Banana Nut Muffins

I made these banana muffins for breakfast this morning. They were really good. They were very rich; I might even classify them as more of a banana cake. This is the first thing I've made this week...Jason has been out of town all week, so I've taken a few days off from cooking! He's coming home tonight...YAY! Here's the recipe...

Banana Nut Muffins
my own recipe, adapted from several others...

1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup pecans, chopped
2 ripe bananas, mashed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or add paper liners to 12 cup muffin tin. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine butter and sugar. Mix to combine. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Gradually add flour mixture and beat until smooth. Fold in sour cream, pecans, and bananas. Scoop into muffin tins. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until muffins spring back when lightly tapped. Yield: 12 muffins

Note (6/15/07): I made these muffins several days ago and froze all but the one I ate. They have been great out of the freezer...I just pop them in the microwave on defrost for 30 seconds and they're just as moist and delicious as the morning I baked them.


  1. The question everyone wants to know is:

    How often does your nanny come so that you can bake and cook like that?

  2. Wow, I am definately going to be visiting your blog more often! Yummy recipes and great pics of family fun, what a super combo!

  3. A, I wish. You know, I was a live-in nanny for a family with 2 toddler girls and an infant in college. The mom was a stay-at-home mom, and I often wondered what she did. She would often say, "I'm going to take a nap." I never understood that...boy, do I understand it now!
