I've tried so many banana muffin recipe, and decided to make a little experiment with my own ingredients. With this recipe, I already make 3 batch in 3 different moments. I guess that's enough to explain how good it is. 
I'm not going to bored you all with my messy writing. I believe those of you who enjoys banana muffin knows that whenever ripe banana and yogurt include on the recipe, it will be super moist and yummy.

 Feel free to make half of the recipe, as one recipe makes 12-14 muffins, depending on your muffin cup size. The key is to use very ripe banana, you know, with lotsa black spots on the skin :)

Here is the recipe :
6 medium size banana, mashed (appx 2 cups)
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
100 ml plain yoghurt
1 cup of sugar

2 cups of flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla (optional)

Lemon glaze, mix together :
1/3 cup of powder sugar
2-3 tbsp of lemon juice

How to :  
Heat your oven, 180 celsius degree

Mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside

Mix mashed banana and sugar, add oil, then add egg and yoghurt. Mix until well combine

Pour the dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mix until just combined. Do not overmix or your muffin will be tough!

Pour the batter into muffin cups, bake for about 20 minutes.

Lemon glaze : mix together the powder sugar and lemon juice. The consistency should be like shown on the above picture. Wait until the muffin is cool at room temperature before apply the glaze. Sprinkle some lemon zest. 

They are perrrrrfecto! the muffin is soft, moist and a little crumbly. It is not overly sweet, and the glaze combined perfectly with the sweet banana taste. It awakes your senses, sweet with a little sourness from the glaze. Highly recommended!
