A special Muffin for a special friend, N., today it's your birthday and I wish you the best. Hope you like it: very american and a bit exotic...
For the muffins
150g Vegetable oil
1 Tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 170 degrees. Coat muffin pans with non-stick spray, or use paper liners.
Sift together the flour, baking powder and the mashed banana
Combine sugar, egg, and oil in a large bowl. Fold in flour mixture, and mix until smooth. Scoop into muffin pans.
Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
For the cream
150g fresh ananas
150g whipped cream
1 Tsp powdered gelatin
2 Tsp sugar
In a small saucepan, combine ananas puree and sugar over medium. Cook until bubbles form at edge. Add gelatin mixture and cook, stirring constantly, just until gelatin dissolves. Transfer mixture to a small bowl and let cool to room temperature. In a large bowl.
Using an electric mixer, beat cream and sugar until firm peaks form. With a rubber spatula, gently fold in ananas puree mixture until combined. Pour in a plastic bag and refrigerate until set, about 3 hours (or up to overnight).
When the muffins have completely cool down, decorate them with the cream. With scissors cup one edge of the plastic bag and spread it gently over the muffin.
I finish the decoration with crispy mandel.....
