Banana Bread/Muffins/Mini-muffins

Ok, so my husband and I are not very good fruit eaters. I try and try but fruit is not something we automatically reach for. When we are in the mood for fruit, we do have quite a bit of it but there is always one fruit that has a tendency to be overlooked. Bananas. They always go overripe at our house. Lucky for me, my husband and I love banana muffins. I have had a lot of good comments regarding this recipe so I decided to share it 🙂 I have a tendency to cut the sugar, so if you want a sweeter bread, add 1/4 cup more of sugar. I made 12 cupcake sized muffins and 12 mini-muffins. Enjoy!!!

Ingredients:

1 cup of sugar

1/2 cup of butter, softened

2 eggs

3 ripe bananas, mashed

1/2 cup of buttermilk

 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon of baking soda

1 teaspoon of salt

You can add nuts if you want – 1 cup

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Grease your baking pan (small loaf pan – need 2), cupcake pans (will make about 18), mini muffins (a lot)
  3. Combine all the ingredients and mix only until everything is moistened. (don’t over mix)
  4. Pour into your greased baking pan
  5. Bake at 350 F (Small Loaf Pans for 30-40 minutes, Cupcake Pans for 25 minutes, Mini muffin pans-15 minutes)
  6. Stick the banana bread/muffin with a toothpick and if the toothpick comes out clean, they are ready.

Enjoy with milk, tea or coffee!!
