Best Banana Muffins

These banana muffins are a just about perfect. They are moist, sweet, tender, light, banana-y… With a cup of coffee in the morning, they can even brighten up a dull rainy day. Yeah, I really like these muffins! If only I could find the perfect blueberry muffin…

banana muffins 02 The first trick is that you want 2 cups of wet ingredients. I measure them into my 2 cup Pampered Chef measure-all cup.

These are the things you MUST have:

1/3 cup melted butter

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 Tablespoons water

Then add 2-3 mashed ripe bananas.

Fill the rest of the measuring cup with sour cream.

In a large mixing bowl add:

1 cup flour

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredient in the bowl. Stir only until combined. (Think of it more as folding the ingredients into each other) You don’t want to overmix quick breads! Don’t worry if the batter isn’t smooth.

Grease and sugar muffin tins (about 15-18) or use muffin papers. Fill 2/3 full. Sprinkle tops with sugar.

Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until pick comes out clean.
