Banana Nut Muffins

I have been thinking of making these muffins for a while now.  I had a few bananas which were ripe and no one was going to eat it.  I was telling myself that tomorrow I am going to make the muffins out of this so they are just wasted.

I come from work on a Saturday and told my daughter that lets make some Banana Nut Muffins and she was super excited.  Started my recipe search and turned to pick the bananas up and I don’t see them.  I asked my husband what happened to those ripe bananas, he goes I threw them.  I am like are you serious?  There goes my plan.  So waited another week to see if I will have any more ripe bananas.   This recipe is taken from Food Network and is by Tyler Florence.

My husband and my daughter loved it.  I am not a baker as is so kind of hesitant to bake anything because I have had quite a few cake disasters in the past.

 Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour (maida)
  • 1.5 tsp baking soda ( i used only 1 tsp)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 riped bananas
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup melted butter and cooled
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup pecans ( used walnuts)

Directions:

In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.  Using a fork mash 2 bananas roughly so they have a little texture.

With an electric mixer using the whisk wire, whip the remaining two bananas along with the brown sugar for a good 3 minutes.  Add the melted butter, vanilla essence, eggs and beat well, scraping down the sides using a spatula.

Now add the dry ingredients and mix until incorporated.  Fold the mashed bananas and nuts into the batter.  Using the spoon, put the batter halfway into the muffin pan.

Pre-heat the oven at 350 F.  Tap the muffin pan so that the batter is distributed evenly without any air bubbles.

Bake it for about 18-20 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.  Let it cool down for a few before taking them out of the pan.
