Super moist banana nut muffinsPosted: January 16, 2010
For our weekly breakfasts this week I wanted a muffin and we had way, way, way too many old bananas, so banana muffins it is. I found this recipe on RecipeZaar.com and were great and super moist!
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 overripe bananas
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup soft unsalted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup pecans, chopped (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly butter 24 muffin tins. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder,cinnamon and salt; set aside. With an electric mixer, whip the bananas and sugar together for a good 3 minutes. Add the soft butter, eggs, and vanilla and beat well, scraping down the sides of the bowl once or twice. Mix in the dry ingredients just until incorporated. Fold in the nuts if desired with a rubber spatula. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins to fill them about halfway. Bake until a toothpick stuck in the muffins comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before turning the muffins out.
