When I start a new baking project, I mean business. I’ll be in the kitchen obsessing over that recipe for days, and this time, it’s Banana Muffins. Helps that I have the harshest critic at home (a.k.a. my husband), so when he says it’s a good recipe, you best be damned, it’s a good recipe. Here’s a Banana Muffin recipe I’d like to share with you guys. I found this recipe online, but made several tweaks of my own.

Plus, if you are stuck at home during this Circuit Breaker, I’ve also shared some ideas on how to customise your own “baking packaging” (all you need is PowerPoint, paper and a printer!), for when you decide to bake for friends. I’ve been sending muffins to friends in the mornings to surprise them and make their day that bit more ‘interesting’.


RECIPE (Bakes 8 Muffins):

1. In a bowl, sieve:

1.5 cups of All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
0.5 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon Powder
Dash of Nutmeg Powder

2. Fold into another bowl of:

3 Large Bananas (Ripe in an Oven, Tutorial Here)
0.75 cup of Fine White Sugar
1 egg
75ml of Unsalted Butter
Dash of Vanilla Essence (Optional)

*Note: Prep the two bowls separately, then fold the dry mixture INTO the wet mixture.


175 Degrees Celsius for 12-15 minutes
*Note: Pre-heat oven for 10-15 minutes beforehand


  1. Buy Boxes and Cups
    You can go to baking goods stores like Phoon Huat or Bake with Yen, they are still open this Circuit Breaker.
  2. Design a Logo
    an illustration helps
  3. Design a sleeve on PowerPoint or Adobe Illustrator
    multiple test prints will be involved!
  4. Type a personalised message on the sleeve
    choose your own font here. In this case, I went for ‘Splendid 66’ as the font for my message
  5. Print sleeve on paper
    I like to go to Etsy or Fancy Paper to buy papers
  6. Cut the sleeve into desired width
    horizontal or vertical that’s up to you
  7. Double-side tape the ends
  8. Seal box with sleeve
  9. Tie with chosen ribbon/ rope
  10. Deliver!
    Choose Grab Delivery for the safe option!
