Banana Corn Flakes Muffins / Corn Flakes Muffins

I told you that i have been slowly getting into baking mood. Specially when i am in my amma's place and my sisters are at home, i totally enjoy baking at that moment. I baked this beautiful muffins, oats brownies, white bread and the yummiest chai masala cake which i baked yesterday. It was so amazingly good. I have plans to make a marble cake as soon as the chai masala cake gets over. I am craving for homemade cakes often nowadays. It is a perfect excuse for me to bake a lot.

Making some baked goodies from cornflakes was always in my mind for so many days. Somehow i managed to bake one few days back. This recipe is completely mine, i added what all i feel like adding in to the batter and the result was pretty good. 

They were little dense, but that didn't affect the flavour at all. I enjoyed warm muffin with a cup of milk and it was perfect. My sister told that it was perfect for breakfast, since it is not so rich and sweet. The muffins which i made were little big ones, so i got 6 out of them. But if you use small trays then you will probably get more, make sure you reduce the baking time too.

I added half a banana in this recipe, to make the muffins soft. And it definitely worked. They made the muffins moist and gave a lovely aroma to them. The corn flakes which we added gave a lovely crunchy top to the muffins. There is no butter in this recipe, which is probably the plus point and also i think adding oil rather than butter in a cake or muffin makes it much better and you can enjoy one of two without any guilty.

I hope you will try this out and let me know what you think..
