Banana and jackfruit muffin

A friend made this and shared about this on FB. She was commenting on how fragrant they were while baking in the oven. I was intrigued. I have never cooked nor baked with Jackfruits (or more commonly known as Nangka here) and almost forgot how it smells. Hahaa.. so I decided to give it a try.

The lil' fella didn't like eating nangka. I realized that he's at this phase where he would double consider when comes to anything slimy or chewy, eg nangka, lychee... er.. and what else. Suddenly I got brain-freezed. Pardon me.. I'm writing this post at 3:14am. Yes it's 3:14am! I have been really occupied at my shop lately and with all my electronic gadgets failing on me (my personal laptop died due to the frequent electric surge or electric cut that's been happening in Sandakan, my Android phone has been half dead for over a few months.. its battery won't charge till over 50% and refuse to charge on powerbank) I have been quite lagged in terms of updating my cooks and bakes on my blog. I know that I won't be doing them if I get this delayed any further. So I woke up after about 6 hours sleep to do up this post.

I can still remisnesce the nice aroma of this cupcake looking at these photos. They turned out quite sweet, cos I actually pureed the banana and jackfruit. I wouldn't have done it if the lil' fella eats the jackfruit in pieces. I preferred having some textures in this muffin. So if you're keen on this recipe, try having a mix of pureed jackfruit with chopped jackfruit. I am sure they will turn out great, taste and texture wise.

The recipe is adapted from my favorite banana muffin recipe. I have made so many variations of it, and it has not failed me so far, unlike my phone and my laptops :p

*2 eggs 
*50g brown sugar (original was 100g)
*1 ripe banana and about 8 pieces of Jackfruits (chopped or pureed)
*100g top Flour (or plain flour/superlite flour/cake flour)
*1/2 tsp baking powder (original recipe had baking soda, I omitted it)
*60g grapeseed oil (this time I used rice bran oil)
*1/2 tsp cinnamon powder (I omitted this)
Topping (Optional)
*1tsp of cinnamon and 2tsp of brown sugar. Combine and sprinkle on top of cupcake batter prior to baking, OR 
*Rolled oat, OR

  1. Preheat oven to 170deg C. 
  2. Sieve flour and baking powder together. Set aside.
  3. Whisk eggs till frothy. Whisk in banana and jackfruit puree, and brown sugar.
  4. Fold in flour, baking powder and mix well with spatula.
  5. Add in oil and mix well.
  6. Spoon batter into cupcake liner. Decorate with topping (see above).
  7. Bake for 20min, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
