Banana walnut muffins

September 21, 2014

You will need 4 large ripe bananas..

...I use a potato masher to mash the bananas. 

In a separate (med) bowl, add 3/4 cup of white sugar

...1/3 cup of melted butter,  slightly cooled (if the butter is too hot, it will cook the egg that you will be adding next.

...add 1 egg to the sugar/butter mixture

...stir until fully combined

In a separate (smaller) bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt.

 Mix the mashed banana with the sugar/butter/egg mixture until combined...then fold the flour mixture into the banana mixture...I know, I have overused the word "mixture" but at the time, that's all I could come up with!

Scoop or spoon the batter into muffin tins lined with paper cups or grease the cups...whatever you want is fine with me...fill them to about 2/3 full

Chop walnuts...


...sprinkle the chopped walnuts on top of the batter

...then bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown, remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

I realize that this muffin has no business being on a plate beside a soft boiled egg where toast "soldiers" should be, but I thought that it just all came together in a "Downton Abbey-esque" way!


Here is the recipe and directions...much easier than scrolling down and trying to follow it that way...
