Method

Preheat the oven to 200/gas mark 6. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper muffin cases

In a large mixing bowl, use the back of a fork to mash the banana together with the egg until completely combined and only small lumps remain. Use a spatula to stir in the vanilla, orange zest, spices and salt.

Add the oil, molasses and milk, stirring until completely combined between each addition. Add the sugars and stir to combine. Add the baking powder and fold in the flour until just mixed. Do not overbeat.

Divide the batter evenly between the muffin cases so that they are ¾ full.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until the muffin tops are set and a cake tester inserted into the centre of the muffins comes out clean. Let cool in the muffin tins for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Mix together the icing sugar and orange juice and drizzle over the top.
