Spiced fig, walnut and banana muffins

2 cups flour
1/2 tspn baking soda
1 tspn baking powder
1 tspn cinnamon
1 tspn ginger
1/2 tspn mixed spice
1/4 tspn nutmeg
100g butter softened
1/2 c sugar
1 egg
2 mashed bananas
8 dried figs chopped
1/2 cup walnuts chopped
4 tbspn milk

i love taking photos of figs...

Preheat the oven to 180 celcius and line muffin tray with muffin cases.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, mixed spice and nutmeg.
In a small bowl, mash the bananas.
In another small bowl, cream the butter and sugar.
Add the egg and the banana to the butter and sugar and mix well.
Pour the wet mix into the dry mix and fold till combined.
Add the figs, walnuts and milk, stir.
Place about a tbspn of mix into each muffin case.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden ontop.

Serve with a big scoop of icecream.

Make sure you sift the baking soda otherwise there might be some lumps.
This recipe was adapted from a banana bread or loaf recipe, so if you would rather, place it into a loaf pan and bake for about 45 minutes (or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean).
